The Hot Club

Mr. D.’s band Almond Joy is playing their Spring Fling Saturday March 21st at the Volturno Club (aka St. Anthony’s K of C) which is at 1 Volturno St. in North Providence (off Charles St.). Come on down and hear some good music. It starts about 8:00.

Who has a tattoo of one of the card suits on his ankle? And I was told that the Mayor of Providence has a dagger tattoo on his ankle.

The Wizard said that when he’s my age, then he will want a Toyota Camry too. Wiz says that the Camry is a ‘pepe car’.

The Wise Man said that when he was a teenager, he went to a Linda Ronstadt concert at Bryant. Wise went up on stage and kissed Ronstadt. He got hauled in by the cops. At the time there was no police station in North Smithfield nor in North Providence, so the cops dropped him off at the Providence line. Wise might have dodged the issue, but his friend ratted him out to his parents. Wise said his father ‘grounded him for life’. His dad said, “Go to your bedroom and don’t come out for the rest of your life.”

The Hot Club is like the Hotel California: you can check out any time you want, but you can never leave. Friday Sandy and her husband Mike returned to the HC. Sandy looked great and said she was happy as a nurse at St. Anne’s Hospital in Fall River. Also spotted recently were Christine and Audrey.

The Wise Man used to have his kids watch the Celtics. When his daughter was 2, she wanted Larry Bird instead of Big Bird. When she was 4, she could name the starting lineup of the 1985 Celtics.

Preview of Coming Attractions: In the near future, there will be a Hot Club/Sportzine nicknames contest. Who’s who? How many do you know after reading the Zine all these years? Confidentiality will be maintained. There will be prizes. I will determine the winners based on the most correct answers. Fran asked me to help him raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). The entry fees ($5) will be donated to the ACS.

Fran wants to know where ‘the office’ sign is.

Patriot Pat said there’s something for migraines called ‘Head On’. It’s an over-the- counter medication that you put on your forehead and your headaches go away.

A writer called Manny the ‘clown prince’. Foot Joy said that’s disrespecting Max Patkin.
