MEET ME AT PARKY'S & YOU BET YOUR LIFE


Greek restaurateurs have their say on this episode of “Presenting the Transcription Feature.” We start off with a fictional one, the loveable Parky of “Meet Me at Parky’s.” A famous food critic is coming to his restaurant, and Parky is desperate for a good write-up. So desperate that he looks for help from con-man Orville Sharpe, the only person of Parky’s acquaintance with more of a talent for malapropisms than he. Then, on “You Bet Your Life,” Groucho Marx welcomes an actual Greek restaurateur. Other contestants include a Las Vegas masseur and a real-life “Rosie the Riveter.”
