February 9 – Happy Birthday Frank “Bam” Frollo


bamIf there was a Hall of Fame for Amsterdam Bartenders, Frank “Bam” Frollo would be a charter member. He was a key reason why the bar side of Amsterdam’s Isabel’s Restaurant became the most popular watering hole in this town’s history. But it didn’t matter where he was practicing his mixology, the old St. Agnello’s Club, the Muni Golf Course Club House or up on Route 30 at the former Super 30 Bowling Alley, Bam’s bars were always friendly places for folks to relax, laugh reminisce and enjoy. He was born on February 9, 1926. His nickname came from the Italian word…

I’ve already started work on the second volume of “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam Birthdays” and Bam’s complete story will be featured in it. I will be sharing the complete posts of some of the Volume II birthday celebrants in future issues of the Amsterdam Birthday Blog Newsletter. If you are not yet a newsletter subscriber, you can sign up for free here.

Bam Frollo loved to play golf and his regular foursome included this other Amsterdam bartender who also happened to be born on February 9.

  1. Thank you for including my Dad. I didn’t realize He and Pally shared a birthday. We have stories about my father and Pally that we still tell that are hystarical.
