Tony Sampas sent along the following note to accompany the above picture:
Paul Marion and I had lunch a the Olympia (“The Greeks”) so that we could see the spire of St Patrick’s Church while we dined. I started to tell the waiter it was too bad that they didn’t have cornedbeef and cabbage when he whipped open the menu. Those are the hands of the poet in the top of the frame.
The menu reads “St Patrick’s Day Special – Dine-In or Take-out — Corned Beef served with cabbage, potatoes and carrots —- $10.
Tony doesn’t specify whether the corned beef was red or gray; gray is my favorite
