"My name is Michael C---,and I have been doing family research and have come to learn my grand-uncle was somewhat of a fixture at your family's restaurant (Kings Hwy). His name was Louis (or Lloyd) but was known to everyone around as "The Goose". What I have heard from multiple sources is that he was always at your family's restaurant and people would come there to meet him, seeking favors and/or money. This side of my family has been a blackhole to me, and while I have made some strides, there is still so much about some of these people I don't know. With The Goose in particular, given his "occupation", I have to get creative in trying to gather information. I was wondering if there was any chance you may have heard any family stories or anything else about him. There was a Mel L. who was an associate of his that also hung around there. Anything you may be willing to share would be greatly helpful and immensely appreciated! Thank you for your time.Respectfully, Michael Cohen"
Can anyone help Mr. Cohen out? Anyone heard about "The Goose" - a regular at the King's Highway Dubrow's?

Hello Dubrow's cafeteria fans! I've recently joined the website Megilla which makes it easy to record oral history. I would love to use it to collect stories from people who enjoyed Dubrow's as a customer or who worked there!
If you're willing, drop me an email and I'll send you a question to answer. The website should then prompt you on how to record your story.

"Can you help me with a series of articles I am writing on cafeterias for a facebook page geared to people who appreciate and collect restaurant china.
I am working on a post about Dubrow’s, based mostly on your blog spot information. The cafeterias I am writing about used china that was crested for them with ,usually , their trademarks. I went through your blog and found a couple of photos showing china (1940 crew photo & A. Harriman in 1950’s). The 40’s photo has design border on the cups, and the 50’s photo seems to just have a dark line band. One of the posts on your blog mentions silver flatware that is crested, and I found a tray on WorthPoint with “Dubrow”s” marking. So far I have found no “Dubrow’s” crested china.
My question is - do you know of any china that was crested for Dubrow’s?"
Anyone able to help Larry Paul out? Comment on this post!

"I remember thinking I was all grown up when they gave me my own little card.
Before that, I just got stuff on my parent’s card.
I loved the water fountain. Even if I wasn’t thirsty, I’d get 4 or 5 glasses of water.
My friends and I used to go late at night and joke about “where is the next generation of derelicts hanging out at Dubrow’s coming from?”
Then my cousin walked in with his friends. I was really sad when it closed. My mom took me to see JFK talk, it was really exciting. I was 8, didn’t understand, but it was exciting.
It was a really fun fun place to eat. Sam (Sammy in Brooklyn)"
Thanks for sharing, Sammy! I love hearing from people who remember Dubrow's.
