FICTITIOUS TIMELINE
3November 15, 1979 Dates20th Century: 70sBirth Dates

November 15, 1979
Carmy's brother Michael Berzatto born.



3November 15, 1994 Dates20th Century: 90sEvents

November 15, 1994
Michael's 15th birthday. Carmy gets burned trying to break up a fight between Jan-Carlo and Fak when he falls into the barbecue.



3May 27, 2011 Dates21st Century: 10sEvents

May 27, 2011
Date of bill in Carmy's restaurant paperwork.



3April 27, 2013 Dates21st Century: 10sEvents

April 27, 2013
Date Picked Up on a service order in Carmy's restaurant paperwork.



3June 17, 2013 Dates21st Century: 10sEvents

June 17, 2013
Date of a service order to repair a power probe with case sent to Northern Repair Center in Carmy's restaurant paperwork.



3December 24, 2018 Dates21st Century: 10sEvents

December 24, 2018
The Berzatto family celebrates the Feast of the Seven Fishes tradition. The specific year is not mentioned, but a Title Card reads "256 weeks to open". With the restaurant scheduled to open on May 31, 2023, 256 weeks would technically be July 4, 2018. But we know it's Christmas Eve, so 2018 is the most logical choice for the year.



3July 13, 2021 Dates21st Century: 20sEvents

July 13, 2021
Carmy hosts a Ball Breaker video game tournament at the Beef, per his social media post. The problem is that his brother Michael didn't die until February 2022, per his funeral flyer in "System". Probably a production error.



3February 15, 2022 Dates21st Century: 20sBirth Dates

February 15, 2022
Carmy receives information about Al-Anon. The date is from a receipt that pops up moments before her text, the same receipt from his dream earlier. Carmy attends the Al-Anon meeting in "Brigade", what appears to be shortly after this, however the date for that is supposed to be Michael's birthday, per Abby's voicemail. One problem with this is Michael was born in November, per his funeral flyer in "System". Another problem is the date on the health code flyer appears to be dated in June, a date that matches Richie's comment to Sydney that Michael died four months earlier, and Michael died in February per that same funeral flyer. Bottom line - probably just an inconsistency / production error.



3February 22, 2022 Dates21st Century: 20sEvents

February 22, 2022
Carmy's brother Michael Berzatto commits suicide.



3March 16, 2022 Dates21st Century: 20sEvents
