My boyfriend (now my hubby) stopped into DeCrosta's Tavern that night, right after Janis had left. Seemed she went there to unwind after her appearance at Aerodrome. They were telling him how she was trying to hit on the bartender, who declined her affections because he found her unattractive. Wonder if he ever regretted it?

No she was not at DeCrostas tavern. She and friend where at the long closed Woodlawn inn. That a fact. I knew both places.
