-  Summary of audio segment: "We used to have a sort of club. We would all chip and go bowling, just to pass the time." A group of Italian guys from the neighborhood and some from Watson used to go to a lake up in the Catskills. They had a club there called the Midnight Sons. They used to rent this cabin and on the weekends, they used to go up there and drink beer, play poker, maybe play shuffleboard. They used to cook for themselves.
