y ďŹ rst memories of Worcester include getting to know then-coworker Scott Zoback over plates of Jamaican food and a pitcher of water with a fresh slice of watermelon at One Love Cafe on Main Street. I bumped elbows from diner stools while eating French toast dripping with syrup and butter in the wee hours of the morning at the Boulevard on Shrewsbury Street and I watched the city wake up to a Sunday morning while sipping black coffee and tasting local cheeses and fruits from a slate on the outside patio at Armsby Abbey on Main Street. In Worcester, we go beyond thinking food simply fuels us. We make it a part of our social and professional lives. In this year’s Krave issue, we dig deep to ďŹ nd our city’s establishments offering foods from around the world, those serving what now seems to be almost hip to eat – bacon – and traditional plates with a twist. Let your mouth water as you recognize your favorite meals or discover a new one you won’t be able to resist ordering tonight. -Brittany Durgin | Editor

T

he last of four planned public forums aimed at helping the city better allocate federal funding yielded far more questions than answers. That was by design, as city officials and representatives reached out to residents in a jam-packed, standing-room-only All Saints Church Monday night in an attempt to find out which needs and services they most want addressed. It wasn’t perfect - some of the approximately 75 in attendance, for example, left wondering why theirs was the only one of the meetings where surveys were not distributed. Other questioned the lack of available interpreters for the many Spanishand French-speaking members of the community. Most, however, agreed a framework had been laid and almost everyone was in unison that public outreach efforts should spill out of City Hall and into Worcester’s neighborhoods more often. “I would like City Hall to get out here more than once every four years,” said Jordan Berg Powers, a Worcester resident who works in Boston. “I’ve seen them out here only once. A few years ago they held a community development hearing at City Hall at, like, 5 p.m. That doesn’t work for most people. This is great. You saw the room was full. There is a thirst for this discussion.” The discussion centers around the funding and allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME programs. In recent years, the city has seen a marked decrease in the amount of federal funding for those programs. Over the past five years, according to Dennis Hennessy, director of the city’s Neighborhood Development Division, block funding has been cut 30 percent. Last year, he said, the city received $3.9 million in CDBG funding. That paled in comparison to the more than $6 million requested

by various organizations throughout Worcester. “We’re hopeful it stays at least the same [this year],” said Hennessy, who is also serving on the Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC) that held the forums. “You never know. We won’t know our allocation until after the election.” The public forums - previous gatherings were at the Senior Center, Great Brook Valley Community Recreation Center and Straight Up Cafe - are being held in the shadow of a report last month from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that said some of the city’s community development corporations (CDCs) improperly used funding through block grants, HOME and other programs. The report also alleged the city did not provide proper oversight. As a result, HUD froze more than $3 million in housing-related programs. “We’re working with HUD now to clarify all the uses of funding,” Hennessy said, adding the bulk of the issue involved HOME funding and not block grants. “It is mostly being worked out through the housing division. I believe the funds were used properly. We’ve got to show that to HUD.” Monday’s forum lasted well over an hour and left residents wanting another meeting, which Hennessy said is possible. CDAC member Amy Mosher facilitated the meeting, which marked the first time

the committee had ventured out to area communities in preparation to allocate federal funding. In the past, she said, the process involved area CDCs and programs telling the committee how much money they wanted. “This is not a funding conversation,” Mosher said. “It’s about what’s more important to us. We want to hear from everyday people, their ideas.” Residents were invited to shout out any and all issues they felt should be addressed. Later, they were each given four dot stickers and asked to apply them to four of six poster boards, each representing a specific category: jobs, housing, education, public safety, health and transportation. Among the needs voiced by residents were public safety, schools, affordable housing for single individuals, business development and affordable summer programs. The biggest impact, however, came in the passionate testimony of residents explaining why they were at the meeting. One of them, Martha Assefa, fought back tears as she spoke. “I’m tired of not sleeping at night knowing there’s not enough help going to people,” she said. “Like today, I saw way too much I should not be seeing. I grew up in a third-world country and I’m fucking overwhelmed. More resources need to be coming to this neighborhood. I continued on page 6

Stop and Go: Street project backfires on city Walter Bird Jr.

A

controversial $200,000-plus road-improvement project at the intersection of Salisbury and Forest streets that was supposed to start earlier this month is expected to get underway Monday, but critics remain incensed over not being told about it in the first place. Not even minor modifications to the original plan are enough to satisfy some homeowners living near the busy intersection. One of them, Luis Darosa, says he won’t stop fighting city hall until he finds out why abutters and area residents did not learn of the project until surveyors started pounding stakes into their yards. “It’s not just what’s happening here,” Darosa says of roadwork that will, among other things, add new lanes to a highly traveled section of the city that handles a lot of traffic from neighboring towns, as well as students walking to and from school. “It’s the procedure. Everything that was sent out (notices) was because of me. If I had not started poking around, [city officials] would never have done anything.” Public works and other city leaders have admitted erring in not notifying people living near the intersection before surveyors showed up and started staking off property. Darosa, a retired schoolteacher, says he only learned of the project when his Chihuahua started barking one day for no apparent reason. “I went outside and saw a gentleman in an orange vest poking around my front yard,” says Darosa. “I said, ‘What are you doing?’ He said the city is dedicating a lane out of Salisbury Street onto Forest and a lane off Forest to get onto Salisbury.’ I said, ‘Are you kidding me? When was this advertised?’ He said, ‘I don’t know.’” Darosa says he immediately contacted his attorney about obtaining an injunction to stop the project from going forward. He brought his concern to the city’s engineering department, where he says he was shown a project plan, and City Manager Mike O’Brien – who Darosa alleges would not meet with him until he cornered him at City Hall one day asking

whether surveys had been done. Later that afternoon engineers arrived at his house, according to Darosa, where he was once again shown plans for the street work. Those plans, he says, were different than what he had previously seen. Darosa says he contacted District 1 City Councilor Tony Economou, who pushed to have a public hearing on the issue. The council’s Committee on Public Works held that hearing, during which several people spoke – most of them in opposition to the project. Moylan ended up agreeing to make some modifications to the plans and bring them back to the committee, which he did Tuesday night. “The project will go forward,” says Moylan, saying proper notification will be given to abutters for any future projects. “We made one mistake and it was a big one. [A worker] started banging stakes on private property without giving any sort of information. We are chalking it up to mistakes like this happen from time to time.” The city is working on 125 streets this year, Moylan says, and there have been no other major glitches. Moylan says he did not expect the outcry that erupted over the Foster/Salisbury streets project. “I’m not sure anybody did,” he says. “I really was surprised because we all thought everybody would say, ‘Hallelujah, something is finally happening here.’” At-Large Councilor Kate Toomey, who chairs the Committee on Public Works, says critics were right to be upset about the lack of information disseminated about the project. “I think the folks were warranted in their concern without knowing what was happening,” she says. “The administration usually notifies residents of work that will be happening. They apologized. They’re trying to move on from here.” Darosa, however, is not quite ready to let the issue go, saying, “I’m going to get to the bottom of this. I want to find out how we can do a project like this without having a study done, without any report whatsoever. This has been a veil of secrecy.” Have a story idea or comment?

