NOTEBOOK

Curry egg salad, hold the Gleem, side of notebook

Joe Jr. was a diner with that extra-special flavor
By Ed Gold
One of the saddest moments on coming out of a hospital stay that lasted three months was seeing the “Store For Rent” sign at a vacant store at 12th St. and Sixth Ave. which had been occupied for more than three decades by Joe Jr. and run by the Hondros family, which turned the modest eatery into a Village institution.

Wit, wisdom and Harry: When style and substance join
By Rev. Donna Schaper 
H.M. “Harry” Koutoukas was as unlikely a person to have a pastor as they come. He was a cigarette-smoking, former serious drinker and drugger, who loved nothing more than a good A.A. meeting.
