The Original Domino's Pizza outlet

Found, after many years of searching, is the historic site where Tom Monahan, secretly a priest across the street, opened his first pizza business. Fed up with trying to recycle the left over communion wafers, he discovered that given enough water, cheese and ‘filler’..aka unknown ingredients, he could produce a SUPER WAFER that would feed the multitudes, reproducing a certain miracle and bring fame, fortune and unlimited indulgences his way. Faster than you can say ‘Papal Bull’ papa bull, papa bull, papa bull…yada yada, the services were filled, seats limited and the wine ran out early(like the gallery openings at Panza Verde)…but, what to name it, this new creation?

That said, pen in hand, I returned to a certain nightclub to observe the frailties of human behavior and I was not disppointed. Clothes were removed, lewd dancing was observed and the two…2!…shots of what was supposed to be good rum produced a throbbing headache at 4am. I’m open to suggestions…a different brand or a different venue?

Young Alex Farrar is expanding his new tienda on 3rd calle into the¬†space next door, with the intent of offering even more of a variety of events, items, and comestibles…details as provided, film whenever.

and last/least/whatever…go down to the end of 4th Avenida Sur to the Steve Skelton Memorial Library(Red’s son)now run by the American Legion, where there’s some 30000 volumes of fiction/non-fiction(and a spanish section), give ’em a 100q($12+)for a year’s membership of unlimited use…open 7 days a week, 11-3 and a local resource that’s under utilized. Tell ’em I sent you…Groucho is dead.
