September 20 – Happy Birthday Pattie Lanzi D’Agostino

In addition to five sons, Larry Lanzi and his wife Antoinette had four daughters and not one of them owns or manages a restaurant.

The two siblings opened up a woman’s clothing store called “Chatterbox” back in the early 1970’s that they quickly grew into one of the the most popular apparel destinations for ladies in the greater Amsterdam area…
