George Alvarez chats with customers in his diner in the Bixby Knolls neighborhood of Long Beach, Calif. on October 18, 2010. The Alvarez’s restaurant, George’s 50s Diner, was the victim of a break-in over the weekend. The thieves took their entire stock of beef -about two weeks worth – and all but two of their 75 collector die cast model cars. George has worked at the diner for 38 years, the last 15 as the owner.
