THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Chuck Muer

FROM A WEST BLOOM-
FIELD paper boy . . . with
about 20 customers in the area
. . . and three more along a very
sparse tract of field now called
Northwestern Highway . . . an
8-year-old boy named Ken
Walter picked apples in what is
now Bloomfield Charley's park-
ing lot on W. Maple and Or-
chard Lake Rd.
Tbday, the handsome 36-year-
old eligible bachelor now co-
owns that parking lot . . . and
its restaurant.
He and partner Dick Sikor-
ski, owners of Panache in Bir-
mingham, and in
Southfield, take over in October
. . . with the same wonderful
tradition continued by Ken's ex-
boss, Chuck Muer.
1974 to 1976, Ken was food
and beverage manager and
resident manager at Stouffer's
Northland Inn . . . before
becoming general manager of
Chuck's first "Charley's"
operation, Northville Charley's
. . . then general manager of his
Bloomfield Charley's and on to
the corporate offices of C.A.
Muer, Inc.
When Ken joined Chuck,
there were only seven places .. .
On his leaving, a year-and-a-
half later, there were 33!
41-year-old Dick Sikorski,
"the man behind the scenes" so
to speak, started with Cigna In-
surance 17 years ago . . . and to-
day is its executive vice presi-
dent . . . Plus his interests in
Panache and Rikki's . . . and
soon-to-be co-owner of Bloom-
field Charley's, Southfield
Charley's, Northville Charley's,
Fairlane Charley's in Dear-
born, Eastside Charley's in
Harper Woods, Uptown
Charley's in Madison Heights,
Charley's in Livonia, Digger's
in Farmington, Meriwether's in
Southfield, and Chuck Muer's
Roadhouse in Toledo . . . Dick
has other restaurant interests
. . . He is also partner with
Norm LePage, Tbny Brown and
Eric Lutz in the Eaton Street
Station in Birmingham . . .
Dick and Jack Cochran of Beau
Jack's, bought Maverick's on
Woodward in Royal Oak . . .
with Jack selling his part to
make Dick its sole owner.

There will be no major
changes in either management
or employment, says Ken .. .
His ambitions are for the places
to go back to "the old days" of
good service . . . something
which Chuck himself was
always a stickler for.
The training program in-
troduced by Chuck is widely us-
ed now . . . and many of the peo-
ple who worked for him have
restaurants of their own .. .
making use of his knowledge.
Date for changeover from
Chuck Muer to Ken Walter and
Dick Sikorski depends on li-
quor license transfers, but
should be sometime in October.
Rights here to the Chowder
and Marching Society are also
being purchased by them .. .
but will be honored at all
Chuck Muer Restaurants . . . so
those of you who have them can
stop your wondering.
Putting it in a nutshell, the
main reasons why Chuck is
selling after building an "em-
pire" is to devote more time to
a smaller group of dining places
. . . and his new venture,
customized computer software
and information services for the
restaurant industry . . .. for
which he has developed an in-
house software planning setup.
Places he will keep are
Wayne Charley's, Gandy
Dancer in Ann Arbor, Charley's
Crab at the Northfield Hilton,
River Crab in St. Clair . . . plus
restaurants in Washington,
D.C., Ohio (he has them in
Dayton, Cleveland and Colum-
bus), Pittsburgh, Grand Rapids,
and Florida . . . Plus these,

Ken Walter

Chuck is opening two more top
dining spots . . . in Boynton,
Fla., an absolutely elegant one
next spring which will be call-
ed Jubilee . . . and in Jupiter,
Fla. this November . . . being
opened by Paulette and Randy
Winn, his popular managers
here at Charley's Crab who are
moving there.
Community involvement was
also always a big thing with
Chuck in yesteryears . . .
Perhaps now there will be more
time for him . . . and for certain
you can depend on Ken and
Dick.

No, this certainly isn't the
end of an era simply because
Chuck Muer sold one of his
divisions . . . You might call it
the beginning of a new one.
And the best part of this
whole shebang is that the three
guys are friends . . . willing to
help each other at the drop of
the slightest hint . . . which in
all reality is what true friend-
ship is all about.
IT ISN'T A FALSE reaction
that whenever Leah Marks
puts on a fashion show, it seems
to be better than the last one
. . . This is fact . . . supported by
many attendees. •
Her latest for the Adat
Shalom Synagogue Sisterhood
was a dandy . . . in celebration
of Israel's Independence . . .
Logos of the stores who par-
ticipated plus those who gave
assistance were flashed on a
screen . . . Naomi's, More
Woman, D.O.C. Optique, Tap-
per's Jewelry, Tamara Institute
de Beaute, Mariomax Salon... .
as the Fantasy of Fashion for
Adat Shalom Sisterhood's
Spring Donor Day began.
Four dancers doing the Hora
and another Israeli terpsi gala
were members of self-
supporting Hora Aviv Israeli
folk dance group . . : which all
told has 14 members and is the
only Israeli dance troupe per-
forming in the Detroit area .. .
They get calls galore to attend
festivals with Judaism attach-
ment . . . Couldn't go to Spain
in spring because of little funds
. . . They also do all interna-
tional dancing, Greek, Italian,
Polish, etc. . . Avri Chen can be
reached at 967-2225, or call
Shelly Jackier at 661-1948.
Then a dancer in mask did
some masterful footwork as he
accompanied models from the
stage along a wide and large
runway . . . Truly a shown as
unfolding! . . . Another Leah
Marks Production! . . . Shirley
Becker told of the stores and
styles . . . and a steady flow of
models, regulars and new .. .
18 in all, so chic and with such
stature . . . slitherly walked the
runway . . . as did the cute
youngsters of Leslie and Pam
Salba, sisterhood president,
daughter Leslie and son Ben.

The lighting was superb .. .
as sculptured slides were clever-
ly shown on the white
backdrops . . . while a wonder-
ful beat of music did its thing
. . . This is important . . . not to
have outlandish disco music
that takes away from showing
of fashions and the day's
presentation.
It was a gorgeous day outside
. . . as over 400 attended the 25
boutiques and enjoyed the
always fine luncheon prepared
by Sarah, Al and son Jeffrey
Rosenberg . . . chicken — not
dry, moist and tasty without
sauce — crisp salad and fresh
melon.
At my table were Steve Tap-
per, Ron Lippa, Bernard and
Shirley Williams of Leeds,
