<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Come to think of it, didn't there used to be one in the old Combat Zone in Boston? On the corner of Stewart and Tremont? I'm talkin' the late 60's.<p><hr></blockquote><p>You're right, there was one down there wasn't there. I forgot about it because I never entered. The one in Indianapolis was scary but that one in the Combat zone was over the top. Food poisoning would get you later if you made it out alive. I think by the time I grew up and found myself at 3AM looking for food downtown the place was closed and Chinatown was right there. (Lucky Dragon oh your lobster was so good why did you close did you kill someone?) I get lost now whenever I am in that neighborhood because all my landmarks are gone. The Trailway Bus terminal, the Playboy Club, The Hungry Eye (was that the name of it?) <br><br>There was a bar across from Trailways which my grandfather drank at every Wednesday before taking the trolley back To Worcester before World War II. Had to google the name: Jacob Wirth's. Good big fat hot dogs of some german type and beer. Haven't had a beer there since 1973 and it is still there!<br><br>My future brother in law worked at the Wursthaus in Harvard Sq so I had my share of those white wieners. They screwed up and closed.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
YES! The White Castle was next door to the Normandy Lounge — one of the skankiest strips joints in the Zone (and the last to be closed down for the re-development). During the late 70's I worked at an agency in the Park Plaza Bldg, and we used to go to JW's almost every day for lunch. Saw Gabe Kaplan at the Playboy Club in '71 or '72. Haven't been to the Wursthaus since Fenway got electric lights. <br><br>
