Andy Gulvezan is Back
He's building up the Full Moon's legendary beer menu, too. Back in the glory days he had 110 beers on the menu, but he won't carry that many this time around, and his reason is strictly whimsical. "I'm going to carry ninety-nine and have the [waitstaff] sing to you, 'Would you like one of our ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall?'" There are other changes in the works, including charity poker if The Powers That Be in Lansing prove willing. Gulvezan hopes to kick that off this fall.
Then he remembers one other date--the year he opened his first restaurant, the long gone and much beloved Whiffletree on West Huron. "That was 1972," says Gulvezan. Which reminds him of another change at the new Full Moon that should have fans of the Whiffletree salivating: "Say that Andy's original Whiffletree Fries are back on the menu."
