I made a stop today to see Joe and John. As soon as I walked in the door, Joe said, "your last visit was October 12, 2009". What a memory. Not much has changed at CPR, which is good. Mealies were spot on delicious! I had a Newbie with me and he even took four to go.
But I do smell trouble on the horizon. Lately the upper management from all around the country, of a famous and growing restaurant chain have been frequenting Charlie's Pool Room on a regular basis
Joe...John, if you decided to sell, give us a heads up so we can get in on the ground floor(CHA-CHING!)
One important note....we have a new champion! "Mark "Mongo" Ankudovich ate 20 hot dogs with sauce at Charlie's Pool Room In Alpha NJ, In one hour and 27 minutes. beating the 2005 record with three more hot dogs in six fewer minutes."
The CPR sketch artist was on hand for Mongo's Official Wall Poster.
And in honor of the new "Champ", Joe and John broke out the posters of past champions.
Joe and John told me to say hello to BuffetBuster
(it's been too long), Coney Island Lou
(twice in one week?), John Fox
(wishing you could eat onions) and Benzee
(did you sleep in?)
The official picture of two of the nicest guys in the world.
And John is a heck of a guy also
