Paranormal investigators confirm restaurant is haunted
By Jim Keyworth, Roundup staff reporter

Friday, November 5, 2004

Paranormal investigators claim they contacted two spirits, and detected the presence of others, at Mad Dawg's & Mel's Restaurant Monday evening.

The investigators, Brian and Linda Lile from Missouri, were in Arizona for a psychic convention when they heard about the recent story in the Roundup on ghosts at the Main Street eatery. Co-owners Melanie McCarthy and Madeline Manchio agreed to let them bring in their equipment after the restaurant closed at 8 p.m. Monday.

Brian Lile, a retired federal law enforcement officer and president of the Missouri Ghost Hunters Society, summed up what he and wife Linda found.

"It was a little bit of everything actually," Lile said. "We had a lot of physical evidence last night -- bar stools being moved, knocking on a door leading (to an apartment) upstairs, footsteps, disembodied voices, dishes rattling. It was quite an active night."

This is excellent publicity, but they need to move fast.

First, they need to change the name from "Main Street Eatery" to something like "The Ghostly Grill" or "Le Spooke" if they're shooting for the yuppie market. Push the ghosts, push them hard.

Next, they need to spray cobwebs all over everything, and put up spooky old pictures on the wall. Have the staff dress up as ghouls and zombies. Maybe keep a few black cats on hand... you get the picture.

Finally, there's the menu. This is where you can really make an impression. "Hamburgers" can become "Ghostburgers ", "Booburgers", or maybe "Handburgers", if you prefer something more darkly subtle.

Or just go full-on and offer specialty dishes: marinated peeled grapes as "Human Eyes", spaghetti as "Witches Hair", beef tripe as "Beef Tripe", etc.

Ghosts or no ghosts, I smell money.
