On Saturday night, we were fairly busy. The weather was beautiful at night and people were all over our little town. I was chatting with the guests as they were walking inside when one of the servers, Alicia ran up and screamed...GUS was here! I had no idea who Gus was and why she was so excited. Gus Aituro from Guiding Light had dinner at The Bayard House. He didn't sit in her station, but as she was coming down the stairs and he was walking around...she spotted him right away and said..GUS!!! They chatted a few and she got a photo of them. He is Ricky Paull Goldin in "real life" and as of May we can see him on All My Children as Jake Martin. He was very sweet and I spoke to him before he was seated. Seems like he enjoyed Chesapeake City and The Bayard House...so I hope he'll be back.
I don't know how she spotted him like that. Tom Cruise could walk right by me and I don't think I would notice. She also spotted an actress from another soap last year in the restaurant. Occasionally, we will have someone famous dine with us like a sports player or a news person.
