John Tesar Built a New Lunch Menu at Oak and Now We Feel Bad for Making Fun of Him*
Tesar is Everywhere.
A couple months back, we had some fun at John Tesar's expense, which is one of our favorite pastimes, sort of like table tennis and stand-up paddle boarding, only those ones we only talk about doing.
