“We should open a bar.” Many have thought it, but Bill FitzGerald actually did it. And now 37 years later, he seems genuinely surprised at the emotional response to the news that he’s retiring and possibly selling his legendary nightclub, Fitzgeralds. In our far flung conversation, Bill talks about how it all started, how a trip to New Orleans opened his eyes to the possibilities, how he met his wife and partner in crime, Kate, years before he actually met her, and how a steady parade of musical greats have marched through Berwyn to play on a stage in a club like no other.
Also, later in the show, Sue Salvi has a beef with Amazon.
