inside, the seating is cramped and
uncomfortable, and the walls are
unadorned except for the posted menu
and the glimmering metal of the stove
behind the lunch counter. In warmer sea-
sons, seating is available on the shaded
patio out front, but during the winter it is
best to either stand patiently until one of
the tables is free, or be on your way.
The fare, on the whole, is not intrinsic
to the Fleetwood's success. Unlimited

hours, and an environment both austere
and seedy, is what draws the clientele.
The Hippy Hash, a flavorful mixture of
hash browns and vegetables, is an excep-
tion to this rule, and remains one of the
most rewarding and inexpensive fried
dishes available in the city.
Indeed, when asked to share his
thoughts on the Fleetwood, one student
thought first of incidents and crowd,
rather than the food.
LSA fifth-year senior Rich
Goodloski reminisced of a certain
Wednesday night, some time ago. "My
friends were here' from out of town,
Arizona and East Lansing, and three

guys came up and started rubbing our
shoulders. I took it as part of the
Fleetwood experience, but my friend
wanted to fight them," Goodloski said.
Perhaps a free massage does not come
with every meal, but LSA sophomore
Elizabeth Moore argues otherwise. "This
one guy who looked like Telly, from (the
film) 'Kids,' spilled his water on my skirt
and tried to wipe it off with his hands."
Unlike Goodloski's friend, who
restrained himself, Moore says that her
boyfriend wrestled the would-be masseur
to the ground later that same week.
For the weak of heart, or sensitive to
touch. Mr. Greek's Coney Island pro-
vides gentler environs. Soft green and
red brick walls surround a long stretch
of booths and tables. On one wall is a
giant Mr. Greek's logo, along the other is
aseries ofkitschy photographs of classi-
cal sculpture. There is nothing ribald
about the photographs, however, since
each is adorned with colorful neon high-
lights, which conceal, among other
things, the genitalia of Poseidon and
Zeus. On the whole, Mr. Greek's atmos-
phere is clean, cheerful and inviting.
George Costos, co-owner of Mr.
Greek's, said that on weekends it fills up
after the bars close. Coney dogs and their
"anytime" breakfast features are the most
popular late-night items, he said, and
added that they are an excellent, filling
way to cap off a night of strong drnk. t
Its a pretty mellow crowd," Cos
noted. "The service is pretty quick and a

chance trouble does arise, an officer or
two will always be around to restore order.
Security and decor aside, Mr. Greek's
offers some of the best and cheapest
food among the late-night venues. They
sell a variety of coney dogs and ham-
burgers, but more traditional Greek fare
is alsoava ilble . r o s u f e gr ae

Cook Halit Methasani and customer Eliza Robert joke around at the Fletwo

And speaking of rice pudding, one of
the few other restaurants that serves the

Haksto star in WWI drama

VAfter a brief hiatus from being
everyone's favorite leading man, Tom
Hanks will return to the screen next year
in the World War II drama, "Saving
Private Ryan," according to Variety.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film
follows an officer's attempt to, well, save
Private Ryan. Also on board is irish-
Catholic leading man Edward Burns of
"The Brothers McMullen" fame. No
word on whether he will also help save
Private Ryan. -
V/ It had to be blue - the pregnancy
test, that is. Actor and full-time jazzy
guy Harry Connick Jr. will become a
father for the second time come this
September. Connick's wife, model Jill
Goodacre-Connick, let the news slip
on Tuesday's episode of "The Oprah
Win frey Show." Goodacre-Conn ick
said, "It must be something in the
water," since their daughter was just
born last fall.
V/ Don't hate him because he's
paing counless vrillains and acton
heroes, wants the world to know his
true range as an actor. Classically
trained at the prestigious Juilliard
Academy, Rhames favors Shakespeare
and C hekov, but he always seems to get
cornered by the likes of Quentin
Tarantino and Demi Moore. The cur-

V The results of Feb. 24th's Brit
Awards were interesting to say the least.
Not surprisingly, the always under-
dressed Spice Girls won for Best
British Video for the song "Say You'll
Be There," as well as the Best British
Single award for their smash
"Wannabe," which has crested the
charts in more than 30 countries. Their
obnoxiously perky theory of "girl
power" won the day, prompting them to
assure their fans, "We are proff you can
win with a little help from girl power."
The lately reclusive George Michael
cemented his reputation as the ultimate
comeback kid with a Best British Male
Solo Artist nod, and, in a related story,
the equally reclusive guy who used to
call himself Prince made a rare British
appearance to sing the song
The Manic Street Preachers, whose
28-year-old rhythm guitarist and lyri-

cist, Richey Edwards, has been missing
and presumed dead since 1995, took
home the two biggies with Best British
Group and Best British Album for their
first post-Edwards effort, "Everything
Must Go."
Tantric rockers Kula Shaker won for
Best British Newcomer, Prodigy
snagged Best British Dance Act, the
Fugees won the Best International
Group award and Beck took home the
Best International Male accolade.
Sheryl Crow, who remade herself into
a smudgy mascara brooder for her
sophomore album, tempered her Best
International Female award with the
quip: "I want to thank the Spice Girls
for not being in my category." And,
finally, in keeping with what can now
rightfully be called "The Year of the
Bee Gee," that toothy disco brother act
took home the Outstanding
Contribution to the British Music
Industry designation, for their 30 years
of service, 100 million albums sold and
untold contribution to the sahis of white
silk and polyester suits.
