Dick Wessel was a semi-regular on the 1960 TV series, Riverboat, starring Darren McGavin. The boat was named the Enterprise and McGavin was the captain, so that makes him the first captain of the Enterprise!

Mack's wife and her family are from Argentina. As to why he's moving, I think he's looking for greener pastures.

He got dissed.

Mailman Tom: Family is a good reason to move. And those green pastures made for the best steak I have ever eaten in my life. Mendoza wine also a fave.

I'm guessing Mr Beef moved from west North Ave to th 666 North Orleans address less than a mile away. If I find this to be true I'll report back. The "Hot Beef" sandwich is a Chicago staple which was served at Roger Ebert's favorite pizza joint Pat's. Pat's has also moved and is known for it's cracker thin crust w square cut slices
