"Mad Men" hottie Jon Hamm used to wait tables in Venice, downtown L.A. and West Hollywood?
He tells Vanity Fair, "I've probably been a waiter longer than I've
really been anything else. Or I'm probably coming up on even. But
barely. I quit waiting tables when I was 29." He’s now 38.
He worked at a lot of places in L.A.: 72 Market Street, down in Venice (it's no longer there), and Ciudad downtown.
"I still have
people I know that work there," he admits.
He also worked at Café Med in Sunset Plaza.
He describes the
Hollywood Hills, Sunset Strip scene: "Like Paul Stanley would stumble down
from his house in the Hills and have lunch. Then a kind of European
crowd would roll in. It was a great place to work, but my tenure there
was very brief."
Darn. I've eaten there for years. I can't believe I missed him …
