"Gus" Haris, the original owner of the Woodside deli, died recently. His obituary is in today's Post. I never knew until I read the piece about the battle over the Ladies Night at the deli and how Haris tried to circumvent a ruling by the Montgomery County Human Rights Commission by having a "Skirt and Gown Night." Love the mental image of men in skirts and dresses heading up Georgia Avenue for half-priced pastrami!
I had always wondered where all of the wonderful memorabilia on the walls came from. Seems that Haris, a history buff, collected it.
For those interested in a slice of local history, the obituary is very interesting. (The obit just above it, about the American paratrooper who faught for the U.S. and the USSR, is also fascinating).
