The Real Man Behind Hell’s Kitchen

My boss is Mitch Omer, the owner of Hell’s Kitchen. He is well over six feet tall. He’s loud as, well, Hell. There is nothing about the man that screams, “I am a normal guy!” When he enters the building in the morning he walks past the server’s station,bangs on the glass and greets us all with a smile and the finger. Also, he is in love with Ralph Steadman, the artist. Steadman is the man most famous for his artwork of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

The artist signed Mitch’s arm one time and he went out and got that signature tattooed. We have, at the restaurant, original artwork from Steadman. Even our uniforms show a bit of his art:

That’s my co-worker Alek, posing for the website in his Pollack ‘fro.

The reason I chose to talk about Mitch today is because when he came into work today he was showing off his new cane. He got into an accident awhile back and I believe shattered his kneecap. Why one would choose to show off a cane was foreign to me, so I leaned in and eavesdropped on the conversation. This is what I heard:

“It’s made out of, get this…A BULL’S PENIS!”

Whoa. Wait, what did you say, dear man who signs my paychecks? He confirmed that I was not hallucinating. It was made out of a ding-a-ling from a barnyard animal. I didn’t ask how or why or what-the-heck. I don’t want to know the answer. I am sure PETA is going to find him and pour paint on him. But I had to get a picture.

Cheers to you Mitch, a great and most interesting boss!

    I too am a lover of Ralph Steadman, thanks to an ex-girlfriend.
    A bulls penis eh?
    wow, I’ve sat here for 5 minutes trying to think of something witty to say about a bull penis cane but I can’t so im just going to leave it at that.

    I am with you Josh there is not a witty remark that can be made about a bull’s penis cane.

    I wonder how he keeps it straight long enough to walk everywhere he needs to go.

  4. Billy says:

    I swear there are no quirky people within 50 miles from me. I have to seek them out, so I’m a little jealous.

    It’s nice to know they use every part of the bull. 😐

    You work at HK? Love that place. I was just there 10 days ago for breakfast with a group of people sitting in the back of the restaurant! Next time I’ll be watching for you.

    So I was watching an episode of House last night, and House was at some shop looking to buy a new cane, after seeing the selection he checks one out, Lo and behold the clerk mentions “Its a genuine bulls penis stretched over a metal rod”, well needless to say I found that to be quite the coincidence.

    And It looks like Im going to have to change the style of my blog again as it seems I’ve inadvertantly ripped off your’s.
    damn wordpress and their lousy selection.

    Ha! Thanks Josh. I was hoping for some sort of response proving that he was not full of it. Thanks.

    Yeah, I really wanted to come up with something to say too but….I got nothing. I mean, it’s a fricking cane made out of a bull’s johnson. That pretty much speaks for itself.

    JoshC, I’m giving some thought into changing my layout too. I don’t know that I’m entirely too happy with it mostly because it doesn’t enable everyone’s avatars to show up with they post comments (or at least I don’t know how to make that happen) and also the color of the text is way too muted. When I come to everyone else’s blogs who have black backgrounds, the words really show up in bright wite and orange text and looks nice. It seems like everything is kind of muted over at my place.

  9. Michael says:

    who thought of this idea? I mean seriously…who sits and thinks that making bull-penis-canes will be a viable business?

    Be scared, Cause I’m gonna regale you with some freaky-ass info.

    There are chew treats out on the market for Dogs, called Bully sticks.
    And they are smoked bull dong.

    Cash loves them.
