@peachfish1,
May John Lambdin rest in peace.

As you know if you read the early part of the thread, I loved the Canaligators. I think it was on Sundays that they gathered and played at length and we opened all seven front windows so we could hear the blasting music better..

Does anyone remember a singer/musician names Beverly Saunders, who played at the Come Back Inn? I'm wondering what happened to her.

@Coyoteredhawk,
I am Butch Stoner, one of the original owners of the Blue Lagune Saloon. If you have any photos of the place or Hook and the Band, can you e mail them to me at [email protected]. I would really really appreciate them.

thanks

@holmes stoner,
Hi, Butch. I don't have any photos of it, not sure if I was ever in it. I did look it up on google images and got nowhere until I looked up Blue Lagoon Saloon Venice on regular google. There's at least a youtube link there, done in 2010.
I also so saw a Blue Lagoon Saloon Marina del Rey title on the google list.

He was a good friend of ours, but we've lost touch.

I can't quite tell when he wrote that.

@BruceF,
I could only guess and would probably be way off. Maybe a friend will remember, if I remember to ask.

@lbgrob,
I was in Jaya and remember your mom and you!! I have some pictures of you and Judy from a parade on West Washington...I painted the mural and am also on it...Many happy happy times to look back on but it was tough too and still hard to get by and find a decent place to live...I look back at the early 70s with joy...after 1974 things started to go bad in Venice and a lot of people moved out...
I lived there until 1999!!! The place on Windward was Jergens...never had a real name...German's owned it..Anna the waitress, the old lady cooked, the son cooked, breakfast for $1.25...

@cynthia wolff,
Hi, this is Jo Cunningham, aka ossobuco, who started this thread. We had a gallery, me for a sadly short time/and him with theatergroup after us.

Glad to see you.
I've just been rereading the thread and saw about Jaya earlier..
I also was there until late '98. I also photo'd w. washington.
(where the hell are those photos?)

A friend and I, Nancy Giffen and I, both landscape architects and neighbors, photoed the walk streets.

I still have the slides and so on.

We tried to write it up, but varied. Tried writing up our separate views and stopped.

But the photos are still there in my closet..

@ossobucotemp,
I lived there from late '73. The landscape architecture stuff was later.

@ossobuco,
I appear to very late to the thread here... but just googling and found this. My father was Frank Kalapos and he and Betty owned the Comeback Inn in the 70's. Yes Not only did Rickie Lee Jo eat play there she got her start there and cut her first album. She sent a signed copy to my father as a thank you. I spent 6 summers as a kid on Venice Beach, at the Comeback Inn, Tommy's liquor store next door and Rose the Queen of Junk across the street. Also Zephyr, Dave? Sooo many great memories. Thanks for letting me find this! [email protected]
