Remember Me? The Cake Eater Edition

April 14, 2010

This week’s Remember Me? comes courtesy of Coach Bombay and the District 5 Ducks. God bless their cotton socks, they overcame adversity not once, not twice, but thrice! And do you think they could have done it without the Cake Eater? I THINK NOT.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then get your life together and rent installments 1, 2, and 3 of the classic trilogy The Mighty Ducks. Obviously on par with all the great trilogies, including Star Wars and The Godfather, The Mighty Ducks taught us years before Obama that YES, WE GODDAMN CAN. Sure, Emilio Estevez may have been the star, and yes, Joshua Jackson may have been the team captain, but friends, it was Adam Banks who truly stole the show….so much so that I actually had to look up his real name, because the character of Adam Banks is so ingrained upon my memory (much like Stanley Kowalski and Michael Coreleon) that the man behind the character becomes almost insignificant.

That, my friends, is what we in the biz like to call “sarcasm.” The Mighty Ducks is a terrible movie (which is precisely why I own two copies and watch it every week) but Adam Banks holds a special place in my heart for a very specific reason; mainly because when I lived in LA he used to serve me shots of whiskey with Stella chasers.

Yes, the mighty Adam Banks, once the star player of the Hawks and later a….cooperative member of the Ducks, is now a bartender at Hollywood’s Beauty Bar. Do not get me wrong, bartending is a noble profession and not one to thumb one’s nose at. I have great respect for Adam Banks (which is precisely why I will continue to call him Adam Banks instead of by his real name) and I hope that since 3FING3RS is so very widely read by young and old alike that perhaps this little piece of publicity will get him some fat tips come Happy Hour. This edition of Remember Me? is extremely special because not only are we reminding you of a star from the days of yore, but we are also telling you that you can find him at 1638 Cahuenga Blvd in Los Angeles, California nearly every night. We here at 3FING3RS do not condone stalking, but I can tell you from experience that ordering a drink from a former child star and then quacking at him as he gives you your change is quite possibly one of the most satisfying experiences one can ever have.

    Oh you know you love Vincent LaRusso, you big denial queen… you wouldn’t spend so much time stalking him if you didn’t… admit it… HAHA.

    I don’t particularly find this boy to be a stand-up guy or anything but to publicly post someone’s whereabouts, especially if it is their workplace, isn’t very nice, either. Blogs should be informative but this type of information has the potential to be very harmful. It doesn’t make you – a blogger/writer in search respect – look very appealing (read: read-worthy). Give your mother something to be proud of, eh?

      He works at a bar, not a hospital. And he happens to tell everyone who he is, so trust me, not much to be concerned about. This blog was an attempt at humor, not at providing information. Relax.
