THE FACE OF SHORTY’S: Shorty’s BBQ on U.S.1 near Dadeland is famed for its ribs and beef sandwiches but waitress Ann Gray was as familiar a presence as the paper towel rolls on the picnic-style tabletops. Gray worked as a waitress at the original Shorty’s location for more than 37 years, until she was 86 in 2010.
