  1. I’ll miss Charlie. I was pregnant with my second child in 1975 and ate at Charlie’s 6th Street restaurant every day (your article says the restaurant opened in ’78). There was always a line out the door. Charlie would wave me in to the front of the line and his son, 16 year old George, would bring me a salad and glass of milk. Every day. That was the beginning of our relationship.
