It seems like the daytime Lounge is overrun by
This grouping constitutes the Chicagoland Mafia. (Not to be confused with Scarface, Momo, John Darco, and Fred Roti's version of the Chicagoland Mafia.)
There are two main families: the Dascenzo family (comprised of Cub fans like DeJesusFreak) and the Cangelosi family (consisting of White Sox fans like Vince Galloro). Minor families on the fringes include the Conigliaro family (represented by scotto) and the Fregosi family (represented by Shredder).
Some privately circulated references list the Colavito family (represented by buddha) among the aforementioned Four Families; however, the family seems to prefer to keep a low profile, and is rarely sighted at Chicagoland Mafia conclaves.
TVerik coined the phrase "Chicagoland Mafia" in the May 14-15 Weekend Lounge (post #18): "Once the Chicagoland mafia start posting in the Lounge (around 10AM weekdays in the East), I lose all track of time."
Here are some shots of meetings of the Four Families:
L-R: Retro-Shiite, the former Ma Freshenmeyer, Hack Wilson, Pops Freshenmeyer, Cabbage (all Dascenzo family), Ron Karkovice, and Vince Galloro (both Cangelosi family), taken at the Meetup at Gov'nor's Pub, December 2004. Also noteworthy is the Bushmills about to be consumed by Retro-Shiite, Cabbage, and Vince.
Scotto (Conigliaro family) and Andere Richtingen (visiting member of the Dascenzo family), taken at the Meetup at Delilah's, May 2005. Most likely, Scotto and Andere are celebrating the (falsely) reported death of Ronnie "Woo-Woo" Wickers, in a manner reminiscent of the Sacred Order of the Stonecutters.
