    So... that's a push, yes?

    Abels Pub- 30 Covid cases?

    ...and let's not forget smoking was allowed in bars 'back in the day'. Given the Pine's size and lack of ventilation many a night, pants and shirt were left on the back porch, lest the house reek of smoke. But oh to go back to those times. ๐Ÿป

    Abels Pub- 30 Covid cases?

    ...and let's not forget that smoking in bars was okay back then. Given The Pine's square footage, along with lack of ventilation, you would leave there smelling like an ashtray. Many a night shirt and pants were left on the back porch, lest the house smell like The Pine. But oh to have the days of The Pine Lounge back. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Maybe it was just an effort to keep their windows from getting smashed?

    Number Five

    I don't think they can mess with the firehouse, as Bucci declared it a historical landmark back in his days as mayor. Word was back then he did that just so Mcoy (they didn't get along)couldn't sell to CVS. I suspect the Mirabito store would be at the site of #5 offices on Mary St.

    Great video Ginger. Thank you.

    Hey Ginger thanks for asking. Abridged answer; possible sciatica, possible pinched nerve in L3. Nothing definitive until x-rays on back are viewed. Had them done yesterday. Was given a couple of stronger pain meds, and steroids. Steroids are helping immensely. Slept prone last night for the first time in 5 days. Doing stretches and making progress. Follow up visit next week with x-rays in hand.

    Binghamton German Club

    If I remember correctly, the Robinson Street locale was in the area which is now the American Legion parking lot. Kitty-corner from the fire station.

    Ginger, had an MRI & ultra-sound the other night when I went to the ER thinking it was a kidney stone. After blood and urine work up they were at a loss as to what could be causing the debilitating pain. I'll know more tomorrow, but my on line medical sleuthing seems to indicate sciatica.

    Bon Jov Rain

    The locals have been acting as if this over-rated hair band of the 80's is the second coming of Woodstock, so let it rain. Let the throng drop acid, dance naked and groove with a night of peace, love and understanding. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Rumble Ponies All Star Game

    Major press conference announcing the team has applied to host the AA all star game. Kinda like having a press conference announcing you sent a letter to NYS lotto requesting to win mega millions. New owner bloviates how he wants to showcase what Binghamton has to offer to those who attend said game, and what a great boost it would be to the local economy. Okay. Former big league player Daryll Strawberry is in town tonight for an appearance tomorrow at the stadium. Aforementioned bloviator takes former star/drug addict to dinner at Moxies. The Conklin Rumble Ponies have so much to offer. Somewhere D. Preston is smiling that crooked ugly smile.

    Where are the local scandals ??????

    There is something on the way. Can not speak to it right now. It is a topic that has been talked about here in the past. Only this time there is a sad ending. You'll know. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