say these things not because I don’t have faith ...but we need resources. I’m tired of not getting them.� Keesha LaTulippe said she was there on behalf of her mother and other elderly individuals. Both in her comments during the forum and by email to Worcester Mag later that evening, she spoke of the need for more food for the elderly. “A year ago my mother explained to me she needed to get to the food pantry in order to be able to get things like eggs and meat, but my mom doesn’t have a vehicle,� LaTulippe said. “She lives in subsidized housing. So of course I said I could bring her when she needed to go. Well, my mom has always had a big heart and she was saying how terrible it was that so many other people in her building were not able to get the food at the pantry because they don’t have transportation. So my mother organized a number of people to serve as volunteers to pick up food for

more than 20 neighbors each month ... However, the food pantries are running out of food. “My mother will never go hungry. She has family that can take care of her. But what about all of those other seniors who don’t have that family support? What about the hundreds of other seniors in the buildings who are eligible for emergency food, but there isn’t even enough food for the ones we are helping?� After the meeting, Hennessy acknowledged not enough surveys were available for distribution. Surveys were handed out at each of the other three meetings. As for interpretive services, two women helped a Spanish-speaking woman and French-speaking man. District 4 City Councilor Sarai Rivera interpreted the Spanish. Have a story idea or comment? Call Walter at 508-749-3166, ext. 243, or email wbird@worcestermag.com

YOU KNOW TIMES ARE TOUGH WHEN …: Worcester County Sheriff Lew Evangelidis has

talked about budget cuts, but things must really be tough: His office is still using paper with former Sheriff Guy Glodis’ letterhead. Chief Deputy Dave Tuttle, providing some budget information to a reporter during a recent visit to the Worcester County House of Correction, scribbled some numbers down on a blank piece of paper. Upon closer review, he was writing on the back of a sheet with the previous sheriff’s name and information on it. According to Tuttle, the office kept a lot of old blank paper to use for scrap and notes, rather than let it go to waste. Evangelidis, he noted, has his own letterhead for official memos.

SMOKED OUT: Back in July, Smokestack Urban Barbecue owner Richard Romaine was rumored to be serving up his last free bacon Thursday nights at 90 Harding St. Well, it’s official. Romaine tells Worcester Mag the restaurant’s last day in the complex, recently bought by Canal Market Place Development LLC (CMPD), was Sunday. He says he is moving to 139 Green St., about five blocks away, and plans an early November opening. Kevin Curtis, one of the two principal owners with CMPD told Worcester Mag during the summer he had plenty of potential tenants lined up should Smokestack Urban Barbecue leave. There has been no confirmation since of any new businesses at 90 Harding St.

THAT’S NO BULL: Felix Baumgartner survives his death-defying, did-he-reallyjust-do-that jump from space on Sunday, which is a really good thing for one local company. The David Clark Co. on Franklin Street outfitted the Austrian skydiver with the pressurized suit that kept him safe from harm as he plunged 24 miles to earth, reaching a speed of nearly 834 miles per hour in the process in a stunt funded by energy-drink maker Red Bull. It has not been easy to get in touch with someone from the 71-year-old company in the days immediately following Baumgartner’s historic dive, but representative Dave McCarty called Worcester Mag Wednesday, saying things at the usually-quiet facility have been “over the top” with all the public attention. McCarty said he was on the phone with someone from England. Employees “are thrilled to death it was a successful jump,” he says. “It’s really quite incredible.” All publicity aside, however, McCarty says he hopes things return to normal soon. “I think this was a one-up type thing,” he says. “We are relatively a quiet company.” COME ON DOWN!: As he hurried around making final preparations for Tuesday night’s council meeting, mayor Joe Petty’s Chief of Staff Mike Lanava sported a yellow, arrow-shaped name tag with his name spelled out in black marker. When someone mentioned it, Lanava let folks know he was headed down to Hanover Theatre, where a traveling production of “The Price is Right” was being held. Sadly, Drew Carey was not the host (no Bob Barker, either), but Lanava said it would be just like the real thing, with prizes awarded to winners. Worcester Mag was hoping he might win a new toaster oven. SIXTEEN CANDLES?: At-Large Councilor Rick Rushton took a moment at Tuesday night’s relatively brief council meeting to let folks know Wednesday was District 4 Councilor Sarai Rivera’s birthday. At-Large Councilor Konnie Lukes’ was last week, Rushton noted. Lukes took off almost immediately after the meeting ended. Rivera lingered for a bit and left with a card and birthday cake.

When I read about the alleged abduction of Christina Andrianopoulos at the hands of an alleged shady bunch of Liberians… well, I was concerned. Sort of. I figured I’d wait until I saw it on CNN before I got too worked up about it. I figured an American held for $5 mil would generate headlines, so I waited for confirmation of the story from the networks. I’m still waiting. While I wait, however, let me turn my attention to a different kind of torture – the kind real people suffer every day. I was invited last weekend to attend a fundraiser, one quite unlike the usual sort. Not a single politician held court at this event, and the drinks were free. They were served in the cramped kitchen of a one-family house off Burncoat Street, and several of the appetizers involved goat. The LBGT (lesbian/ bisexual/ gay/ transgender) Asylum Support Task Force of Worcester needs money — it’s that simple. They need serious money for serious things — like food. And clothing. You know — the basic stuff we all take for granted. The LBGT Support Asylum Task Force has one goal: to provide a safe haven for those persecuted in their homelands simply because of sexual orientation. The task force works to support the basic human needs of LBGT people seeking asylum in the United States — that means housing, clothing, food, health care and psychological care, cell phones (vital for contact with lawyers and loved ones) and transportation. The cozy Burncoat Street location, owned by a big-hearted woman named Joyce Molinari, currently provides basics for men and women from Morocco, Jamaica and Uganda. In recent years, 50 people from 14 countries have been assisted by the task force. Attorney Lisa Weinberg handles the mounds of red tape, while Dr. Lucy Candib of Family Health Center of Worcester volunteers her services. On the night of the group’s fundraiser, the atmosphere was casual as Jamaican tunes thumped from a computer; Rev. Judith Hanlon, aka Pastor Judy from the Hadwen Park Church, spoke briefly about the purpose of the task force. Pastor Judy is dedicated to those seeking

