The place is called Skosh Monahans. It's owned by Gary Monahan, the former Mayor of Costa Mesa.
We were seated and the waitress took our order. I kept seeing this scruffy looking guy cruise around to all of the tables and talking. I wasn't sure who he was. Turns out....that was Gary Monahan! He likes to greet all of his guests, get to know them a little bit and make sure that everything is okay with their meal.
After we got our food, our waitress came by and told us to tell the owner that our waitress was pretty slow today and that she needed a shot. Gary didn't come by, so we didn't have a chance to ask him. Our waitress was very persistant though. About 15 minutes later, she reminded us that she still didn't have her shot!
Cuong finally stopped Gary as he was walking by. We told him that she was kind of sluggish and she needed a shot. Gary's response was, "Oh, I'm sorry. She just finished working an 8 hour shift at her other job. I'm sure she's pretty tired." At that point, I thought we got her in trouble, so I felt all bad.
About 5 mintues later, Gary and our waitress walk up with FOUR shots! Apparently if you tell him your waitress is sluggish, everyone gets shots! Bottoms up! I think it was a double shot of Cactus Cooler. It REALLY did taste like Cactus Cooler! Not bad!!
Right after that I thought, "Darn! I should have brought my camera! We just took a shot with Gary Monahan!"
Of course we tipped Jenny a little extra, since our shots were free. Those are the kinds of things that make you want to go back! :)
