The Wicked Eye in San Ramon, CA. Concrete floors, bar on the perimeter, and a single brass pole in the middle of the room. Good times, good times.

Pravda, Decatur Street, New Orleans, 2008.

Pravda, which was an "early soviet themed" absinthe bar on Decatur St, in the Vieux Carre, just around the corner from the Richelieu Hotel, where I lived while working in NOLA. Pravda had one of the most eclectic clienteles of any bar I ever frequented. I was there almost every night for 2 months. Artists, vinyl bondage fetishists, F&B late nighters off from their restaurant shifts, reactionaries, communists, neo-fascists, academics (me), a general menagerie of friendly and well spoken freaks. $2 PBRs kept the Prols like me happy. On my last night there I tipped the staff out very well. I think it closed within a year.

Memories of Times Past . . . in the 21st Century? Listen up, whippersnappers, all my memories of those are from the late 60's. There are no photos or internet connections, wikipedia references (except Henry Africa's!) or, AFAICT, remaining structures. Now that's PAST.