refuge from persecution, and her passion to that end is palpable. I listened as survivors of torture and abuse stood up, one by one, and shared their stories: 22-year-old Tarik, a soft-spoken Muslim from Morocco still sporting braces, told of the brutal beating he endured when his homophobic older brother gained access to his computer, which apparently revealed correspondence that branded Tarik as a homosexual. “All that mattered to me was my studies,” said Tarik, “but I escaped on the next train from the home I loved.” Tarik would learn via the social network that a city called Worcester, in a state known as Massachusetts, would welcome him and help him start a safe, new life in a place safer than home. I learned about a gay Jamaican man named Linford, who was attacked with a machete; he would become the first person helped by the task force. Wesley, also from Jamaica, was told that his home would be burned to the ground, knowing full well that as the house burned, men with shotguns would stand at each doorway to ensure he didn’t escape. Beatings, suicides, rapes… the stories went on, even as those telling the stories shied away from sharing their experiences. No grand embellishments were heard at this gathering; instead, those who spoke skipped over their most dreadful memories, even as tears streaked their cheeks and silenced them. There was no grasp at celebrity here. Instead, I saw people struggling to find the words that might convey the dangers of being “different” in places where “different” “disgusting” and “disposable” might be synonymous. All of those who spoke were well-educated, hard-working individuals who were driven from their homes simply for being gay. Their homophobic brethren chased away the crème de la crème, leaving behind criminals and murderers in favor of individuals who contributed to their communities. All who spoke were adamant that they left the abuse and death threats, not the country, and that homesickness is part of the everyday obstacles they face. The task force keeps roofs over the heads of those enduring the grueling process of being granted asylum, and it exists because of contributions from the community, though grants are being considered at this time. While the primary goal of the task force is to meet the immediate fundamental needs of the persecuted, its secondary goal is to educate the public. Consider this columnist among the recently educated.

Letter to the Editor

Message from one of the 47%

I

am 82, a retired educator, living on retirement and a small amount of Social Security and Medicare. I pay property tax, income tax, sales tax, excise tax, gas tax, and numerous other fees and taxes, hidden or overt. Along with my fellow teachers, who live off public monies, there are firemen, policemen, all the public servants who pick up our trash, repair our streets and sidewalks, care for our parks, patrol our borders, guard our airports, fight for our country when needed, do the research our industries need so they can produce the advanced medicines and other goods we want. For many years now, we represent over 50% of America’s workforce, and we do all the truly vital work this society needs to survive...When there is all this talk about cutting down on government, it usually means firing or laying off many of these workers, creating a vast number of unemployed people, and cutting down on vital public services, which we all expect, and which are not profitable and therefore will NOT be picked up by private industry. Private industry will not pick up the responsibility for caring for the returned veterans coming back disabled, maimed, ill, or fighting the ghosts of their experiences who should be our responsibility for as long as they need us. All of us are members of the 47% who have been labeled as irresponsible and expendable. But have Mr. Romney and his friends considered what would happen to America if all of this group would stop serving our country in our various ways? There is another group that lives off the government (i.e. the taxpayers): the corporations who live off government grants, make huge profits performing various “services” at inflated prices, and bribe our elected officials to pass legislation that will enable them to feed at the public trough for years. I live in Massachusetts and watched Bechtel-Parsons parlay a $2.6 billion project into an open-ended $15 billion boondoggle, and still going... all at public expense. A look at the “privatized” services being offered to our service personnel in Iraq and elsewhere by Blackwater (who now has a different name – but a rose by any other name still stinks) and Halliburton, will easily show you how much more expensive it is for us, the 47% to let corporations do these things. And while the insurance companies suck the profits out of our health, and the testing companies grow fat and rich off our public schools, the golden goose (the middle class – those of us who support both the very rich and the poor) grows smaller and leaner, and works harder and harder for less and less. Is that the America we want? Many other nations can produce all kinds of goods, whether under dictators, presidents, Kings, Ayatollahs, premiers, emperors. But what has always set America apart was our unwavering belief in the sanctity of the individual, our right to be free, and our expectation that our government will help us, treat us fairly, and protect us, wherever in the world we go. Our constitution has been widely copied in many nations whose peoples yearned for the same freedoms. This election is crucial – it will determine whether we still believe in that America, and will begin the hard task of wrestling it back from the 1%, or whether we will continue our precipitous descent into greed and inequality. The fight is not between individuals, but between two very different philosophies: no matter how they try to hide it, the devotees of Ayn Rand are on one side, and those of us who believe that we ARE our brothers’ keepers, regardless of whether we follow Moses, Jesus, Gandhi, Mohamed, Confucius, or the Dalai Lama, are the other side. The choice is ours to make on November 6, and we will have to participate. E DIT H L. M OR G A N Worcester OCTOBER 18, 2012 • WORCESTERMAG.COM

BEGGIN’ FOR BACON

{ kr¯ave}

AREA EATERIES FEED THE CRAVE IN NON-TRADITIONAL WAYS Walter Bird Jr.

Long gone are the days when bacon was just a side for eggs – or the first letter in a BLT. The salty, scrumptious treat has earned its own place in the middle of your plate and hungry diners wouldn’t have it any other way. As Joy Flanagan, a manager at Armsby Abbey, puts it: “Bacon is a craze.” It is being served in new and unique ways – chocolate-covered bacon, anyone? Heck, it’s even part of the drink menu in some restaurants, serving as a garnish in such popular beverages as the

CHEDDAR BACON WINGS Wing It Up

bacon fat and putting a slice of bacon into bourbon. The concoction is frozen. When the fat becomes solid it can be removed, but it leaves a bacon flavor. The mix is then combined with a whole egg, milk and maple syrup before being “shaken up like the dickens,” according to Flanagan. You can also order a Bloody Mary at Armsby Abbey with bacon as a garnish. The bacon, by the way, is made on site from pork bellies bought from Adams Farm in Athol.

