As a barmaid there from it's opening in late December '72 until late April '73.   I saw Canned Heat (played pool after hours with band members) and Country Joe McDonald and His All-Star Band.

Mike and Gale were the bar owners then.

In 1977 or 1978 we had a bad snowstorm.  Steve Miller and his band was there.  We made it up there only to find maybe 6 to 10 people there because of the bad driving conditions. They played anyway and we were invited to his ranch in Oregon.  Didn't take them up on it but what a great memory.   Also saw Elvin Bishop there but not sure of date.
