second hump day together yeah we’re humping that doesn’t sound very good but well yeah well it’s better to help with somebody than the load it’s getting ready to slide into the weekend and we’re gonna be sliding into nice because yeah it’s gonna be very hot so what else what else is new uh it’s hot or very hot here in florida maybe maybe next week will you get even hotter well we don’t know we don’t everything is possible here we are in divine naples people live here only 12 hours yeah yeah where did you come up with that number well people are in aging here so they wake up nine and they go to sleep night oh yeah 12 hours can you count in air conditioning they don’t even go outside all day well they have car air conditioning they have house air conditioning a restaurant air conditioning problems getting from point a to point b well where are you going from the car into the restaurant exactly car to the mall they’re going quickly yeah yeah you know so that’s that’s the naples people retire here yeah and that’s why they’re happy and healthy a lot of people leave as soon as this hot weather comes yeah i just want to say you know it’s really nice to be here in hump day sitting here with words meter yeah what do you got something for me i got something for you i tell you what i was thinking just how to how to uh kind of show people oh no we cannot show them but you know how to share they were gonna be doing this on camera right so how to share over the over these waves your quality of uh writing quality oh yeah work yeah so what are we gonna do here i would like to uh read some of your work every single day we’re gonna read one menu item it was a collaboration i mean well let me just i mean i just came with some basic ideas but you know the not very good ones but that’s me but but the metal metal uh it should be which should be uh you know given is to you as long as you on your shoulders don’t try to pin it on my chest somebody has to be on a pedestal i tell you what now since you lost the weight you can you can beat it i won’t break it before it would be really hard to get you up there first we would need a forklift yeah forklift yeah or several people lifting there he goes with the fat jokes there’s never now of them remember what you do every day i told you you’re gonna pay for it yeah so let me just say name of the items on our menu some of them that you created gobble gobble in the garden gobble gobble in the garden yeah hamming it up honey mother clucker it’s my favorite it’s like a that’s a honey chicken sandwich yeah but it doesn’t know what someone explorer we’re gonna explain what that means and why but hold on just a second veggie on the bun they have veggie on the instead of veggie on the beach we should make a drink titled that yeah veggie no we have drink we’re gonna talk about them too vintage hammingway yeah he was famous for hanging out in southwest yeah beef it up right yeah is that a roast beef sandwich i can’t remember it’s been a while yeah arso italiano clucker mexami clucker mexico now there’s a italian one picante amiceto italiano tramazino i don’t think i uh came up with that name oh because i only speak one language i’m american remember i think i think i knew who came with that name yeah google google yeah we translated it oh that’s right well you came you kind of brainstormed that thing then we have a we have a sandwich called just beat it beat it from michael jackson yeah oh that’s a beet sandwich and the and the favor for ladies chipotle hard on oh the eyebrows must be get must get raised when we just lost poor girl looks across that menu what we just lost 50 of listeners yeah probably yeah well this is probably the closest we’ve gotten to an x -rated show well it’s not really i mean it’s like let me let me just say this this is our menu of sandwiches for lunch and uh coffee and divine coffee and uh wine bar yeah and every single menu item has a story which uh you know we thought it’d be really interesting to be different yeah we work really hard middle of the nights here and uh sometime until two o ‘clock in the morning because there was only time when we we had quiet uh you know nice um time that we can brainstorm and i tell you what some of the outcomes are just um just amazing yeah it was pretty funny actually we were walking around you know up and down the blocks fourth fifth sixth all around ep eighth or cross eighth and we would just brainstorm and bring a pencil and a paper and write things down and then come back and before put it together before i share at least one i would like to share one one menu item story every single day i got an idea yeah what is it why don’t you share one every day that’s a great idea yeah well go ahead how did you come up with that i don’t know i heard it from somebody genius yeah so before i do that i uh i want to remind you remember uh when we were sitting here and uh we were riding i was trying to be just like you so i i started wearing crocs you know i don’t remember that but yeah wow i would never be like you but at least on the on the feet you know talk i don’t want i don’t want to talk about those red shoes you’ve been wearing yeah and uh we were sitting behind uh behind table yeah and there was a guy coming it was two o ‘clock in the morning remember we were uh sitting and and uh i was facing the guy was coming two o ‘clock in the morning towards us we have music playing outside two computers i do remember that and uh i said to you hey watch him yeah and and you you did he stopped by our table and asked us question which was do you know what time it is well i look at him with my suspicious eye because who will ask this question in the morning last time i heard somebody ask me the question uh you know what time it is it was probably 25 years ago because everybody has a phone or watch right and uh so immediately you know the red light went on and he passed me by which you know i was out of my view and mad was keep eye on him and i just hear hey put it back put it back and i