    I don’t remember that one having a name. I think it was just The Forum?

    Forum Inn?

    In 84 there was a picture in the Sun of the boys with the Stanley Cup and an 'employee' of said establishment with all her naughty bits hidden behind the Cup.

    Man times have changed.

    Rainbow Butt Monkeys opening for Sven Gali before they became Finger 11 and Sven Gali disappeared was a fun memory as they blew them off the stage. Lots of other great upstart Canadian bands played there.

    Yeah...really liked the live music venues. Saw some interesting bands in Peoples Pub and elsewhere.

    I go back far enough to remember a cover band called Click that used to play the Rex all the time...great band!

    Senor Frog's on 109th downtown, Club Malibu: The Morgue just off Whyte, Barry Ts... All memories (in retrospect, what happened there is pretty appalling by today's standards).

    When I moved away, there was a new bar that opened up just south of Whyte on Calgary Trail North on the east side - what was it called?

    Had a beer with Iggy & some of his buddies on the patio at the I-ho one evening back in the early 2000's.

    Yeah, I forgot about the Boiler Lounge. I spent a lot of time in there in 85/86.
