I may as well come straight to the point….
…..it’s not a typo
…..it’s just the G-man having fun
However, for one reason or another this has been a bum year
Remember, ‘Bottom’ from 1991 ?
Well, RIP Rik Mayall
On a more mundane level I landed in La Dolce Vita yesterday
to be greeted by piles of gleaming white snow in Venice…..
Well, it is December I hear you think…..
WELL, IT IS ALSO BLOODY VENICE ! ! ! ! !
Have you ever seen a gondolieri singing ‘O Sole Mio’…..
…..wearing a parka
Because this is bloody Venice !
As you can probably guess I am annoyed about something
…..and it’s not (my) horrible hole
No, at 9am this morning the G-man shimmied round to his
favourite watering hole for his constitutional cappuccino and
It can’t be…..
It’s not possible…..
But it was true
Golosita had closed down
This is like going back to your old school and finding out a
developer has turned it into flats
Now there are a lot of coffee shops in La Citta Groover but
this spot was the best
Unusually, it wasn’t the serving girls that made this place great
Although it did have it’s fair share of the young and nubile
waitresses and of the mature MILF-maids
No, the owner of this fine establishment was Italy’s champion
This fellow baked the cake for the Miss Italia contest ! ! ! ! !
This man was literally ‘King Cake’
The shop is now locked and padlocked and a sign in the window
‘TO RENT’ in English
Now George Benson sang ‘Everything must change’ way back in
1977 but there are some things that would make the world a better
place if they persisted
GOLOSITA is one such shining example
The English translation of Golosita is something like ‘goodies’
Anyway, it’s gone…..
…..the Groover is in bits and the three new cafes
that have opened up across the square are scant consolation
