Southside Irregulars – July 11, 2018

Just a few days after enjoying the hospitality at Patti Poirier’s home, some of the Southside Irregulars got together for lunch at Highlander – a Polish restaurant on Harlem and 123rd.  Since this group was all guys and one girl, we decided that it would heretofore be known as Sue and the Southside Reverse Harem.
