Homegirl Justy Dodge Makin’ ’em Smile in the Big Apple

Mrs. Goose’ close pal Justy Dodge has the Joke of the Week on Time Out New York. Who knows? Maybe the right person will crack a smile and who knows where that could lead in a city that has launched the careers of 10,000 entertainment icons?

I remember talking with Justy about leaving a few years back and she had a lot of people telling her to forget it and just stay and sling hash in a diner or something. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I also admire her pursuit of her dream and I thought I’d share this accomplishment however large or small it may be in the grand scheme of things I was glad to hear about it. It gave me a chuckle anyway.

Cool! When I was in NYC last month, at the Half King (a bar west of Chelsea), the server taking my order happened to be a young woman I knew here in Duluth years ago, she used to work at Chester Creek Cafe! She moved to NYC to follow her dreams. More power to your friend and to mine.
