Wednesday night I went to Fratello’s Pizzeria in Frankfort, NY, because I saw that Mark Nanni was playing. He’s awesome! He plays keyboard, guitar, and accordion (no, not all at once, as I am sure some of you were about to say) (you know who you are). When I walked in, one of the workers greeted me and told me Mark Nanni was playing.
“I know, that’s why I’m here,” I said.
While I waited for the music to start I ordered some food and a glass of wine. Then I got into a discussion with some other patrons about my flowered headband, which I wore because it goes so nicely with my Beer Belly Bob’s tie-dye t-shirt.
“I was a little worried it would make me look like that lady they said killed her husband and fed him to the tigers,” I admitted. I further admitted I never saw the popular Netflix series on the case, although I did see Dateline episode about it. One of them looked up the lady’s name, and another shared me a picture.
I believe the resemblance is only superficial, but it was a funny conversation. I did wonder while I was getting dressed if I would remind people of that lady, and it seems I did, because they were the ones that brought it up. I told them a friend said I looked like Frieda Kahlo and that they would sound more cultured if they made that reference instead. I kind of lost them there.
I was delighted when the music started, Nanni opened with a jazzy tune, which further delighted me. In one song he transitioned smoothly from guitar to keyboard and back to guitar. Nice!
It was a lovely evening. I shall return to Fratello’s soon for more music and food, perhaps wearing a different hair ornament.
