I was out and about tonight doing an appearance on behalf of the station. I went to the Aqua Turf in Southington for the Southington United Way’s annual dinner. My job was to be their auctioneer. That’s something I’ve done before and enjoy.
Going to the Aqua Turf is exciting. They are prime rib! They are prime rib served in a portion large enough for Fred Flintstone! They are really tasty prime rib served in a portion large enough for Fred Flintstone.
Have I made my point?
It’s St. Patrick’s Day week. They served corned beef! Sh#t!
Oh Aqua Turf. Don’t you know how I love your prime rib?
One learns to fight adversity!
The place was packed even on this Thursday night. It’s good to see a community get behind their United Way. In this day and age of national chains for food and goods it’s important to preserve what’s left that’s local.
I saw a few friends including Marty Peshka from ESPN and Al Terzi. Al Terzi in Southington is like the Pope in Rome. Tradition is on his side.
As far as I can tell everything went well. I helped auction off nine items and hopefully got a little extra money for local projects.
As I was getting ready to leave a woman approached me. She was from Southington’s hospital. They’re have a fashion show in September. Would I help?
It never ends… but that’s a good thing.
