Last time O'Reilly and Sharpton were together was at Al's civil rights convention. O'Reilly attended and Al even debated Sean Hannity. Bill and Al got together again to have dinner at Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem. If you don't know about Sylvia's, its a Harlem landmark and one of the best soul food restaurants anywhere.
