A little bar in the middle of the desert travelers and off road enthusiasts alike frequent. Girls walk in with no ID and the owners asks them: "Are you 21?"interesting and memory jolting. In CO we could still get 3.2% at 18 years old. OR the liquor store where the guy never checked ID's. Dude was a sports fanatic - I would just walk in and ask "whos winning" or "hows he game" and that was about all it took. Granted I had a full beard in HS.
for the 3.2; Coors light, Michelob, kittle kings, Stroh's, moose head. ok, almost anything and everything...
1969 we paid $7.20 for a case of Bud, that is a rusty case of Bud, at the R&R Ft Derussy PX on Waikiki.
Cigs were 13 cents a pack, $1.20 a carton.
For beer it was usually Stroh's along with a fair amount of Boones Farm. Oh, and the Mad Dog 20/20....worst hangover of my life EVER!
Those prices are why they didn’t want GI’s handing out or reselling PX bought beers to tourists on the beach.NCO Club on Oahu in 1970 had 10 ounce throw-away bottles of Beer for 35 cents. Same10 ounce bottles were $3.50 in Waikiki.
Wife's MaiTai was $5.
Since you asked. 1972, 10 years old in 5th Grade. Grandparents lived in Eynon, PA, about 30 minutes north east of Wilksbarre, PA, where they Brewed...I'm waiting for the " what did you drink in grade school " thread .