Bloody Mary. So what are some of the more unique ways bacon is being cooked up and served in Worcester? Look no further. Here, we give you a sampling of dishes and where you can find them. CHOCOLATE-COVERED BACON Ritual, 281 Main St., Worcester 508-762-9501 ritualworcester.com Chef Sean McCabe was inspired to combine chocolate and bacon at a local iron chef competition, where chocolate was the secret ingredient. He paired it with duck. At Ritual, he serves up chocolatecovered bacon using Dutch chocolate and bacon from North County Smokehouse in New Hampshire. “The bacon is hormonefree and there are no nitrates, which is important to me,” McCabe says. To prepare this appetizer, the chef cuts a slab of bacon into three pieces and roasts them. The bacon is dipped into chocolate and then covered with toasted almonds and walnuts. For syrup, McCabe uses a port wine. If you’re looking for a drink to enjoy it with, McCabe recommends a spicy red wine. How in demand is this bacon creation? It was served up at the recent Harvey Ball celebration. For those who simply can’t get enough bacon, McCabe also prepares bacon-stuffed dates. “It’s just one of those comfort food kind of things,” he says. “You can’t go wrong.” CHEDDAR BACON WINGS Wing It Up, 591 Park Ave., Worcester 508-755-9464. wingitupworcester.com Cheddar bacon is one of 75 flavors available at Wing It Up. As owner Frank

Besada says, “People die for bacon.” They just may if they eat enough of this madefrom-scratch, cheddar-based sauce that is mixed with real bacon bits. It’s not just for chicken wings, however. The sauce can be put on the side to use on other goodies, like fries and onion rings. It is also used on the restaurant’s Philly Steak and Cheese. But make sure to try the cheddar bacon wings. Those who have, love them, according to Besada. “People love to have bacon with chicken,” he says. APPLE AND BACON GRILLED CHEESE Armsby Abbey, 144 Main St., Worcester 508-795-1012. armsbyabbey.com The bacon at this hot spot is cured, smoked and sliced on site. At Armsby Abbey, bacon finds its way both into what you eat and drink, but more on the drink later. For the Apple and Bacon Grilled Cheese sandwich, the fresh apple slices are brought in from Tougas Farm in Northborough. The bacon comes from pigs at Smith Farm in Winchendon. The two are paired with Vermont cheddar cheese and served on house-baked bread. “It really is a great mix of flavors,” says Flanagan.

Now that that’s out of the way, we still thought it was worth mentioning that the Smokestack serves up a mean candied bacon – for free! Patrons have long been enjoying this smoky temptation from 8-11 p.m. on Thursday nights. The recipe is rather simple: take some bacon, coat it with brown sugar and bake it until the sugar melts down over the bacon. Romaine doesn’t do the bacon drink thing anymore, although he used to coat the rim of glasses with it on certain drinks. “It’s neat, but those are things that are a little too novelty,” says Romaine.

ETHNIC MARKETS IN WORCESTER INTRODUCE UNUSUAL TASTES  Taylor Nunez

In the restaurant-ridden and marketplace-packed streets of Worcester, foodies can rejoice and relish in local tastes. However, beyond the familiar flavors, Worcesterites can dine on

14

international delights, too. Though trying new foods can be a blended mixture of excitement and fear, the city of Worcester is filled to the brim with experts all too willing to share their native cuisines. Without so much of a step outside the City of Seven Hills, take a peek at the fare that three of the many Worcester ethic markets have to offer. Ed Hyder’s Mediterranean Marketplace 408 Pleasant St., Worcester edhyders.com. Opening nearly four decades ago, Ed Hyder has been bringing Middle Eastern and Mediterranean treats to the Worcester area with expertise. Beginning with importing jewelry and gift items from the Middle East, after the Lebanese civil war began and sources were scarce, Hyder opened the marketplace in 1975 to bring quality ethnic foods to the Middle Eastern, Greek and Armenian population in the city. Since its inception, the marketplace has evolved into a multi-ethnic shop featuring more than 3,500 items including coffees, teas, spices, beans, grains, flours, European and domestic

cheeses, and more than 500 restaurant and collectorquality wines, marinated meats and kabobs, prepared salads and side dishes, to name a few. With such an array of delicious and somewhat familiar food, one may be a bit timid to jump in to try duck fois gras (duck liver), escargot (French dish of snails), British chow-chow (a relish that can be eaten on bread or with dishes such as fish cakes) and Indian pickles. If in the mood to pack your taste buds with some punch, Hyder suggests making a night of unique eats and presenting appetizer courses with some proper wine accompaniment. For Hyder, having the marketplace gives the perfect opportunity to bring a taste of home to natives now living in Worcester. “For most ethnic groups, foods are the touchstone that helps maintain contacts between the culture and family. Our range of items help bridge the gap between old world memories and new world realities.” Beyond those with a hankering for their country’s specialties, Hyder takes pride in delivering to those who may find the marketplace’s offerings to be a new adventure. “Opening the eyes of people to the foods of other cultures helps to make their lives more interesting and enjoyable, and helps to train the next generation of customers.” Try something new and visit Ed Hyder’s Mediterranean Marketplace. Open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (closed on Sundays). Baystate Bakery/Baystate Shawarma and Grill 86 Water St, Worcester baystatebakery.com.

in 1991, specializes in Lebanese/Syrian bread. First of its kind in New England, Bay State Bakery owner Ayman Jaber opened his unique bakery on Millbury Street in Worcester. After years of quality goods and service, the bakery now resides in a new home located at 54 Rockdale St., which contains the stateof-the-art machinery used in baking enough bread to deliver to restaurants and chains of supermarkets all over New England. In addition to the bakery, in 2001, Jaber partnered with his cousin to start a store to sell a variety of Lebanese food, beyond the grain, and Baystate Shawarma and Grill was born at 86 Water Street. Outside the delicious, but accustomed to, breads, Baystate Shawarma can offer Lebanese tastes to those hailing from the Mediterranean and those who may find the Lebanese fare unusual. Shawarma, the obvious inspiration for the store’s name, is a gyro with shaved meat (typically lamb, beef or a mixture of the two), is just one of the many traditional items Baystate Shawarma and Grill offer. Falafel (fried balls/ patties made from ground chickpeas), stuffed grape leaves, hummus, shish kabob and grilled chicken all make an appearance as well. Jaber’s unique cooking also boasts a fatoosh salad (popular Lebanese salad of mixed greens, lemon vinaigrette dressing and pita bread), fried kibi (a fried roll stuffed with ground meat and spices), baba ghanouj (a spread made from ground eggplant, sesame seeds, olive oil, lemon and garlic) and tabouli (made of bulgur, finely chopped parsley, mint, onion and garlic, tomatoes, olive oil and lemon juice). To round off the vast menu, Baystate Shawarma and

