No Beer, But Music!

Yesterday was Steven’s and my 31st anniversary. We celebrated by doing our favorite Wednesday night thing of going to Fratello’s Pizzeria in Frankfort for food and music. We ate salad and garlic bread (with mozzarella!) and grooved to music by Max Scialdone.

He’s cool!

Full disclosure: one reason I wanted to go out was so I would have leftover salad to bring for my lunch for the next two days. Yum!

I sang along with some of the songs.

Steven noticed something called Boot Challenge for $10.99 on the list of drafts available. I asked our favorite bartender, Toni, about it. She showed us a large clear plastic boot-shaped vessel. It would be filled with one of two beers (I forget which). If you could drink it in seven minutes, you got a drink chip good for another draft. I declined to take the challenge, but it led to a fun discussion about questionable methods of beer consumption.

One more shot of the man.

It was a nice evening with some truly enjoyable music. Fratello’s gets the best musicians!

More Mid-Week Music

Last night my husband, Steven, and I indulged in our favorite Wednesday thing of enjoying music and food at Fratello’s Pizzeria in Frankfort. We ate wrap sandwiches and grooved to tunes by Phil Arcuri.

He’s great!

It is so fun to watch Phil, because he clearly loves what he’s doing. We sang along when we knew the words, as did others sitting at the bar.

When I was taking pictures, Phil said we needed to take one together. Our favorite bartender, Toni, offered to snap the shot.

Later on Phil was joined by a special guest artist.

We had a wonderful time.

Accordion, Too!

I never wrote much about Mark Nanni, the musician we enjoyed at Fratello’s Pizzeria in Frankfort recently.

We loved him!

He played keyboard, guitar and accordion. Another patron was enjoying the music a lot, too.

“I’m going to call you Billy Bad-ass!” he said.

Mark graciously accepted the compliment, remarking that you can’t give yourself a name like that; it has to be bestowed upon you.

You don’t see a lot of accordions these days.

The accordion made me think of Fritz’s Polka Band, another local favorite. I see that my list of local favorites grows. I say, bring it! I love music.

Music on my Mind

I guess I had a real Wordless Wednesday as I went to bed without posting at all. I don’t have time for a real post right now (I have to work for a living), so how about a few pictures of local musicians instead?

Yay, music!

Last night Steven and I enjoyed music by Matt Grainger at Fratello’s Pizzeria in Frankfort, NY.

Another favorite!

Here is another shot of Phil Arcuri at Iron Rock Brewing Company in Little Falls.

He was awesome too!

This is Mark Nanni, whose music we enjoyed last Wednesday at Fratello’s.

We have been enjoying a lot of good music lately. I hope soon to enjoy making more blog posts. As always, thank you for tuning in.

Good Evening, Not Much Post

Steven and I just got back from Fratello’s Pizzeria in Frankfort, NY, where we enjoyed music from Max Scialdone.

He is fine, yes.

My problem is one I often experience: now that I have had a Mohawk Valley Adventure, I am too tired to write about it. I shall share another picture and post this as a Preview of Coming Attractions. Or perhaps a Wuss-out Wednesday. You decide.

I love his musical stylings.

I feel certain, my readers will forgive me. Or do I mistake the matter?
