He still plans to serve his famous fried chicken and jo-jos that put him on the map.

More than 100 people attend the event; raise more than $5,000.
More than 100 people showed up for Saturday's seventh-annual Hair of the Dog event, and raised more than $5,000 to help animals in Lakewood. The event, hosted by the Citizens Committee for the Lakewood Animal Shelter, featured 40 gift baskets, music and a live comedian. Fox 8 meteorologist Dick Goddard made a special appearance, as did Lakewood Mayor Michael Summers. Organizers hosted the event, at the Avenue Tap House, to raise money for the organization’s spay/neuter program. The donations were up more than 50 percent from years past. Organizers said the event was a “hair-raising success,” noting that the donations help maintain the group’s mission: to improve and protect the lives of Lakewood's pet companion population.
