South Florida's independent
source of local news and culture
Hometown: College Park, Maryland; Weymouth, Massachusetts
Claim to fame: Co-owners of Hamburger Mary's Fort Lauderdale, a premier hangout in Wilton Manors for the gay community.
What they've done for us lately: The restaurant, which opened in 2002, seats 225 but regularly has a wait.
What it takes: "A tremendous amount of teamwork, all different backgrounds and age groups. We have a great mix of gay and straight, old, and young. We both work 60 to 70 hours a week. We try to make a lot of changes. It takes a lot of patience. The most fun thing we've done was a Hamburger Mary look-alike contest... She really is a trashier Dolly Parton... Dolly out of a trailer park."
