One night only, One night only! I remember hearing about Rascals being there before that, a fern bar like the place before Revolver. Was it Blue Parrot or was that the place on Highland north of Melrose?
Before Mother Lode it was Rascals. I was there back in the summer of 1978. Blue Parrot, now Revolver, was at SMB and Larrabee,
BTW, The Probe and Greg’s Blue Dot were on Highland north of Melrose. There was a scene from American Gigolo, the one with Richard Gere from 1980, was shot inside The Probe,
this bar is amazing in every way imaginable !!!
