  • Howard Layfer says:

    We had fun watching fights at the Orleans, going out to eat (even if you had to park a mile from any other car). I also will never forget the horror on our servers face when you ordered your steak so well done that it had to be like shoe leather. I Their was only on Dick and he was always a great friend.
