Photo Coverage: Dominic Chianese Performs at Friars Neapolitan Night
Friar Stewie Stone in introducing Friar Dominic Chianese said, "if you are a Friar you are not a member of a club, you are a member of a family!"
Last night in the Frank Sinatra Dinning Room it was Neapolitan Night. Friars were served some great Italian dishes while being entertained by a famous member of their family actor/singer/writer Dominic Chianese of The Sopranos and Godfather fame. Dominic has performed his cabaret act at Cafe Carlyle and 54 Below, but this evening he was performing for his fellow Friars and the camaraderie was evident in every corner of the club. The temporary sign posted by Giueseppe Tarillo underneath the bust of Frank Sinatra said Si Mangia, Si Beve, and Si Canta, and whether you say "mamma mia" or "oy veh" it was great to be a member of the family at this event.
