Drink/Dine,Meet The Team ian 7/10/2012

Elvis Curiale is no longer in the Deli & Wine Cellar at Rydges Melbourne but he hasn't left the building - he is now in the restaurant as Breakfast Supervisor. while he will undoubtedly dart about looking after the guests, he can always find time for a chat. Elvis is his real name – and he arrived from Italy in utero in 1970. Yep, his Mum was a fan of Elvis Presley, and as this Elvis said, not for the first time, I’m sure, “At least she didn’t love Engelbert Humperdinck”. And can you believe that 75yo Engelbert Humperdink represented the UK in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest?! If it had been Tom Jones you might have said, “It’s not unusual.”
