ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A local restaurant is using its menu to honor the late comedian and actor Bob Saget this weekend. Saget died Jan. 9 at the age of 65.

In the past, Cafe Madison in Albany made specials based on a certain theme each weekend, and this weekend, they are making special that are Full House-themed. Last weekend’s theme honored Betty White, who passed away in December.

“It was just kind of a fun homage to them, unfortunately both of them passed away, but it was more of a celebration of their life and their influence on pop culture,” BMT Hospitality Dir. of Restaurants John Dollard said.

Along with having a theme each weekend, the restaurant also looks for food items that are trending.

Available until Sunday, you can get the “Danny Tanner Tater Tot Beni,” the “Olsen Twins Double Stuffed Waffles,” and the “Kimmy Gibbler Nashville Hot Breakfast Burrito.”

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
