the polish american club of cambridge is one block from my office
they transformed the club into the famous southie bar, triple o's, for the movie
depp as bulger
i've got to tell you, aside from enjoying the fact that i'm reading about a place i've come to know pretty well in my 14 years living in boston, i am fascinated/obsessed with the relationships between these fbi agents and their informants. being the mega-dork that i am, i've also got a little cheat sheet of what mobsters belonged with what gangs, it's a lot to keep straight...and i've googled the shit out of every single person, every single death, related to this story. there's some f@*ked up shit that happened in the neighborhood i've grown to love and have so many friends living in.
if you know southie at all, this is a must read.
