Years ago bartending was the most fun when Jerry, Dennis Larry & Richie came in. One night they all came in, betting horses drinking beers having a blast, We made a bet and now I can't remember what the bet was I do remember I won a $150 tip...BUT they tore those $50 dollar bills up and I had to put them back together. I haven't seen these guys in many years but the fun times I remember...Rest In Peach Jerry Thoughts & Prayers to Your Family
