Yanks fans have Mickey Mantle’s off of Central Park, and now Mets fans will have Strawberry’s Sports Grill in Douglaston, Queens! A Craigslist ad seeks a GM for “Darryl Strawberry’s new restaurant,” which will be called Strawberry’s Sports Grill.
The Straw Man, who currently lives in Missouri, couldn’t hack it on Celebrity Apprentice, but the former slugger-drugger seems confident that he can become the city’s most prominent athlete-restaurateur since footballer Amos Zereoue. After all, the ad promises “the highest quality food” and “exceptional customer service.” Chances that a “Chocolate Strawberry” blender drink will be served: VERY HIGH. Chances that customers will chant “Daa-ryl, Daa-ryl” when the owner walks in: ALSO VERY HIGH.
