Grunch Time

grunch5%3A28.jpegBenny Grunch, legendary singer known for the "Twelve Y'ats of Christmas" and "Ain't Dere No More," tells Emily Hingle about his first restaurant experience in his hometown, New Orleans: "The Walgreens lunch counter was the first restaurant I went to by myself and paid for my own food. I was eight and took the streetcar downtown to meet my mother. I bought a tuna salad sandwich and Coca-Cola. The whole thing with tax came to thirty-seven cents." Grunch is also a Bud's Broiler fan.
