New York (Associated Press)-This is a promotion in the script of Don Draper, the “madman”.
The famous Peter Luger Steak House in Brooklyn collaborated with Tamesauds to integrate wax figures of celebrities with customers, thereby promoting New York City’s restrictions on the coronavirus pandemic for indoor dining. Relax.
On Fridays, wax Jon Hamm can be found in the restaurant’s bar. He is best known for playing Draper, the head of advertising in the popular TV series. Other figures borrowed from Madame Tussauds include Michael Strahan, Jimmy Fallon, Al Rock and Audrey Hepburn in “Tiffany Breakfast”
Daniel Turtel, vice president of the restaurant, said: “Peter Luger “thinks this is a fun and safe way to fill some of the seats we need to keep vacant as the pandemic continues,”
As of last Friday, the city’s restaurants were allowed to fill 35% of their indoor seats, up from 25% before.
Peter Luger, who has been in business for more than 130 years, will keep the mannequins until Monday. Afterwards, they will return to the recently reopened Madame Tussauds wax museum in downtown Manhattan.
