♫ You gotta have friends ♫, as the old song goes--and Al Cacciottolo certainly does, judging by the steady stream of well-wishers who stopped by the popular Lindy's/Gertie's near Archer and Nashville today.
Literally hundreds of men, women and even children have stopped by--in just the first hour of a six-hour party--to congratulate Al on his recent victory over cancer.
Whether you know Al as a popular business owner and Garfield Ridge Chamber of Commerce member; or as the longtime president of the Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch; or as a baseball coach and all-around friend of Kennedy High School; or just as a regular-joe good neighbor, please feel free to stop by anytime before 7 p.m. today and join Al's Army in celebration!
Plenty of food and drinks, as well as live music--and the weather is beautiful, on top of it all.
Here are a few photos we shot in the party's first hour:
