I served food to Ken Daneyko!

17 posts in this topic

I work at the Friday's in Roxbury. Friday night, 6 PM, starting to get busy. There's a swarm of people around the kitchen pulling orders, so the first one I see I pull and bring it out to a table.

As I was walking, I realize I've seen the guy at the table before. I get a little closer, and he has an NHL hat on (with a little french saying on the side).

It's KEN DANEYKO

I stop at the table, and kind of just stare in awe for a few seconds. I give his wife her salad, and I give him the ribs/shrimp combo he ordered. I didn't say anything, because I've met him a couple times and taken a picture or two, and on a busy night in a restaurant, I'm sure that's the last place he wanted to be noticed. I sort of regret that, but I would've regretted starting a huge chain of autograph seekers more.

I thought it was a really cool experience

You should have been like "SIR THIS SALAD IS A REGULAR POWER PLAY OF TASTE" and "DO YOU NEED THE PLUS MINUS OF YOUR DRINK IMPROVED"

You could have at least thanked him for helping us get three stanley cups. Also what did he get to drink? I hope it was a soda or a water.

I see Dano out in Morristown a lot. I got to chat with him once and he mentioned he lives in the Mendham/Chester area, so I guess he moved.
