Re: Greezy McGill's True Identity

'71 is Korean. Clint was mayor of Carmel while I was there, too. He had a bar there called the Hog's Breath. Several of my over 21 buddies would go there, and if was there, they said he always came sit with them and buy them rounds. You had to be 21 to get in so I never did. What year were you at DLI?

Re: Greezy McGill's True Identity

I lived on the Monterey Peninsula for 40 years, most of the time in Pacific Grove. I moved there in 1957. . My parents owned restaurants in Monterey and Carmel. My brother still lives in PG in a house we owned jointly. He brews root beer in Pacific Grove SPARKY's.

I graduated from Pacific Grove High School in 1964. Went to MPC. Both my daughters were born in Carmel.

There was on box player who lived in Carmel Valley, he had a string band. They often played Cajun tunes. I'll get back to you with his name and the name of the band.
As I recall he played a REGAL in C.

I started playing the accordion while I lived there somewhere around 1990.

Many of my friends either attended or taught at the DLI.

Re: Greezy McGill's True Identity

LA bar has been on Main Street in Lake Arthur for a long time. Right next to city hall and the lake.

Re: Greezy McGill's True Identity

Well, really about 1 block north of city hall. There’s another bar directly across the street called Charlie’s, which is right next to the old capital one bank

Re: Greezy McGill's True Identity

It was first opened in 1910, and there’s a lot of period stuff on the inside, it’s as much museum as it is bar.
