A Tale From The Roosevelt Island Trellis Diner Bar - Patton, FDR, Pearl Harbor, Jeopardy, Loons And A Pretty Woman All In 60 Seconds


 A funny Trellis Diner story from Roosevelt Island resident Sarah Lynn Michener:
"PATTON! DON'T SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT PATTON HE WON THE WAR!" - Drunkard #1 to Drunkard #2

"You know I am gonna get shit for this but I really think FDR knew about Pearl Harbor" - Drunkard #3 to Drunkard #4.

"I'm leaving! I know better than to stay past Jeopardy! Look at this young lady who has to put up with you LOONS! Goodbye young lady. It's always nice to see a beautiful feminine presence in this godforsaken place." - drunkard #4

All in the space of 60 seconds at the only diner on Roosevelt Island, where Michener thought she'd drink coffee and get some work done.
Just another night at the Trellis.

This is either fiction or outdated -- 60 seconds have not recently passed at the Trellis bar without mention of the Trayvon Martin case. [Of course, my guess is outdated as opposed to fiction...] But please be sure to update us when a sober person pays you such a compliment! ;D

Has trellis been renovated yet? I remember mr.k talking about renovation since I was there! Such a nice man, his on too. Is the older gentleman still there who use to take the register sometimes? The older Greek man.
