price per head

It is impressive how places like that they have a lot of story behind the name. I think that it is great to go to places that you know that they stay alive because they know how to please their costumer.

I used to work there over a decade ago. They paid nothing, but tips were good when they first took it over. The competition of better food and with just so musical acts doomed the big barn. Plus I am not sure if Lucas ever bought the property as the son of Ernie was happy collecting his 20k plus a month in rent. I used to bring my own steaks from Jewel in and season them and have the cooks grill em up. I saw lots of Bears players in there back in the heyday. Bobby Douglas once came in on a Saturday morning to watch his kid play at arkansas. The funny part of that was the greek kid manager Bill didnt even know who Bobby Douglas was, but I did as my dad took me to many Bears games back in the 70's. Bears players got 50% discount. Just a funny story about how a bartender had to explain to a manager why this bullet passer was getting a discount.
