One of the Good Ones Disappears from Car Show Scene

We here at DesertCruzin just heard about the apparent demise of one of the Car Guys Care Cruise-In hosts…Fatty’s Burger (formerly Marv’s) at Sunset Corner. We are always disappointed to hear about any hard working risk takers, known as entrepreneurs, being unable to make a go of it. Of all the business ventures in the world it seems like the food service industry is one of the toughest there is. We wish Greg Hess and his family well and thank them for having us there. 

Always remember the Emails sent out from this site show only a tiny smattering of the “gargantousely important” stuff coming on down the road around these parts. If you missed the last one, just hold on because there is certainly something to do in the next day or two.
