The Best Time Was...

 

Best Man Paul - I was getting married July 3, 1999 to Wendy Kirsch at Samuel's Grande Manor in Buffalo. I lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Wendy lived in Elyria, Ohio at that time. Most of my friends lived in Buffalo, New York. I had planned since my brother Mike's wedding in 1981 that he would be my best man when ever I finally got married. But, Mike lived in Rochester, New York and he did not really know many of my friends. Because of the long distances between all of us, it was tough to plan a long distance wedding. And it was tough to plan a stag party. Some friends in Fort Wayne took me out to a strip club a few weeks before my wedding. But, I did not expect my friends from Buffalo to make the 7 hour trip for that. I wanted to have a party in Buffalo. So, Duke Boy (Paul Duquin) volunteered to organize a party for me at Macaroon's (Frank's Grill East). We had my favorite food - Pizza & Chicken Wings. We shot some pool. We had "Jewel" as our bartender. Many of my old friends showed up. My brother Mike was there. And I had lots of fun thanks to Paul Duquin and all my friends. That was the best time!
