"Mommy! Santa's outside Cicero's!"
Reminder: stART at the Station is today from noon to 5 p.m. at Union Station. Be seeing you at the Marketplace on the second floor! Bulletin: Nick's Bar and Restaurant, 124 Millbury St., the finest eatery and drinkery across all latitudes, will present a reprise of its Johnny Mercer Centennial Celebration, featuring Frank Racette, Bobby Gadoury, Dan Burke, Niki Luparelli, Geoff Oehling, Tom Spears, Trina Vargas and special guests, next Sunday, Dec. 13, at 7 p.m. Having attended the initial Celebration Nov. 28, Bernadette and I heartily attest that the event was, to employ Duke Ellington's highest praise, beyond category. That initial event sold out fast, so reservations are strongly encouraged by calling (508) 753-4030.
Began to eat in Worcester, 1957. Allegedly grew up on South Ludlow St. Alumnus of dubious standing: Heard St. School, Worcester Alternative High School, UMass-Amherst (wrote senior thesis on KRAZY KAT). Cartoons have appeared in CLASSIC IMAGES, WORCESTER MAGAZINE, MOTHERTOWN, WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE, INCITY TIMES. Married to Bernadette since 1989, a testament to her sense of humor, and daddy to honorary kids Eric John Yankus-Franco and Jessica-Lee Van Winkle, and to pen-and-ink daughter Laurel Angela Tilbury.
