On Superbowl Sunday, The Drifters met in Venice for the weekend. Friday was spent at J&J Carpenters, Saturday there was a book club meeting "One More Day" and a luncheon at Jeannette Siniscalchi's for the ladies while the men golfed. The dinner on Saturday night was at PJ Carney's and Sunday brunch was at Pelican Point. Afterwards the McMahon's hosted the Superbowl.
