Southside Irregulars – July 11, 2018

Patti Poirier Get-Together – July 06, 2018

Patti very spur-of-the-moment, very generously, very open-armed, invited those who usually attend the main get-togethers for a little impromptu summer soiree. As it turned out we had to dub it Jerry and the Harem since it turned out to be six scintillating women and Jerry Novick. As it was just a week before Patti’s birthday

Holiday Lunch – December 10, 2017

Holiday Lunch – December 10, 2017

December 10th was a bright cold day – and perfect for the Ethelreda 2017 Holiday Lunch. Traverso’s was an inspired pick, and early in the day (12:30 pm) worked out to perfection as we had the whole restaurant to ourselves almost until we were ready to leave.  It is getting harder and harder to find