Grill doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave out the old standbys of spinach, cheese and meat pies. Since opening Baystate Shawarma and Grill, over the past 10 years, the market and restaurant has expanded to better serve its loyal customers and give a more aesthetic atmosphere.

over a decade. Its mission was and remains the same – to provide the city a place to experience products, ingredients and cuisine that are different from the average American market. In its years in the business, Binh An Market has had the opportunity to grow in the products they carry and thus so has its customer base. Offering fresh fish to exotic fruits, Binh An Market regularly switches up its offerings. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, popular Vietnamese sandwiches are offered and patrons have the choice of beef barbeque or regular ham and pork. Though said items may seem tame in the world of market products, there are several fruits that may scare off the average consumer. “I would like to believe the fruits are the most ‘off-the-wall.’ For example, Durian is the stinkiest fruit in the world. Behind the smell and its porcupine feature is a taste and texture that would leave those unfamiliar to it nauseous,” explains employee Si Thai, a student at Framingham State University. The taste is largely debated but most agree Durian is indescribable and unlike any other fruit in existence. With the interesting variety in products hailing from across the world, Binh An Market is pleased to be able to share exotic goods with Worcesterites. “It is important to offer such items in Worcester because it allows people to travel the world through their taste buds,” Thai says. To see all that Binh An Market has to offer (and maybe take a chance with a taste of Durian) stop by, open from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. daily. Ed Hyder offers an array of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean goodies along with prepared foods, soups and salads.

When choosing whether to dine in or dine out, Worcesterites have it easy: with so many great restaurants and dozens of different styles of cuisine, dining out is always the ďŹ rst choice in this city. While Worcester has a great selection of foods that cover many traditional stylesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from great Italian food from CafĂŠ Espresso or hard-to-

Since being reopened by owner and cook Kim Kniskern in 2006, this lunch-car diner has been dishing out several plates that you can only get in Worcester. While Miss Worcester serves traditional breakfast items and also has a dozen original creations, three dishes stand out on the menu as being absolutely unique.

Island,” where a copious scoop of fried rice with onions and peppers serves as a makeshift raft for two fried eggs and a thick slice of spam. Another local favorite is an apple pie French toast, where three hefty slices of egg-soaked French toast are slathered with an apple pie filling, sprinkled with powdered confectionary sugar, and served up with a dollop of whipped cream. While these two delicacies would please any breakfast-loving palate, we decided to focus on the self-described

“world famous” Banana Bread French Toast. Standing behind the iconic counter at the Miss Worcester, Ms. Kniskern was playing the role of host, server, cook and owner—flipping plate-sized pancakes, stacking piles of French toast, and also preparing a plate of banana bread French toast. Two dense slices of French toast are wholly submerged in the French toast egg batter, drifting in the sauce pan for several minutes, soaking through each morsel. The slices are then flipped onto the

After cooking through for a couple of minutes, Kniskern—who recognizes with a smile and nod that this is a customer favorite—tosses the slices onto a plate and cuts them into fourths, stacking them delicately upon one another. Before serving, a scoop of butter is put on top that instantly melts, and chocolate syrup is drizzled over the slices with a perfect squirt of whipped cream. While some Miss Worcester regulars may lean toward the peanutbutter-and-banana French toast, the banana bread French toast delivers a perfectly sweet breakfast treat for the most important meal of the day.

Lt. Governor Murray’s Famous and Enormous Beef, Mushroom and Guinness Pie at O’Connors Restaurant and Pub, 1160 West Boylston St., Worcester Going from one side of the city to the other, our next unique dish comes from none other than O’Connor’s Restaurant and Bar, the iconic Irish pub that skirts the northern border of Worcester’s city limits. Since 1989, husband and wife Brendan and Claire O’Connor have served hearty Irish fare with more than a few items becoming local favorites. Dishes with staying power are typically renamed after local folk heroes, as was the case with Brady’s Filet Mignon becoming “Tom Brady’s” sometime after 2001, and with our second unique Worcester dish: Lt. Governor Murray’s Famous and Enormous Beef, Mushroom and Guinness Pie. The dish begins with a malty and thick Guinness stew, loaded with onions, celery, warm carrots, and mushrooms, and any empty spots are filled in with thick hunks of continued on page 22

slow-cooked beef. This meal-sized stew is topped with a famous and delicious flaky pie crust, which unleashes a torrent of steam when any diner takes a first bite. Brendan O’Connor admits that this dish may be unique to Worcester, but the meal is direct from Ireland noting that the only difference is size, proudly exclaiming in his authentic brogue that “the stews in Ireland are small: tennis ball sized or golf ball sized. Ours of course are enormous— football sized at least.” While many locals come for their favorite fish and chips, Mr. O’Connor is quick to suggest another

unique item—Dicey Riley’s Chicken and Broccoli with Boxty Potato Pancake. This chicken and broccoli dish is served with a mustard cream sauce and sits beside a large, flat potato-onion-and-scallion fried pancake. While Brendan and Claire’s stews are set apart by size alone, the chicken and boxty is a dish that is certainly only served at O’Connors Restaurant and Pub in Worcester.

Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza at Corner Grille 806 Pleasant St., Worcester From the north side to the west side, we take you to Corner Grille, a small restaurant serving wraps and pizza pies at the intersection of Pleasant Street and Richmond Ave. Corner Grille is known for its delicate and charred thin-crust pizza, a crisp sliver of crust that holds unique combinations of toppings that pack a delicious wallop. While delicious wraps like the Harvest Turkey (imagine Thanksgiving dinner packaged up in a

handy wrap to go) and bacon-loaded Chicken pesto are lunch favorites, Corner Grille boxes up a famous Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza which owner Raena Heppenstall confirms is the most popular item at the restaurant. When asked where Corner Grille came up with this unique dish, Heppenstall responds, “I fell in love with Caesar dressing in the 1980s and begged the waitress at the Wildwood Restaurant in Marlborough for bits and pieces of their recipe. I perfected it for years. Salad is a perfect companion for pizza. I thought

