Now Juarez.....that's a different story.
A lot of those bars closed in the early to late 80's. ELP was a great rock and roll town back then.
Juarez...hmmm let's see...
Spanish Town Inn
The infamous White Lakes
Ant there was a new modern club that I went to a couple of times before I moved in 1990 but don't remember the name. Great pick up joint. Kind of had a Miami Vice feel to it.
In the 80's I had a friend from Mexico who had diplomatic plates and a courtesy card and man you could get away with just about anything you wanted to with no bribes to anyone and no fear of getting arrested.
I still have quite a few friends who live and have business establishments there. I'm going to have to make a trip out there some day but I know it won't be the same.
When I left in 1990 Lee Trevino Street was the last exit before Zaragosa Road and I did pass through there about 3 years ago and the east side had exploded.
Wonder what the hot rod scene is like?
