  2. This sign is a lot like our old hometown. Standing proud underneath a grey sky with it's colors fading and rusted around the corners -- it still stands as a reminder and testament to it's once glory days.

  3. I wonder if that sign came from Bill Daup Signs- "Signs from a nickel to a million dollars"

  4. Seems that I've heard Pete Townshend of "The Who" went there once with an American friend after the '67 Atwood Stadium show. Am I mistaking it for another Flint bar?

  5. Ah, My first bar. We used to go there in '79 and watch the mayhem. I was 16 yrs. old at the time and I looked like I was twelve. It did'nt matter because I had the $1 cover.

    I remember that all my friends from Ainsworth would fast at lunch and dinner to get the full effects from the experience. Free popcorn, $1 pitchers of some kind of beer, perhaps Pabst, Goebel, Black Label?

    What a Rock-N-Roll haven it was though. Roll whatever you had on the sticky table and smoke it up!

  6. The anonymous poster is correct! The Who and Peter C and some other folks hit Contos together when the boys were in Flint in 1967.
