    I remember Tree was a very big man. I was only 16/17 but they were cool when we went there.

    Dad was a regular. I still have his Brandy’s shirt. Tree played football somewhere. Maybe the U? I’m 21 years old and trying to keep up the beer drinking with the trains and the seasoned regulars. They also had all u can eat wings.

        Back in my day we were hitting the Tigers Paw, Royal Dutch, Kiki Lounge and everybody’s favorite dive....the Plush Pony. Later it was HonkyTonks and Fillies.

        Best pizza place was the Sportsman’s Inn.

        Loved those days. Use to cruise Lake Worth beach nearly every night with my 1973 Mach 1 looking for races. Then of course spring breaks in Ft Lauderdale were legendary! Great time to grow up in SFla.!

          Those were my older brother’s places. I think you’ve got just a few years on me.

          I used to take my 67 Camaro to Lake Worth beach every Fri and Sat night. Early 80’s.

            Silver Spur was always packed with cute country girls that loved to dance. Forest Hill and Military I believe. Huey Burns and the County Line playing every night.

              Silver Spur was the old Tigers Paw. Corner of Forest Hill and Congress Ave.

              Huey Burns is still playing locally well into his 70’s. We go see him at Boonies in Lox. The old crowd comes out to see him. He hasn’t slowed down a bit.

                That’s right. By the time I was of age, it had changed to the Spur. My brother was the Tigers Paw guy. Huey could sing some Mustang Sally. Is Huey’s kid still in the band?

                Boonies. Best steak west of the turnpike. I live 2 miles from it.

                There was also a popular country bar in the Palm Coast Plaza. I was real young but would rufe my bike over there. I lived behind Sportsmans Inn east of Dixie.

                I think his son’s name is Bink and still plays. I went to school with his drummer Jeff Helvie whose daughter is a national recording star Brooke Eden.

                I loved their song “Florida Cracker”. It was practically our anthem back in the day. “We drink beer...our women chew tobacca...we ain’t nothin but a bunch of Florida Crackers”

                Lol.

                    Oh God...the Tiger's Paw. Can you you imagine being a bouncer in that place? Back then, there was really no such thing as an assault charge for a bar fight, no one got sued, nobody went home cryin' to mama. If you squared off with a fella, the outcome was the outcome and that was that. I would argue that that place had more bar fights per square foot than any place in America at the time. And these were no ordinary bar fights. The biggest and angriest farm boys in the county would show up there, and they were just looking to leave someone bloodied and beaten. The drinking and shtty country music, were just an afterthought. Roadhouse was a tea party in comparison.

                    When I think of all the dangerous stuff I've done in my life - drag racing down the Lake Worth Bridge, flooring it down Alternate A1A at 135 mph with my headlamps off, diving head-first into a sinkhole in Gainesville in the middle of a moonless night without checking the water level first, etc., etc. - I count walking into that bar for the first time as a 118 lbs high-schooler wearing a polo shirt and khakis and sitting down to order a drink like I belonged there as one of them.

                      I don't guess anyone remembers The Pirate's Den in Key West back in the 80s. I spent many a night and morning there in my late teens. That and a place called Upstarez, The Red Garter Saloon, and some joint right outside the Truman Annex on Whitehead St I think.

                        How about the Oktoberfest at the American German Club every year. Lantana I believe. My family loved those things. Lots of tents, 1000’s of happy drunks, German beer on tap, direct from Germany, and authentic German food.
