Victor Caube, a Long Beach sushi chef and resident of Echo Park, scored major clams this week when he bought a Lotto ticket at Echo Park Boulevard’s House of Spirits on Monday, only to realize that a ticket he’d previously purchased was drawn for a $15 million jackpot over the last weekend. An immigrant from The Philippines, Caube and an unnamed Lotto partner are now super-rich, no doubt following untold slogs-of-duty to and from work on the 710. The chef is considering taking his new found fortune back to the Philippines to start the sushi restaurant of his dreams. [The Eastsider L.A.]
