"Elizabeth, I'm coming home!" / One Cup of Java Challenge

Monday's One Cup of Java Challenge: On this date in 1975, labor leader Jimmy Hoffa disappeared from the parking lot of a restaurant in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, never to be seen or heard from again. Your question this morning – where is Jimmy Hoffa? OK, that’s probably too hard for a Monday morning, so your One Cup of Java Challenge instead – to name the restaurant Jimmy Hoffa was taken from. The restaurant phonetically shares its name with a famous American comedian and television star.

Answer: Hoffa was taken from Machus Red Fox restaurant. Redd Foxx, by then a long-time stand-up comedian, was at the time the star of Sanford and Son.
