Dean had forgotten the waiter saying Byrne also wore a baseball cap when he left the room.
The waiter brought two manhattans before Dean could answer.
The man in the bathing suit recognized him as Leo, his waiter from an earlier dinner, and waved.
According to sources at the Ocean Shore Motel, Byrne was last seen on his way to the beach shortly after midnight by Leo Sutter, a waiter at the motel.
Just then the third round of drinks arrived, apparently as a result of a nod to the waiter by Cynthia Byrne.
The game continued; a waiter kept handing round champagne.
He wrote "800 rubles" on a card, but while the waiter filled his glass he changed his mind and altered it to his usual stake of twenty rubles.
