I wouldn't even know who this dude was if it wasn't for allanh, who I hope is going to take the time to go check out his restaurant with the next Convention. I know I'd want to. He was the one I was voting for 'cause I thought he had the most "Stage Presence" and would be the best on the Babble Box.
