Dusty's? We snuck in there from 79-82 or so, would it have held on to that name all those years?

OH NO, Mr. QK says he remember that Mabel Murphys was open before he was old enough to go in, legally. Down by Club 20/20 or Club 21? Remember that bar?

How about Bernies Supper Club?
I was too young back then but I remember a bid to do in Kelowna when they brought in an Elvis impersonator.

I guess I left before Bernies and 20-20.
Speaking of talent.....In 1976-ish I saw my first and only male stripper at THE CANNERY. It was a 'special event'.

That was Annies.
Where I saw my first stripper on a tiny 4ft x 4ft stage, I was underage.

I remember Annies too but there was a Steamers.

I remember the name "Steamers" because of the Steamboats etched in glass used as false walls. We were not quite graduated in '82 when we snuck in and spotted one of our teachers there.

Is anyone else able verify?

OMIGOD, someday we'll be saying, "remember the Willow?"

Did you ever go to The Cave on Leon?
