Eater Chicago Talks to White Palace Grill Shift Manager

Eater Chicago had "greasy spoons week" recently and not surprisingly they stopped in to talk to Hector Rivera, shift manager at White Palace Grill (1159 S. Canal), to get a sense of how things are run.

It's a fun Q&A for all you diner fans.  Our favorite blurb:
What do you do for these celebrities who come in?
When Bono came in, one of the waitresses was a big fan. She paid for his ticket, but then he turned around and left her a $50 tip. I was kind of nervous, but I got his autograph. We tried not to bother him too much. I say hi, I'm a fan, and I'll shake their hand. I try not to bother them too much cause they're celebrities and they get that all the time wherever they go.

Gives us an excuse to post this video from U2 playing at Soldier Field a couple of years ago:
