My Old Haunt 2

108 words

This is a another view of the Red Lion Tavern in Spokane. It's a place where I hung out with my hippy friends in the 1960s, while we were still in high school. We were underage, so we couldn't go into the bar, but we could hear the jukebox from the food concession, which was then separated by a wall with a serving window; Herbie Hancock, Aretha Franklin, the Isley Brothers, Les McCann & Eddie Harris, "Trying to make it real compared to what?" It was a great place.
