Fred: Grady, where is all the action?
Grady: Fred, if I knew where all the action was I wouldn't be sitting here with you.
Avatar 1:16pm kyle a.:

Hey Kyle - in terms of grub, or hijinx? Weather is supposed to be nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm Cooh John:

@ kyle a.: I was in NYC for the marathon and stumbled upon Ellen's Satardust Diner. "Multi-level '50s-themed diner with singing servers & an extensive menu of American classics"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Greg from ZONE 5:

@kyle: Great Jones Cafe is the best (and most FMU-friendly) restaurant in the city. Also check out The Highline since it's pretty and free.
  1:32pm JakeGould:

Grady! Everyone loves Grady’s “Wild Parsley Salad!”
Avatar 1:35pm kyle a.:

thanks for the advice everyone! some nice food options on the list now. yeah, hows about some hijinx and tom foolery things?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm common:

My dad grew up next door to soupy and his sons. Tin machine. So he told me.

Uncle Grady Sanford

I thought he was Fred's brother
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Texted my TV guru. He says Sophia from Golden Girls was also on Golden Palace, Empty Nest and Nurses.
Avatar 1:42pm Joe B:

Theodore Wilson of Sanford Arms etc made a soul record that was pretty good. can't recall the group name though
Avatar 1:42pm BEAVO:

Aunt Esther was the best.
Avatar 1:43pm Joe B:

great jones update - WAS the best. management shakeup, the decline is fast and steep
  1:43pm Joe R.:

Richard Belzer played Det. Munch in a lot of shows but a mix of regular and cameos I think

Avatar 1:44pm Joe B:

Kyle, saturday night the tomfoolery will all be happening at music hall of williamsburg at the billy miller memorial show. that will be the place to be
Avatar 1:44pm BEAVO:

Soupy's sons played in Tin Machine with Bowie also Todd Rundgren's early stuff
  1:45pm Hackensack Slim:

The can't miss show of the weekend is the Billy Miller tribute show Saturday night. Not far from the Record Fair.
Avatar 1:45pm BEAVO:

Hunt Sales and the other one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Greg from ZONE 5:

@Joe: Say it ain't so!
  1:45pm Joe R.:

...but we all agree that Grady was the best - good goobly goo!
Avatar 1:46pm kyle a.:

many thanks, gang! i'll be there!
Avatar 1:47pm BEAVO:

Pearl River, Slidell, Houma! Stand on UP!
  1:48pm JakeGould:

@BEAVO: Yeah, but Aunt Esther was so ugly… You hear that Elizabeth? You had an ugly sibling.
Avatar 1:48pm BEAVO:

I feel the BIG one comin' on!
Avatar 1:48pm BEAVO:

Elizabeth! I'm coming to join ya honey
  1:49pm JakeGould:

Elizabeth must have been beautiful… At least in her soul to have been in a relationship with Fred Sanford.
Avatar 1:49pm BEAVO:

That woman was as pure as the driven snow, and I'm the only driver she ever had!
  1:51pm JakeGould:

@JoeB: “Great Jones Cafe” is closing?
Avatar 1:53pm BEAVO:

Lamont was named "Lamont Grady Sanford
  1:53pm JakeGould:

Here is Lamont and Rollo talking about the wild parsley growing in Grady’s community garden. youtu.be...
Avatar 1:54pm Joe B:

  1:54pm JakeGould:

@JoeB: So same shell, different soul, right?
Avatar 1:55pm BEAVO:

Based on an old British show called Steptoe and Son. Didn't know that.
Avatar 1:56pm Joe B:

more like lack of a soul

@Jake, Classic!

Avatar 1:58pm Joe B:

Theodore Wilson of Sanford Arms and other great failed sitcoms - his record was Teddy and the Counts - The Heart Is But So Strong, it's on the youtubes and worth checking out
  1:58pm JakeGould:

@JoeB: Seems to be a trend. Did you hear about the Elliot Smith themed “gastropub” in L.A. Not a joke. laist.com...
Avatar 1:59pm amira:

Nobody wants a jukebox, right? They need extra room for four more valued patrons.

I have a 1986 LP of unreleased Larry Williams on Specialty (SP 2158). It has the alt Oh Baby tune if you want to ditch your jive CD format , REX !

Sanford & Son was a weekly favorite of mine when I lived in Philly in 1973
