How does Arnold Palmer order an Arnold Palmer?
“It has to be a bit awkward, right?” the Star-Ledger’s Steve Politi writes from the Augusta National Golf Club. “Does he tell the waitress, ‘I’ll have a me?’ Does he just expect that she’ll know, because of who he is. That could lead to an awkward moment if, for a change of pace, he’d like a Dr. Pepper.”
Politi did some investigating:
I chased Kesley, the waitress serving Arnold Palmer yesterday, back to the bar where she was putting in another drink order.
“How did Arnie order his drink?”
“He leaned over and said, ‘I’ll have a Mr. Palmer.’ Then he winked,” Kesley said.
Of course he did.