Raising a glass to wine everywhere

Hacer Vino Al Vuona

I is the third-largest producer of wine in the world behind Italy and France. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s n Spain the term hacer vino means to make wine; and boy, do they. In fact Spain

more, Spain has a relatively large number of highly regarded wine-producing regions that turn out world class wine such as Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Priorat. Some regions are dominated by one style more than another, yet most produce an array of both red and white. Grape varietals such as Tempranillo, Garnacha and Monastrell are common in most reds, while Alberino and Verdello are found in many Spanish whites. For a time Spanish winemaking was considered very rustic and steeped in oldworld tradition. This meant that many wines required long-term aging before it could be served. Today a new generation of winemakers has adopted techniques whereby wines are approachable upon release. Like much of Europe, Spanish wines have place names with Rioja perhaps being the most famous. Classic and bold, these wines taste mostly of their Tempranillo roots and have a rich, hearty ďŹ&#x201A;avor to them. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more these wines are food friendly and go well with steak and other meats. For that special occasion try a ďŹ ne sparkling wine from Spain known as Cava. Bright and bubbly this is a terriďŹ c wine for celebrating or maybe just kicking back. The wines of Spain like many countries are regulated by a classiďŹ cation system. The most basic level is Vina de Mesa (table wine) followed by Vino OF THE WEEK de la Tierra (country wine), DO (mainstream quality wine) and DOC at the very top of the quality chart. Las Rocas Without a doubt, Spain is a destination for very Garnacha, 2009, good wine. With prices ranging anywhere from $7 Spain: about $12. to $150 a bottle, there is a lot to choose from. Till next time, buena suerte.

Giovanni’s Italian Bakery, located right at the rotary construction on Hope Avenue, is a cozy, traditional bakery with solidly good cupcakes.

When I went, there were three cupcakes to choose from. Golden with white frosting, chocolate with white frosting (both had lovely fall decorations), and carrot cake. Of the three, the carrot cake was my favorite as it packed a deep and rich carrot flavor. The frosting was subtle, as well, letting the vegetal taste really shine. It also had a thicker crumb. Both the golden and chocolate cupcakes were very good, with a very silky crumb and balanced flavors in both the cake and frosting. Like the carrot cake frosting, these cupcakes had subtle flavors that suit well for a light bite, and the frosting was a nice, creamy texture. They made for a great snack that was just sweet and rich enough to satisfy. Additionally, all three cupcakes were reasonably sized and priced accordingly, making them a great selection for a passing craving of cupcake goodness. If you’re looking for a delicious, everyday simplicity in your cupcake snack, definitely stop by Giovanni’s.

The Best of Both Worlds at Pepe’s Trattoria, 274 Franklin St., Worcester Our tour of Worcester’s unique dishes stays with pizza, but moves to the opposite side of the city over to Pepe’s Trattoria on Franklin Street just beyond the looming shadow of Interstate 290. Though Pepe’s features a long and welcoming bar and also has a full menu of Italian favorites, it has quickly garnered local acclaim for making some of the best Italian-style pizzas in the Heart of the Commonwealth. Where Corner Grille features insanely thin crusts, Pepe’s isn’t afraid to serve up a delightfully doughy crust. According to owner Theresa Travaglio, Pepe’s most popular pie is the margherita pizza, simply featuring fresh tomato, sliced mozzarella and basil. While guests may clamor for the traditional, Pepe’s most unique dish in the house is called “The Best of Both Worlds,” a dish that is half Buffalo chicken pizza and half potato pizza. While it’s true that O’Connor’s Restaurant and Pub serves up its own locally renowned potato pizza, the potato pizza at Pepe’s is a serious contender for the title of “best potato pie in the city,” while it features thinly sliced potatoes, bacon and a biting cheddar cheese. This pizza would nearly be unique enough to make our list, but when cooked alongside Pepe’s Firecracker pizza, the tasty duo reigns. The Firecracker is a Buffalo chicken pizza with spicy breaded buffalo chicken, drizzled bleu-cheese dressing and diced cucumbers spread all across the top. When asked what gave her the idea to combine these two very different pizzas, Travaglio said simply, “We decided to put the two together because they were two of our best sellers. The potato pizza is an old Italian recipe that we added a little American flare to it, while the firecracker was thought of by my son Pepe.” Travaglio’s son Patrick Romeo, or Pepe for short, “loves cukes and puts them on everything,” thus the decision to toss diced cucumbers on this Buffalo chicken pizza

was an obvious one. Once you take a bite, the refreshing cucumbers are welcome relief to the hot and spicy chicken. The Best of Both Worlds pizza is made to be split between two people, as both get to enjoy flavors that are completely different, but come together in one harmonious and delicious masterpiece. BBQ Mac and Cheese at Smokestack Urban Barbecue 139 Green St., Worcester We did not want to travel far from Pepe’s for our final unique Worcester dish, and thankfully we did not have to, driving just down the street to Smokestack Urban Barbecue on the corner of Temple Street and Harding Street. While Smokestack is preparing for a move to 139 Green St., manager Cara Girouard took time out to explain what makes our final unique Worcester favorite so special-Smokestack’s delicious BBQ Macaroni and Cheese. Girouard explains that the BBQ Mac and Cheese, a mix of slowsmoked barbecued chicken, pork and beef sitting snugly beneath a dome of cheesy macaroni, started as a preshift snack for some of the diners behind the line. “We always have the Combo of BBQ Meats on hand as we use it in a few of our dishes (“The Kitchen Sink” and “Over the Top Fries,” to name a couple), and it became a quick, handy snack that the staff could grab pre-service, and always with a scoop of our homemade mac and cheese.” It was only a matter of time before this staff-favorite landed itself on the menu. While many guests “order it as soon as they’re seated,” servers find it “an easy sell” to those who may be hesitant, simply because it is a staff favorite as well. While the BBQ Mac and Cheese is a unique dish that should serve as an appetizer before any meal at Smokestack, Girouard adds that for entrées, diners must try the grilled or fried fish tacos, the Cajun sauced shrimp and creamy grits, or the chicken fried steak--a marinated and fried steak topped with its signature creamy sausage gravy. When it comes to dining options, Worcester has something for everybody, but it also has a few of the most unique and delicious dishes around. Our tour has taken you to all corners of the city, each with something memorable. Be sure to let us know with a letter or comment on our website (worcestermag.com) what your favorite unique Worcester dish is.

perfect companion for pizza. I thought that anything I loved to eat could be transformed into a pizza-pie concept. Why not marry the two? Voila! Chicken Caesar Pizza Pie!” She adds that customers were first hesitant to approach the dish, “but one bite was all it took to create a convert.” After the Chicken Caesar Pie, Heppenstall says that guests must try the Tipsy Goat, featuring “chardonnay leek sauce, prosciutto, chicken and goat cheese topped with peppery arugula.” Finally, the owner adds that the Corner Grille is not only pizzas and wraps, but serves offerings to fulfill many different cravings—from huge slices of homemade mac and cheese, creamy hummus, and of course its famous molasses-cream-filled oatmeal whoopie pies. With so many options, Heppenstall says that “some people are not even aware that we serve pizza!”

