In Memory of Frank Sinatra
Frank Sinatra was born on this day (December 12) in 1915.
I guess I gotta actually sing this one!
My father took my brother and me and some friends to see Sinatra at Resorts International Casino, the first casino that opened in Atlantic City, at one of the first shows, if not the first. I’m from Philadelphia, and we spent our summers in Atlantic City, so my father had some good connections. We had a table literally adjacent to the stage and carte blanche! It was all very exciting, and I’ll never forget the look of satisfaction on my Dad’s face because he was able to take us all out in such a manner! And in the casino itself, it was like there was electricity in the air.
Here’s to a great singer and bon vivant! Happy Birthday, Frank!
