Re(3): Tolosa Posted on October 6, 2020 at 00:40:19 AM by MJAFANALWAYS
Deep Thanks. I was struggling with this, but knew the Tolosa tickets were late 80s, perhaps to 1990, and I used to see Alberto in Milford in the 90s. I left Ct in 1997 for over 15 years, so that was my clue into timeframe somewhat.
I wish I kept programs. So long ago recalling who came and went when boggles my mind. I did expect jai alai in Ct to last far longer than it did, btw, until the late 80s strike. Kind of took it as a mainstay, until Bridgeport tipped its hand as wishing to exit the business. I grew up in Milford, so knew Milford would always have to compete for survival not just vs casinos, but vs having the only high alternative land value of the Ct frontons. No one wanted Kossuth St for anything else, nor Hartford's property , either.