No Trigger kicks off a string of shows at Ralphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diner with friends Smartbomb Brittany Durgin

Worcester band No Trigger formed in 2000 and is not what it was 12 years ago.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went from being a full-force touring machine band and not doing anything else besides the band to it being more or less â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;vacation-core,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says No Trigger vocalist Tom Rheault.

Then, in the ďŹ rst week of November, No Trigger leaves for a weeklong tour in Japan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went one other time in 2007 in the winter with Strike Anywhere. It was a huge culture shock. It was one of the coolest and most different places you can play music.â&#x20AC;?

No Trigger returns to Ralphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s following their CD release show at the venue earlier this year, to play a show with bands Smartbomb (of which several members use to play in No Trigger), After the Fall (N.Y.), Anchors (Australia), The Stereo State (western Mass.) and Antillectual (Netherlands). The show will be the preparty before No Trigger heads to Florida to play one of the biggest music festivals in the country followed by a headlining tour on the other side of the world. The Fest, a three-day music event in Gainesville, Fla., brings together punk musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest bands.

The idea was expanded and promoted for the London Lesbian

One New York contestant came painted yellow wearing only a speedo bathing suit in representation of “Ray, a drop of golden sun.” Audience members receive a bag of props to use during the course of the movie as instructed by the host. This highly interactive “Sound of Music” show can be a hoot by letting your imagination

Quickly it was discovered that the concept appealed to young woman and children who attended the show in groups - often becoming a bonding experience and not just a film screening. The ever popular movie musical, shown on a big screen in large capacity venues, the sing-along show has been seen by audiences in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Holland, Austria, Russia and other locales around the globe. The full evening’s entertainment begins with a host explaining sound effects, hand pantomime, shout-outs and singing out loud with on-screen lyrics. Prior to the

(Mrs. Fosse) and Chita Rivera. Chicago closed after 936 performances, a relatively short run, after another big show opened that season stealing the crowds. The subject matter of “Chicago” is also suspected to contribute to the short run: two women, convicted murderesses, beat their raps and become famous entertainers in the freakshow world of celebrity. The musical score has some tuneful songs but many are dark, sarcastic and irreverent. Chicago was cast into show-biz lore, but never really forgotten by theater lovers. In 1996 the husbandand-wife producing team, Barry and Fran Weissler, bought the rights for a threeperformance run that was a hit in New York. They decided to move the atmospheric production with the band on stage and no sets to Broadway. It recently surpassed 6,600 performances while continuing its 22-year revival run. Keeping it fresh with new celebrities has kept the tourists and new generation of theater lovers filling seats in New York City and on the road ever since.

Step aside Sundance Worcester sets the scene for a 2013 film festival

orcester may not be known as a filmmaker’s mecca, but the city and surrounding areas have a flourishing movie scene that will be showcased over the next year. The cooperative group Future Focus Media has been providing urban youth with lessons in photography and videography. Out of this, came the idea to bring a film festival to Worcester. “We have an opportunity to teach kids about documentary filmmaking, movies, music videos, commercials; but there is nothing [to showcase the work] in Worcester,” explains founding member of the Central Mass Film Festival Dee Wells. If you look a little further outside of Worcester County, you can find film events taking place in Western Massachusetts, Boston, and Providence, R.I., but nothing in the heart of the commonwealth.

Leading up to the festival, which will take place next September, local filmmakers from Worcester County and beyond will be provided with an opportunity to highlight their featurelength and short films in a series of

screenings that will take place each month. Each screening will include discussions, and question-andanswer sessions with the filmmakers, and will strive to engage potential filmmakers and film viewers alike. “You aren’t just going to the theater, watching a movie and then walking away,” explains Kristen Lucas, a committee member of the film festival and producer of her company Goldilocks Productions. “Depending on what movie is shown, actors might be there, the director might be there, the crew might be there, and I think that personally, there are so many aspiring film makers

and video makers and story tellers that don’t know where to start, and when they get to talk to somebody who did it, it is another educational piece.” With the lack of a specialized film school in Worcester County, presenting the opportunity to speak with other filmmakers could provide aspiring filmmakers with the educational tools to develop their ideas and eventually see them unfold on the big screen. The Central Mass Film Festival’s first screening will be Saturday Oct. 20 at the Cantina Bar and Grill, 385 Main St., in Worcester and will feature “The Muse” written and directed by Rufus Chaffee. Chaffee’s passion for filmmaking began at a young age. “The Muse” is his second feature-length film. “I think any film festival is important because it gives filmmakers opportunity to show and promote their work. It’s great for Worcester because there are a lot of Worcester area filmmakers that can now not only show their films locally but also see other films and work, meet other

To have somebody else recognize you and tell you you’re good at something that you’ve worked so hard on and care so much about is always incredibly rewarding.” Monthly screenings, that will be free of charge, will lead up to the festival.

to play the QVCC all the time. Four Year Strong one time opened up a No Trigger show,” laughs Rheault at the idea of the now famous Worcester band opening for, well, anyone. RGIN BRITTANY DU The show on Friday will most likely be more of an aforementioned preparty than a typical performance with both bands and fans having grown up together in the local music scene. Smartbomb, also a Worcester band that has toured internationally for years now, will play as the last opening band before No Trigger takes the stage. Smartbomb members Billy Bean (guitar, vocals) and Eric Widing (vocals, guitar) played in No Trigger in the band’s early years. “They’re great, we still love them,” Rheault says of Bean and Widing. “Smartbomb is an awesome band; that’s why we asked

them to play the show.” Smartbomb also includes Jake Stevens (bass) and Erik Perkins (drums). Since No Trigger’s inception, the band has played all of Worcester’s hot spots (The Palladium upstairs and down, Club Oasis), as well as venues that are no longer (the Espresso bar and the QVCC). “We’ve played literally everywhere,” says Rheault. Then why, out of all the bars in Worcester, does the band choose Ralph’s to debut a new album and kick off weeks of touring? “Ralph’s gets it. It’s not a Green Street [bar]. Our type of music—fast, loud, aggressive music—fits at Ralph’s,” explains Rheault. “The fact that we’re from around here, go to Ralph’s all the time and book shows to play there—it just makes sense.” Go to the No Trigger/ Smartbomb show on Friday, Oct. 19, at Ralph’s Rock Diner, 148 Grove St. Tickets $8; doors open at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m.

