On Mary Mahoney’s 50th anniversary

Comments on the 50th anniversary of Mary Mahoney’s Old French House Restaurant:

Thank all of you for being here and for inviting me to speak to you.

Mary Mahoney’s is a Biloxi tradition.

I can’t say enough about what the Mahoney and Cvitanovich families and the staff have done as goodwill ambassadors for Biloxi and the Gulf Coast.

You are as Biloxi as Barq’s Root Beer and boiled shrimp.

I wish you many more years of success, and I hope Bobby finds a few new jokes for the next 50 years.

God bless all of you, and may Andrew, Mary and Bob rest in peace.
