WINNETKA, Ill. — It was a very lucky St. Patrick’s Day for a woman in need of a life-saving assist at a Winnetka restaurant over the weekend.
A last-minute staffing issue left the Trifecta Grill in need of a busboy to fill in during the busy holiday weekend. Waitress Alina Benge had an idea: she would call her dad, who had recently retired.
“Just because he’s had the time on his hands. He’s been around the house, and you know, not doing a whole lot,” Benge said.
Her dad is Dr. Bill Benge, a retired Harvard-trained cardiologist, who jokes he traded his white coat for a white apron.
