*There was NOTHING like the South Side diner - it represented the "moderate excess" of the 1980's to a fine art. There was some amazing music there on Friday and Saturday nights - the House Band, "The Allstars" backed up Mary Wells at some point - their guitar player, John Gamble has been a life long friend of mine. His wife, Cathy, baked cheesecake for Pag's, John's Place, the Overtime and more.
South side was the brainchild of Allan DiFiore who went on to TV fame in L.A. with the likes of "Grimm" and Da Vinci's Inquest. *Credit Robert Newell