didn’t even know what he took i just jumped and i started running behind him yeah i didn’t know what he had i thought it was one of the red cups i thought too i thought he stole our uh julius minel a red cup that we served coffee in and silver platter with the triple filtrated water i just had to put it in yeah and and uh one of our customer was here one o ‘clock in the morning enjoying coffee and he left money on a table and the guy grabbed all the money yeah and i didn’t know that i started running behind him in my uh crocs which i didn’t have like very loose on my yeah he had flip -flops they weren’t and and i was running up to the thin city i couldn’t catch him yeah he dropped one of the 20s did yeah because i i started yelling at him i was shoot your ass how shoot your ass and and he dropped the money on the ground and when i picked it up i i kind of uh lost the distance but in the meantime i see all these blue and red lights all over in sirens because you call cops well you told me to yeah well so but of course you know we have very good relationship with the police because we’re taking care of them from since we opened but they started like six cars all around looking for me and they couldn’t find me so i had to go in 41 and i think next day they found a guy and yeah he never came back i wonder what happened i don’t know i think somebody explained it to him yeah this is not a good place to mess up with this guy so he had some exercise to work like in the morning yeah so that’s just the story of how hard we worked yeah we worked so hard we put a life in the line for this all right so what you did i didn’t chase the guy yeah you couldn’t because you would need a forklift to get out of the i was out of the chair i was the one with the gun yeah so let me just uh let me just read one of them all right picante amicetto italiano tra mazzoni trauma trauma oh let me try again picante amicetto italiano tra mezzino why did i pick this one i don’t know it’s hot right here is the explanation of the if you are female keep reading you may want this for lunch are you looking for something attractive spicy and most likely italian that is the answer hidden in this name name of the sandwich so google it ciabatta smeared with barbecue mayonnaise spicy italian salami pickle tomato and organic greens ladies we are hoping you get addicted and ask for more tomorrow by the way did we mention this is for females so why are dudes reading this no kidding it’s for all genders yeah so this is pretty good i wonder what the restaurant uh has something no i think it’s actually nice because when we talk about naples or just southwest florida we’ve of course have the website we have tons of stories in the history we want to hear and bring people in here to share about their business to their history of uh why they’re here in naples and and uh i think it’s pretty awesome to you know kind of just we used a lot of the material for for things that uh are associated with southwest florida and that would be like the hemingway sandwich i mean didn’t he hang out in the in in the keys yeah of course and even here too wasn’t mark twain here or so i don’t know but anyway i’m here right now that should be the most important they’re trying to find a way to get you out of here i’m gonna be hard i’m like a cockroach yeah they don’t go away very no no no that you have to although i’m having great i’m hoping that some of these we got what’s that iguanas i’m hoping that the lizard start i saw a lizard chase chasing a what do you call those palmetto bugs the other day oh so you want me be eaten by a lizard now no i didn’t say that but anyway but i digress dinosaurs then you know no our menu is very different we have a lot of european items in our coffee and wine bar for breakfast for uh lunch and also an evening the idea was just to bring the european flair here so people you know they don’t have to travel save some money and feel like they’re in europe just from the uh fifth avenue where they want to take a break for all the carnival barkers yeah carnival barkers are we those are the guys that stand out in front the restaurants trying to badger you i mean get you to come in tiger show starts at 8 p .m oh no we always made a fun of it they need to get some guys out there with some uh what are they jugglers it’s tough well if you cannot come to our coffee and wine bar uh then just let us know we deliver beach sos .com delivers to the beach over 250 items and and they are unofficial sponsors yeah they show right right so look for the red fire engine yeah the truck mini truck yeah the mini truck with the lights on i really don’t see how that thing could have been a fire engine in japan but anyway technically it is but anyway yeah you can’t miss it it’s got a big coffee cup on the roof you know it’s it’s people in people in japan are small you realize that right they’re maximum like five feet something the other day i told you they’re getting a little bit bigger since mcdonald’s and wendy’s and their diets changed that because they are here eating it right well i see them there too now they’re getting pretty chubby eating barbecue and mcdonald’s and fried foods and i am really happy we have that fire truck because it gets 100 it has 100 eyeballs and 75 people that see it want to take pictures yeah i think it’s great i i remember going down to the beach one day with you just take a little ride to show me what it was going to be like for somebody to be delivering and some guy just stopped you right going to the beach on the sidewalk and said hey stop and that guy ended up bordering about 200 worth of stuff the that day yeah so if you are on a beach don’t don’t want to lose the parking space let us know we bring you what we have available which is a lot of things yeah right yeah and uh with that we don’t want to forget to remind you we’re looking for people to interview in our podcast so send us email with some ideas who you know who you think we should have here info at divine naples dot com yeah
