How many 561 (old 305) boys here?
Grew up in WPB here (the 407). Now in the Panhandle.
Grew up in WPB thru 305, 407 and 561. Live out west now in the sticks in Loxahatchee.
Well sir you are within earshot of me
Another cousin of mine tells the story of how he'd spent a summer with Steve on the board walk in Atlantic City when Steve was 13 years old. On more than one occasion Steve ended up in fights with *full grown* adults and whipped them soundly. When I was in college Steve opened up a bar in West Palm. The doorway ended up being a magnet for all these idiots from Loxahatchee to come to in their pickup trucks thinking they were going to make a name for themselves, sometimes two and three at a time, by beating Steve Shepherd. He'd kick their asses in seconds every time. He has never been an imposing figure. He fought at between 156 and 159 Lbs usually. I guess people have always underestimated him. It sounds like you and I probably knew some of the same miscreants that hung around Steve's gym. Steve trained under Mark Herman, who later achieved infamy by getting convicted of murdering a classmate of mines father, Richard Kruesler. BTW, thanks for your service in the USMC. Also, that Big Daddys is still there. I think the same people are hanging out at the bar that were there 40 years ago.
Whoops, sorry about that, in my last post I mentioned "idiots from Loxahatchee." No offence.
I believe the Big Daddys is Flanagans now Great burgers Same old drunks everytime I go in
No offense taken. There are some crazies out here. Hell im probably an idiot and I drive an F250 and a 1997 Jeep Wrangler. Old school. But I only recently moved out here. Grew up In WPB and most recently lived on the intracoastal in a condo literally right across the lake from Trumps Mar-a-Lago. Moved out here about a year ago.
I met Mark Herman but can’t say I knew him. I’m sure we know many of the characters of that era. I recently lived in a condo on Flagler and walked to that Flanagan’s many, many times. Lots of regulars there.
Hopefully after that guy gets done peeing blood he takes a moment to revisit his life choices.
Great reminisces, guys. I was noted as a lazy fighter in hand to hand. I invented the half-ass Nelson hold.
How about the Brass Ring?
You guys remember the iriginal Trees Wings in Forest Hill next to train tracks? Whenever a train passed they matched your beer in the table. Plus epic wings! I think it was around between 1978-1987 ish.
Proctors world famous fish sandwich on Dixie?
I know of the Brass Ring, Tree’s and Proctors very well. My sons practically live at the Brass Ring in Royal Palm Beach. It’s their go-to spot.
Mine too when he is home from Gainesville. Small world
That was Brandy’s. Tree and Victor were partners. Tree then broke off and opened up Tree’s wings. Those were called Train Beers!
I’ve eaten a hundred fish sandwiches! Their tartar sauce was amazing.
Mom had her purse stolen at the NPB Brass Ring
