Santa fired from Macy's gets hired at eatery

SAN FRANCISCO John Toomey said he had been telling similar jokes to adults for years, but the store let him go.

"We'll offer you double what Macy's paid and you can drink and eat all day long, as much as you want," said the restaurant owner.

Toomey can now be found at Lefty O'Doul's in /*San Francisco*/'s Union Square.

He will be working with local firefighters on their annual toy drive.

Toomey also filed a complaint about his firing at Macy's, but the store declined to comment, saying it was a personnel issue.
