coney island wonder wheel guy 1991
I wish I could remember his name- he got out of WWII came straight to coney-got a job working the wonder wheel and never left. he used to let me on the ride for free & made me feel special. One day he was really drunk and fell on me while I was painting. You can see him in the video below at the very end letting rupaul & friends off the ride!

Don Knotts loved Eddie Izzard!!!
Tonight on the blog LAist I read a nice interview with Don Knotts daughter Karen Knotts. She's got a new show in town. I have always LOVED Don Knotts (even though I was terrified as a child watching "the ghost and mr. chicken-it was the bloody piano keys!) READ IT HERE!! It's really good. I bet he was a swell guy!

I hate yelp!
Had a psycho bad night at work on sunday night and this jackass decided he HAD to write about it on yelp! Glad to say-Matt my manager hates yelp too and wrote them that this is why we workers hate yelp. I wonder if this guy ever has a bad day? and it sure does not take much to scare him!
I think EVERYONE should have to waiter for at least 6 months in their life. They would be forever changed!
The jackass's post on yelp:
Well, when part of your dining experience involves being terrified of your server, you know you are at least in for an experience.
When my girlfriend mentioned to me and her Pop that the fried bananas were well reviewed here on yelp, our server overheard that and said "Oh God, I hate yelp." One other thing she hates, her job. And she wasn't shy about letting anyone know. She warmed up by the end meal and thanks God the food was good or else, I may never come back.
The mexican corn on the cob was awesome and so was the habanero cream salsa and chips.
The rest of the reviews on here sum the rest, but as for me our server clearly defined our experience here at Malo.
