Got milk? Well, you do now. Thanks to Louis, a full-time milkman, he is still out there delivering milk, a staple of our diet, to citizens of the Bronx, NY. If you are in the Bronx and purchase milk from your local supermarkets and bodegas, give Louis a shout out. He deserves it! ...and... Louis is an integral part of the Long Island Tailgate (LIT) team!
