and any thread about Paisano is not complete without a conch shell story - I bet thid one has happened more than once!
One day, while enjoying many many Belikins & Panty Rippers at Legends, I saw Paula, the owner, purchase one of his shells (who the hell knows why ). She took it home that night, placed it on her balcony, 3rd floor apt next to Cholo's. Next AM, she gets up, shell is gone. Paisano returns later that day and tries to sell her the same shell all over again.
