ALL Law students who did
guess, correctly or otherwise, John
Marshall Tuck - GASLIGHT will
have free wine included with their
dinners this Friday tonight -
Jeron Lafargue sent over this verbal portrait of John
Author unknown to me
He is a tall and lanky man,
Who wears a Scots beret and a silk ascot.
He leans against the bar,
Inserts a thin cigar
Into a silver holder, and lights up.
As the light blue eyes
Fix to the tophatted walrus,
Mounted on the opposite wall,
He begins to talk in a mellifluous accent
Of New York/London baritone smoothness.
The nightly magic of "John Tuck Speak"
Surrounds, and uplights us. He transports us.
We are in his element
At The Gaslight Restaurant.
