SF diner honors the 100th birthday of TV's First Lady of Comedy, Lucille Ball
The exhibition will mark what would have been Lucille Ball's 100th birthday. Miss Ball was born Lucille Desiree Ball on August 6, 1911, in Celeron/Jamestown, New York. A century has passed since her birth and Lucy remains a household word and the undisputable Queen of TV Comedy. Lori's Diner is planning an all-day salute to the famous redhead which will include a free hamburger for all people named Lucy (with proof of picture I.D.) and free Cokes and coffee all day long at the Sutter Street Lori's Diner! Whoever dresses like Lucille Ball or Desi Arnaz on August 6th and comes to the diner on Sutter Street will receive a free hamburger, fries and Coke for an entire week! There will be a prize for the best-dressed Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
President/CEO of Lori's Diner, Mr. Man J. Kim, who is known for his love of nostalgia, film and TV, said "we are thrilled to honor the great Lucille Ball...one of television's pioneers and an unforgettable talent. We ALL Love Lucy."
The exhibit will run through mid-November 2011. This presentation will replace the Elizabeth Taylor display which has garnered much attention since its installation in April shortly after the she passed away.
