ALL-STAR CAFE OPENING GETS HOLLYWOOD PREMIERE TREATMENT
Published December 20, 1995
"Entertainment Tonight" profiled the Grand Opening of the All-Star Cafe in Times Square. Shown going into the Hollywood- style premiere were CINDY CRAWFORD, SUGAR RAY LEONARD, JOHN STAMOS, EVANDER HOLYFIELD, WHOOPI GOLDBERG and DONALD TRUMP. The partners: WAYNE GRETZKY, SHAQUILLE O'NEAL, KEN GRIFFEY JR., JOE MONTANA, MONICA SELES and ANDRE AGASSI (with BROOKE SHIELDS). "ET's" Pat O'Brien questioned Joe Montana, on his ravioli. Montana: "They're the best around." Shaq was shown working in the kitchen, displaying his "special" turkey sandwich ("Little bit of mayonnaise. Nice and neat."), and giving a tour of his favorite memorabilia in the Cafe -- the basket he broke his rookie season and Agassi's ponytail after he cut it off. O'Brien: "Well, you can take your pick of sports metaphors. You can call it a 'Slam Dunk' ... 'Game, Set and Match' ... 'He shoots and scores!' Whatever you want to say, this place looks like a real winner" ("ET," 12/20).
