Hi Joey,

Photos from Saturday night’s Beaux Arts Ball. Again, I live over the bridge and by virtue of knowing Marianne in Bayview, I get to be part of these events. The food was plentiful and delicious and the band, Le Prestige,very  professional.

Beaux Arts Ball Roman Orgy Poster

The pictures of this Beaux Arts Ball Roman Orgy Print were sent in by Coby Umstead,  It lists the location of the Beaux Arts Roman Orgy Ball as The Rocky Neck Lobster House which I don’t remember so it is probably pretty old.

Does anyone know the history or year when this Rocky Neck Roman Orgy took place? The Artwork was done by someone named J. Black.

Deb Clarke?  Richard Leonard?  We want details and we want them NOW! 012 014-1
