  • We lived on the corner of 20th street, and 6th ave. Across the street was 3 Star Bar, and
    across 20th street was the pool room. On the outside of the pool room was a vent that came
    Out of the basement, and after watching Superman on TV, and when he crushed the piece
    Of coal, and made the diamond, I went down stairs and buried a piece of coal. It must
    Be a diamond by now just waiting for me.

    Thanks Artie Longo
  • Hi. My uncle's owned the 3 Star Bar and my dad made the pizza there on weekends.
    When I was young they use to let me sit at the bar with my little 3 star bar shirt on.  I felt like a BIG girl.  Had a wonderful time back in the day.
  • Lets see if I got this right. Blacky bought the 3 Star Bar, and had a son Robert, who we also called Blacky. Next door was a cousin Sally. Next to Sally was Michael Cisco, who had two younger brothers, and across the street was Elliot Diez. Does this make any sense?

    Great to here from you. I remember going to the Avon theater with our mothers. Than we stopped at the pizzeria next door for pizza. Remember, you were the best handball player to lay down the "killer" at PS 10. Also ordering our lunch hero's at Callasino's deli across from the school. You would order the tuna for 35 cents, and I would order the American cheese, with mustard for .25 cents. Do you believe how big those sandwiches were for the price! I wrote your email down, and I for sure will email you. If ever in the Tampa area, 9lease look me up. Artie Rolex1@tampabay.rr.com
