Dead Dog Saloon
Sea Isle City, N.J.

Three weeks after the "Take off your hat and show us your butt" affair, Dom returned to the scene of the crime for his first headlining gig at this great shore venue.  Don't let the tough-guy name fool you;  the Dead Dog is a well-kept, classy tavern.

Dom introduced a wrinkle at this show:  printing all the cover songs he knows on colored index cards and letting the audience help choose the songs to play.  The small crowd -- hey, it's winter at the beach -- enjoyed the game and participated throughout the night.

A lady who was celebrating her birthday stopped in long enough to have a beer and to request her favorite Bruce Springsteen song, "Brilliant Disguise" (Dom opened the second set with the tune, so she could hear it before she had to leave).  Later, a local resident named Marc had a harmonica on him, so Dom invited him to play on two songs.
