Call Ovationtix at (866) 811-4111 and tell em the promo code: GRANDMA.  Ya neva know who you’ll bunk into at Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding. Fagetaboutit. Managgia everybody and their muddah’s gonna be there. Madonna! It’ll be a Bronx reunion. I gotta remind myself to focus on the Italian American bride and groom. I can picture it now. Outta nowhere, who’s gonna walk in - Hoodycallit from the candy store around the corner with you know who on his arm! The one built like a johnnypump. I mean, last time that happened, minga! – mustabeen the year one. Yeah dat’s right, before the flood! And you know they will be dressed to kill. Everything will be showin’ – fagetaboutit. Now, my Tony can dance -  my grandson - he can do no wrong - I’m so proud’a him. He’s my heart and soul. He’s got kind brown eyes. The eyes that pull you in just like my husband Rest in Peace, Rocco. Tony’s tall and handsome and strong as an ox; sure he grew up on Granma's meatballs. Antonio bello mio. I got tree beautiful guys around me. I’m a queen and they’re my knights. My son Antonio, he helps people, he kinda runs a social service agency, you know, saves the guys in trouble, helps the girls in trouble. I thank Saint Ant’ny he’s a good boy. I have my Johnny boy, that’s Tony’s little bruddah. I call him - Wallio – I try to keep them learnin the Italian and Sicilian expressions, and to keep their Bronx accent and always be proud.  Dat’s right. It’s the “Dese, Dems and Dose” language. Nuttin’ wrong wit it. It’s as beautiful as any language. Johnny-boy is an entrepreneur. He’ll tell you how you can invest in his brilliant ideas. He’ll make you a million. And he’s got a pair of eyes straight from Heaven, that Sinatra woulda killed for.  He takes after my side of the family. Ya know the wedding party is at Guy Fierri's American Kitchen and Bar – in Times Square – so it’s ya know classy, upscale, and full of energy. All the family will be there. Come one come all. Whether you’re rich or you got oongatz – it’s a party so come on out. It’ll be an imbroglio at the get-go! I gotta tell Tina that once you become a Nunzio you’re a Nunzio for life and every paesano, gavone and scumbari, whether shangaith, or stunaith or scustamaith is all invited! Bah! Whaddyagonnado? We’ll toast Tony and Tina with Sicilian proverbs, and raise a glass and a rucus together! This is an agida-free zone! So check your miseratz at the door and come get your tarentell’ on!
