Longtime San Pedro community leader Rick Pielago’s dad was the owner of legendary Harbor Area restaurant Peppy’s. Rick tells the hilarious story of how a waiter’s paperclip that accidentally clipped a customer’s blouse caused a crazy moment that left the waiter, the customer, and Rick’s dad all red-faced (for different reasons).
