Tuesday’s Lunch With An Old Chicago Copper In Burbank, CA
Burbank, CA—My friends former Chicago police sergeant, Andy Murcia and his wife, the lovely star of stage, screen and television, Ann Jillian took me out to lunch today.
Andy met Ann in the late 1970’s when he was working as a part-time house dick at the Ambassador East Hotel in Chicago. Ann was appearing in a show and stopped by the Buttery there afterwards. Sparks flew and Andy went on a wild ride with Ann ever since.
They took me to the incredibly popular Porto’s Café and Bakery. This was my first experience at this place and proved to be a real treat. Thanks Ann and Andy for being dear friends!
