Flashback Diner in Hallandale Beach has been serving the 24-hour eating needs of South Florida for a long time. The guy in the video, John Pozzi, says he's been eating there 40 years, since before it was Flashback. Pozzi was sitting at the counter with a miniature laptop webmastering an eco friendly global banking initiative.
Around 7 or 8 p.m., the place was packed, the parking lot was full, and there was a line out the door. The place is having a St. Patrick's Day promotion. For $18.99, you get corned beef and cabbage, parsley potatoes and mixed vegetables, soup or salad, a loaf of bread, pie a la mode with pistachio ice cream, and a mug of draft beer. The promotion runs from noon to midnight every day until March 17.
