I think I have some DI ads from local bands like Feather Train, REO, Duke Tomato and the like. Should start a whole thread on memories while we can still remember. (Or was it Tomatoe lol)Attended for 6 months in 75 during g i bill funded tour of state colleges with the exceptional funding provided by Vietnam Nam era g i bill. Also a former student at eastern, SIU, Lakeland JC and Illinois State. 6 yrs, 1 degree. Too much fun, mostly at Panama Reds, the Lion and whatever was on top of Century 21 tower.
Anyone remember the All Star Frogs?
You nailed my list. There was huge bar at the same location before Cochranes's. I went there 1976-1977 as a freshmen to play foosball. Anybody remember the name?In my day, we had:
Boni's (our favorite - on 6th. Died our sophomore year). Turned into a mini mall.
White Horse Inn (bucket nights!)
Thunderbird in Urbana (freshman bar - Urbana was 18, Champaign 19)
Kam's - heavy frat presence
Dooley's (later COD's)
Cochranes (across from EE building - quarter Little King's on Wednesdays!)
Illini Inn (mug club)
Red Lion (Changed names several times, was a gay bar for awhile)
Panama Reds (on Green by RR tracks)
Mabel's (bands, on Green street)
Murphy's - grad students
Round Robin - 10 cent hot dogs
DeLuxe Billiards (oh, the fish sandwiches)
Lot's of others that were more restaurants that served beer (Treno's, Coslow's, Zorba's, etc.)
Geez - how'd I ever graduate.
I’m sorry for asking what I’m sure is answered elsewhere, but where exactly should I be for the drum line and Illini walk?
