BOSTON (CBS) — Who says a Boston athlete can’t make any friends in New York City?

Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco extended an offer to his more than 3 million Twitter followers on Monday to dine with him in New York.

“Dinner in NY tonight 1st 200 people at Sylvia’s Restaurant by 7 pm in Harlem. Leave ya money/credit cards at home,” he tweeted Monday afternoon.

Sure enough, Ochocinco followed through on his word. The restaurant’s Twitter feed posted a picture of a line that stretched around the corner.

Not satisfied with just making dinner friends, Ochocinco also said he gave his phone number to the fans who showed up to eat.

“Met 200 hundred people 2night. Now I’ve 200 new friends, even better 200 new friends have my phone number,” he tweeted.

But his phone hasn’t been ringing off the hook, he lamented.

“I gave 200 people my number and only 13 people have texted me. That’s rhino droppings!!!” he wrote.
