I’m Darin May, a 4th generation customer of Joe Josts getting my first Moderna vaccine in NYC at a clinic in the Bronx, north of my Manhattan apartment.
I’m wearing my late father David’s Joe Josts t-shirt in his memory. He lost his battle with Covind19 in Chandler, AZ on Nov 18th. His father Don, my grandfather, owned The Leilani (where Legend’s is now) and his father James, my great-grandfather, got up at 4am to sweep the floors and open for deliveries. Don also owned The Gay 90’s on Signal Hill, and The Hawaiian.
Whenever I’m back in Long Beach I stop in for a special two eggs and a Guinness.
