Hearne: The Mermaid & the Cookie Cutter/Dark Side of Moon

Think of it as the eternal triangle meets brown and serve…

Get a tan, buy a cookie – buy a cookie get a tan. But don’t forget to pay the rent. Thus somehow begins the somewhat bemusing tale of Debbie Mandry, the busty “Mermaid” from the former Plaza seafood restaurant

    Some what related. Friends with Jermaine Jackson. He use to, especially when he was on stage, wear make up to make himself look darker. I always thought it odd that Michael wanted to look lighter and he wanted to look darker. By the way these two were not as close as he would like to make you think now that M.J. is dead. Hello…doesn’t anyone remember the song “Word to the Bad”

    Wow, Debbie, hot photo, nice upper body, and cute outfit. Sorry about your tanning biz, but you are so smart, I am sure you will land at a great place where you are appreciated.

    I think you are friends with all the female race. Be happy I didn’t make a comment about Debbie trying to land a great place and you trying to land a great piece. It was tempting.

    That was mean of Cookies by Design. I won’t be buying anything from them anymore. Shame on them.

    Poor Debbie, she is a cool lady, I moved away, but when I am in town or was, I went to her place, always liked the joint. She knows her stuff.

    Is this article some kind of a joke? Who would tell people they were the mermaid at Jules?

    I went to that restaurant and saw the Mermaid, and all my friends said they there wasn’t enough money in the world to have a humilating job like that!

    Hey D.Hannah I was really young and it was a great second job. I made good money just sitting there. It wasn’t humiliating at all. People loved it. Children adored me and I also did some great charity work. I was at a leukemia fundraiser and all one little boy with leukemia wanted was to meet me. There was a lot of events I went to like that. So it meant a lot to some people.

    I went to Jules back then, Debbie and another pretty girl dressed up as mermaids, it was fun, they were not nude, and people got a kick out of it….nobody thought they were silly or wild, just sexy and unique…she was likely around 23 or so and for a young girl it was kinda like being a cheerleader, it all about ‘how sexy we can look.” Young girls do that, and its ok, everything has its time in life…so for anyone who knocks that, likely you didn’t have the figure to do what she did, who wanted to look at you?

    Rosana what comes around goes around! Not everyone was born with a silver spoon in their mouth! You should watch how you treat people. Your not fooling anyone. Especially Mark One and the way you shove the women owned BS around KC.

    I hadn’t even dreamed up Jules when this woman was 23. I’d say 33 was more like it.

    Actually Nabil I was 24. But why are you second guessing this at 2 o clock in the morning? Weird. Your math is way off. Better rethink that this morning.

    I was a waitress there, she and the other girl were 23 or 24.

    Jules opened in 1996 and closed in April of 1999. So you’re about 34 now? What year did you graduate from high school?

    Aren’t you the Debbie McGlaughlin I grauduated with Class of 83 at SME? What were you 7 when you gradtuated? You sure seemed fully developed to me. Was that another Debbie?

    Person being Nabli, please that is not you, he is not petty like that, must be that Rick guy, who loves Debbie.

    I didn’t until reading this know this gal and mermaid were one in the same. No, I’m not Nabli. It’s hard to believe Mermaid could run a business. If you are a long time reader you know I thought Mermaid was a bartender/waitress at Glazer’s place. My guess is their is another side to this story. Mermaid takes a lot pride in her appearance. I like the girl next door look which would not be her.

    As far as Jules. Ate their once for Thanksgiving. Don’t recall any mermaids. But I do recall every time I got a refill on my soda they charged me. Screw me once….you never get a chance to screw me again. Never returned.

    I also won’t forget that my friend ordered and ate crawfish. I remember thinking “As kids we would wade in dirty creeks to catch them for fun.” “Now they are being served at a four star restaurant.” WoW.

    PS To much tanning leads to skin cancer and skin aging quicker.

    Ok that was just a side story to the real story. This article is for the customers and public who went there and maybe did not realize that Celsius was honoring their visits because Rosana Square and Cookies by Design took it down. I have owned other tanning salons since I was 20 yrs old. This was my life. I just wanted to make people aware that I just didn’t ditch my customers. Hearne just thought that was a cute side story. Let’s stay on track about what this is really for. Please.

    I salute you for your service to an industry for almost 15 years and your desire to work with your customers after your business had been closed.

    I would say your Mermaid days are more then a side story just based on your own moniker. You didn’t pick Tan Jan as your name. Also be proud of it as it was unique and different and most people don’t have that great story to tell.

    A woman lying about her age. That would be unique.
