Not Quite Gopher

For those who want the gold without the uh, golf, a bit of paradise just opened in Caddyshack, a golf-themed restaurant owned by comedian Bill Murray (featured on the cover of Irish America in 1988) and his brothers in St. Augustine, Florida. Taking the name and gold-theme from the cult classic 1980s movie, which was written by brother Brian and starred Bill, Caddyshack offers sand-wedges (sandwiches) and sports gold memorabilia and family photos. The restauranteurs are hoping to cash in not only on golf and Murray fans, but heavenly ones too; their first event was to benefit a local Catholic charity. ♦
