Kensington Quiz (Vol 6)


I once knew a man named "Mario" who never charged a fee,
because he owned a tiny little grocery store called...?

Called what you Vaca?

Everyone who knew this was Cow Tree should also know that Ronnie is misleading in his rhyme that Mario "never charged a fee." Mario ALWAYS had an angle and made sure he got every penny. Those cigars didn't come cheap.

Just found out that Mario R. past away a couple of months ago. He was living in Bergen Beach Brooklyn. At his wake was a floral arrangement in the design of a cigar. Another arrangement was designed as a school bus. Mario had driven a bus for a time after he left Kensington. May he rest in peace.

I remember Marios, we never called it cow tree it was just MARIO'S to my family. My cousin worked for him for years and then later became a police office, my brother Tony also worked for Mario part time as a teenager. I remember meeting Dan Marino there as a child. Marios was the spot on church ave back then and let's not forget about the church ave crew that hung out across the street everynite. Mario was a great man may he rest in peace
