  • John Fields – Patron on the Strip October 19, 2020
    John Fields was eager for a night of R&R as his lodge members called it…ribald-revelry. It was his turn to pick up the girls, visit the apothecary and return to the lodge with enough cocaine and opium to keep a dozen people loose and up all night. He was eager for it, despite the storm. […]
