Ciao Gino!

Dear Brase,

It was our intent to take a family photo in front of the famous dancing zebras.  This shall never come to pass.  Sadly, Gino closed last June before you were born.  This hip and never changing Manhattan hot spot served up the best Italian cuisine on the East Coast.  And... they did it for 65 years!  These red walls created a magical place for Daddy and Papi'.  Gino was old school and cash was the only way to pay.  This place was really cool!!

The best I can do is post a few dancing zebra on your blog.  I look to the past with fond memories but know the future holds a world of adventure for our family.
