Another belly up Flint bar — The LL-T on South Saginaw. I think it started out as Bill's Still, then new owners rearranged the letters a bit, using a sideways "I" as a hypen. The photo comes via the flickr account of Jar With Most, who has a great collection of Flint images.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.

I remember a bar on second street, just west of downtown Flint called Titty City. It was either a biker bar or Cheverolet after work bar. Can't say I ever went or want to go there.ReplyDelete
Sure you never went there, Matt. I believe you. Whatever you say.ReplyDelete
Is Bill's Still the place where people would jump on the tables at midnight (closing?) and sing "Shout"? Is this too long ago for me to be commenting?lolReplyDelete
