I first met Lydia when she served my family brunch at CafÃ© Europa garbed in a retro, waitressy-looking dress that reminded me of Linda Lavin’s character on the old TV series ‘“Alice.’” I immediately began making Mel Sharples jokes that went right over her head and caused my wife some embarrassment. But Lydia’s more than just my favorite waitress at Europa ‘— she’s also an actress who just last month graduated from UNCG with a BFA in acting. ‘“I know,’” she jokes, ‘“so many opportunities with that one.’” This summer she’ll be working in the kids’ section at the Central Library when she’s not busting her hump for John Rudy. Then in August she plans to make the pilgrimage to LA where she hopes to land work in film. We’re gonna miss her, but then we’ll always have the fountain at CafÃ© Europa.
