Drop a couple of local golf buds into Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic, then sauce them up with a case or two of Presidente cervezas and fabrications will flood.
But Mike Rossi, co-owner of Rossi’s Bar & Grill, had one incredible truth to tell about his recent getaway to surf, sand, and sun while his family suffered through a tough winter.
This trip to the popular vacation destination offered a chance meeting with music royalty. Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale.
“So, most of the guys were down at the beach except for me and Mike Guadagno,” Rossi recalled. “We ride golf carts just about everywhere down there. So Mike and I head out, but then it starts to rain.
“We decide to pull over and duck inside this hut. It’s like a guest welcoming cottage and there are a few people inside. There’s a special Latino Baseball Hall of Fame event going on. So star athletes are everywhere. I’m standing behind this tall, muscular guy, trying to figure out who he is. He looks like a pitcher. I just can’t place him.”
The alleged pitcher turned to face Rossi, and the restauranteur stood face to face with music mogul Jay Z holding 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.
Wait for it. Then, the woman Rossi identified as some “trophy wife” turned to listen to a conversation her daughter had struck up with a stranger.
“Yeah, it was Beyoncé,” Rossi said. “I’m not a cell-phone-picture-taking kind of guy. But Guadagno is giving me that look, like should he or shouldn’t he (snap a photo)? I give him the safe sign, meaning not to take the photo.”
Blue Ivy started a conversation.
“She asked me my name,” Rossi said. “I said Mike. And then she asked (Guadagno’s) name. So I became Michael No. 1 and Guadagno was Michael No. 2. We asked her name and she said ‘Blue Blue’.”
Rossi said Jay Z doted on his daughter.
“Most of the time he held her in his arms, even at the beach,” he said. “But Jay Z did set (Blue Ivy) down to put her feet in the water. Of course, meeting them turned out to be a highlight of our trip.”
Most of the guys stay eight days as they compete in a Stableford points tournament, Jim Lozier claimed this year’s prize for an event that started 30 years ago when Rossi’s father, Al, made it a winter excursion after the Super Bowl.
“That lasted for nine years before me and the guys started our own tournament. We get away, play golf, get to the beach and tell a lot of lies,” Rossi said. “This trip will always be special. To meet Jay Z, Beyoncé and their daughter Blue Ivy? Pretty cool stuff.”
