Of all the "eras" that we went through in this bar the one I look back on the fondest was the first one C.1991-1995. I often refer to it in my mind as our wonder years.
Not to say the other eras in the bar were chopped liver. They were not. They were great in there own ways and I will give them their due in a future blog.
But how can you beat the rush of finding out that running a bar in the inner city was going to work out fine. With each year that passed, you, the neighborhood, the business all got amazingly better. It didn't hurt either that our son got married in France in 1994.