• OCTOBER 18, 2012

Let’s consider the house the Florida couple is building. At 90,000 square feet it will be the largest single-family home in the country. The house will boast 30 bathrooms, 10 kitchens, an indoor ice-skating rink and $5 million worth of Chinese marble. The façade is modeled after the Palace of Versailles. Yes, the Siegels are wealthy. No crime in that. David Seigel owns the biggest time-share company in the United States, and, at 74, he’s amassed a fortune and married his trophy wife, Jackie, 43. He’s worth a billion or so, and is given to saying things like “A lot of people are better off for knowing me.” He claims to have gotten George W. Bush elected, but won’t divulge how because “it may not necessarily have been legal.” Thanks for that, buddy. Their existence is one of such wretched excess and raging narcissism that filmmaker Lauren Greenfield must have thought she’d been kissed by the gods when the Siegels agreed to be the subject of her documentary “The Queen of Versailles.” The central storyline was initially to be about the construction of their Orlando palace; but in the course of filming, the economy was rocked by the subprime mortgage scandal, and without “cheap money” at his disposal, David Siegel’s empire teetered on collapse. For the Siegels, the meltdown meant scaling back a gilded lifestyle that even most of the so-called one-percenters would find grossly ostentatious. As depicted onscreen, Jackie’s attempts at thrift are laughable. Here’s someone who confesses to a $1 million-a-year shopping habit suddenly forced to shop at Wal-Mart (though in truly compulsive fashion she fills an armada of shopping carts). Worst of all, the Siegels put their unfinished dream house on the market for $75 million. There are no takers. The film is fascinating, but I simply refuse to believe that some of the scenes aren’t as staged as a “Jersey Shore” bar fight. When down-on-her-luck Jackie rents a car at the airport and asks the dumfounded clerk the name of her driver,

you can practically hear the director coaching her to act as stupidly as possible. C’mon. The woman is a former IBM engineer for Christ’s sake. More honest are the interviews with the nannies, who do the real parenting in the Siegel household. In fact, perhaps the most unguarded moment in the entire film is when a nanny, donning a Rudolph the

Red-Nosed Reindeer costume for a Siegel Christmas party, sputters, “What a pain in the ass.” Another, in tears, notes that she hasn’t seen her own children in a decade (they live in the Philippines), but is happy with her living quarters — in the Siegel kids’ former playhouse. I read in a review somewhere that by the end of “The Queen of Versailles” the viewer actually feels some sympathy toward the Siegels. Nah. I don’t wish them ill, but is Jackie being candid, or is she truly this oblivious, when she says, “I thought the [government] bailout was supposed to be passed on to common people — like us”? Guess it doesn’t matter. “The Queen of Versailles” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, at 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, and at 1 and 2:50 p.m. on Sunday in the Jefferson Academic Center at Clark University as part of the Cinema 320 series.

Gordon Cook

STEVEN KING

Two minutes with...

Carl’s Oxford Diner is a landmark in Central Massachusetts. Large portions are one of the reasons why locals and out-of-staters alike keep coming back to Carl’s. Rhode Island resident Jen Mier, who chimed in during this Q&A, says she eats at Carl’s every time she’s in the area. Gordon Cook (his name is complete coincidence) has been one of the hands behind the overloaded plates of traditional breakfast and lunch food served at the diner for 19 years. Longtime Oxford resident, Cook says he can’t imagine working anywhere else. Cook stepped away from the grill to share what it’s like to be behind the counter at Carl’s Oxford Diner. What does a normal day at Carl’s involve? I get here at 5:30 a.m., light

the grills for the customers; we have our regulars at 6 a.m. It gets hectic. I tell jokes and fool around with the customers.

What’s your favorite thing to cook at Carl’s? The strawberry waffles with

whip cream. It looks good, it looks like dessert. Two Belgium waffles with whip cream, it’s this high (holds hand about a foot off the table).

What’s your favorite thing to eat at Carl’s? The strawberry waffles. It’s like dessert, it’s like a cake.

Is breakfast really the most important meal? Yes. It gets you going. Hopefully when [customers] leave here they’re full.

Any words for those who sleep in late and skip breakfast? Your loss! What’s one conversation from patrons that really caught your ear? The guy

that forgot his teeth. He ordered his breakfast, Colleen sat his meal down in front of him and he said, “I gotta

run home and get my teeth.” He had forgot his teeth. He came back, ate his breakfast and left.

Who’s the most memorable customer you’ve had? We’ve had Scott Brown, VB

(Doug Goudie) from Fox News twice; we had Edwin Rodriguez the other day - “La Bomba!” - Vince Wilfork from the Patriots, Jim McGovern. They’re just normal people [when they come in].

If you don’t finish your meal your take home box will read “big huge wimp” and you’ll get your fingernail painted, what’s this all about? It’s just a thing, you

know, Collen does it; she only does it to the men. You know, if you can’t finish, you’re like a woman. She writes “big huge wimp,” to just the men. See, she has one (points to a customer across the room with a take-home container), but it’s okay because she’s a woman. But if he does it (points to the man at the table with the woman), he’ll get it written on his. The woman with the take-home container explains: “He’s a mechanic so he doesn’t want his fingernail painted.”

The portions you serve are huge. Is comfort more important than health? Yes. Everybody loves comfort food.

Is being a cook at Carl’s comparable to any other job? No. It’s just awesome. I

mean to get to interact with my friends during the day, have fun with the customers and to see the reaction of the customers throughout the day with the huge portions.

What’s the story with the pink pig bus? We use it for advertisement; the local food bank uses it. They have a food drive twice a year called fill the pink pig. The local church St. Roch uses it when they do a food drive. Oxford food pantry uses it a lot too.

What makes Carl’s Oxford Diner stand out next to other diners? The people, the large portions, the laughter.

When you’re off the clock and Carl’s customers see you around town, what do they say? They say, “I’ll have a bacon,

egg and cheese sandwich,” “you make the biggest portions,” stuff like that. No matter where I go.

Anything else you want to say about working at Carl’s? I love my job, the

people, the people I work with. I get to wear shorts all year round.
