Maria! What an honor to hear from you. What you and the band did those intense Thanksgiving weeks was herculean! What a crazy, ecstatic physical and creative outpouring. I'm thinking now about all the guests who would tell me how they flew in for the occasion, or had seen you every holiday for the last ten years... and how about those people who came for every single set! And what a privilege to get to hear the music - I count myself as supremely lucky, even if I was running around slinging ribs while listening. I've been thinking all day about Gary Versace on the accordion for some reason; he always made me cry. Thank you so much for being such an important part of this club, and for being a part of our lives. xoxo
