Rick’s Cafe

Play it, Sam: Bogart as Rick and Dooley Wilson as Sam in “Casablanca.”

CASABLANCA, Morocco (CNN) — You must remember this: Rick’s Cafe has just opened in Casablanca.

Not the one in the movie, the first ever real one in this town — even if you can hardly order a drink in that place without someone saying, “Here’s looking at you, kid.”

And there’s a new Rick. And like Humphrey Bogart in the film, she’s a tough cookie.

Owner Kathy Kriger is a former U.S. diplomat and entrepreneur from Portland, Oregon who worked as commercial counselor at the U.S. Embassy in Morocco’s capital, Rabat.
