Who else is in the picture?
Who else worked there?
wanted to forward some photos of our very successful Chart House Reunion Friday nite.
Betty said people would come to the restaurant for the Bread and Mud Pie alone.
Paul told me his first "real" job was as a Chart house dishwasher when he was a young teenager. Then he went to college in Charleston and became a waiter in the Charleston Chart and then transferred to here in the summer. He became a head waiter too in which you are first among peers and close the restaurant for the managers. Bebe I think was a hostess but I'm not sure if she also later became a waitress. Too many people too many years!
Paul Cifaldi is now a Hilton Head Island businessman and his wife, Bebe, is an elementary school teacher.
Schmoozing: Is that John McNichol I see in there? And Nancy Cappelman?
Our reunion was a great success - lots of people showed up, even from Savannah and Beaufort, and best of all everyone had so much fun seeing old friends, co-workers and pics of the past.
Remember that energy I was wondering about? Where does it go when they tear the building down? Well I think I got my answer - it resides still in the people and jogging the memory with a reunion brings it out.
So many people made a point to thank me and Gail for doing this and reminding them of good times and good people. It was just a ton of fun and happy faces.
I heartily recommend you have a Packet Reunion party too.
Everyone asked us to make it an annual event and telephone calls to distant ex-Charters made it clear they would be happy to fly down for such an event. A great time was had by all and a very upliifting feeling pervaded the night.
In the early to mid-1970s the Chart House had on Monday nights and all-you-can-eat beef rib dinner for $5. It was fabulous. My wife and I went there Monday night after Monday night after Monday night.
I know it was famous for its Prime Rib.
