  1. I worked at Shalimar in the late 90’s. Some of the very best people I’ve ever met let alone worked for. One night around close I went upstairs to where we serve our lunch buffet, it was very dark. While rinsing a coffee pot with lemon, ice water and vinegar, I heard a low moaning sound that scared the shit out of me. I looked into the room where it came from and saw a man in a blue turban who looked like he was levitating! I ran downstairs so scared and told the kitchen what I saw only to be laughed as Har Dave, the new dishwasher they flew in from Texas.
