Reply to "Gilbert Stafford, A Lion at the Club Door"

Last night when I went in to work (DJing at VANDAM @ Greenhouse) the two upstairs bartenders asked me if I had heard about Gilbert.
Now these guys are children. (I consider anyone younger that the clothes that I'm wearing a child).
How could they possibly know who Gilbert was?
But they did.
They were doing (the now oblig...atory) Gilbert imitations and reciting Gilbert's most famous quotes.
Then security came over. Then our own door girl Andrea. Then more people.
"Are you guys talking about Gilbert"?
It seemed everyone in the club knew Gilbert.
The boys poured a glass of Maker's Mark and set it on the bar and we toasted Gil.
The glass sat there all night in homage to The King of New York.
God Save The Queen.
