Pete was a cool guy. Took a bit to get to know him and he had a dry sense of humor, but all in all, he was cool.

NY Mills had so many bars. Target, First try inn, Uncles, Funions, PNA, Roselawn, Du Trip Inn and Sharons in Yorkville...used to walk to all of them without fear of DWI. Always fun. Rome bars were known for fights in my opinion.
never heard of them

On Oneida St before Donelly's was Three Guess's and before that, DeCarlo's. Some more old timers...Kelly's and Peppy's on Aurthor St, First Green on James St,and you can't forget the Green Lantern on Oneida Square. Used to smoke smoke hash in the back while all the old men played shuffle board. They couldn't smell it through all the cigar smoke.
