That fall, he moved to Manhattan and began a series of odd jobs including holiday help at Sherry Lehman Wines & Liquors where he fetched champagne for the likes of David Letterman and Mrs. Irving Berlin,and a questionable stint selling imported metal etchings doortodoor,which got him thrown out of a host of NYC landmarks.
