Pauline (Great Grandma) and Luigi’s (Great Grandpa) Grocery Store was attached to their house, which was attached to their restaurant, which was attached to their bar.

People from the neighborhood came to drink wine, play cards, eat food, tell stories & buy live chickens. They didn’t know what type of wine they sold, they just knew it was red, came from the barrel and made life more fun.
