Here’s Looking At Stew, Kid: Restaurant Looking For Bogart Look-Alike

WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Here’s looking at you, kid – as long as you look like Humphrey Bogart.

A restaurant named Bogarts in West Bloomfield, Michigan, is currently looking for a Bogey look-alike for the eatery’s grand opening party in mid-June.

Restaurant owners and Bogart aficionados Dean and Bahn Micheal say they’re “looking for someone with the glamour and glitz of old time Hollywood” to impersonate The Maltese Flacon star.

The restaurant will feature Bogey’s images and feature big screen TVs playing old movies like Casablanca and The African Queen.

Besides being the start of a beautiful friendship, the winner will be required to stand next to a life-sized statue of Bogart and take pictures with patrons at the grand opening sometime in mid-June.

Contest organizers say, unlike the original Bogart, the lookalike won’t have to smoke and instead, “can put an unlit cigarette in their mouth.”
