Mama mia! Tonight's the night!

Don't forget - tonight's the night for the authentic Italian dinner for Tommy Gregory at the VFW at 5:30 PM. Scroll down five posts for the original details. Update @ 1920 HRS. I just got back. When I left, the place was still packed and people were still eating. When I arrived at 1735 - 5 minutes after the designated starting time - there were hardly any parking spaces left on the VFW property, grass included. When I left, cars were parked on both sides of the road in front of the VFW hall for about a city block. There were no doubt more people at tonight's event than at all of Tommy's pre-primary events combined. If Mary Ann was out there writing down tag numbers, I don't think that any of tonight's crowd would have given a damn. The Italian food was delicioso! Those two paisans can cook! I wasn't too crazy about having to yell over the amped-up so-so singer-guitarist, but other than that, it was a really nice event.

Hey jay, It was nice meeting you tonight. Sorry about no conversation, too crowded and loud. Maybe next time.

Thank you, whichever of the several people I met you are.

Yeah, I sure could have done without the amplified troubadour - or at least reduced his volume by half.
