Crocodile Club will draw politicos to Bristol Friday

On the agenda for Friday's Crocodile Club gathering at Lake Compounce are, as of now, Gov. Dannel Malloy, the incomparable Joe Visconti, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, U.S. Rep. John Larson and his opponent, Republican Matthew Corey.
Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman and Heather Somers are also on tap, thank goodness, since one guy after another would get tiresome.
Bristol Mayor Ken Cockayne will, of course, have his moment at the microphone and state Rep. Frank Nicastro will, as always, play the trumpet.
WTIC's Ray Dunaway will emcee the whole shebang, trying to keep things moving.
What else will happen? Who knows?
Tickets are still available. You can get them at the gate for $55 each starting at 11:30 a.m.
If you've never been, go. There aren't many things that have survived since 1875. The Crocodile Club is a treat.
