A Blast from Cagney's Past

Here's a blast from Cagney's past.
Sitting in Flamingo Grill for dinner is Mark Karavan, Sally Smith, and Cathy Hendrix.

40 years ago I was lucky enough to talk these three kids into working at a new Myrtle Beach joint called Cagney's Old Place. Sally served the first customer who ever walked into Cagney's. They all worked through College and a few years after.
They were so damn customer-good I tried to make then restaurant people but they went on to do other stuff. One became a Cardiologist, one is a dedicated teacher and the other is an Attorney. Thanks for the memories.

Comment from Banana Jack Murphey.

It's been a couple years now since the last days of Cagney's. Here below is a much appreciated  comment from Banana Jack Murphey.


"I'll miss Cagney's because it oozes history. You could write a book filled with stories on the origin and history of all the artifacts in that place. Cagney's to me was a museum with some mighty tasty vittles.For so many patrons it's going to feel like the lost of a loved one".   Banana Jack
