Why not? haha This is one of my favorite places to hear the latest gossip. How long did it take you to decipher them numbers? My easiest hint would had been : "Pink/Black/Not hard to miss" but, that was just as easy easy the digits. LOL
Did you have success on your time off? Our son got his 30 minutes into his morning. One happy camper.:)

DO you recall when it was when I said we were neighbors? I figured by saying that and by letting you know I knew where you worked, you'd catch on. I've 'thought', from previous posts, I knew who you were. Just wasn't 100% sure. My spouse met me for lunch yesterday and cracked up when he was hearing about it.
Oh, by the way...Thanks for keeping my name hush hush. lol

I've done a little research on the Mule Lip, I've found that the Cape Girardeau, Missouri's Mule Lip was up and running in 1966. It was owned by Gerald Ruseller.(The way I read it was co-owned by somebody else but never mentioned by who). So, my question to you....How do you come up with the Mule Lip in Colton, CA was the original one IF - it was opened in 83-84? Not trying to start an argument - just asking! Not like it really matters who was first, who's was best or whatnot. We went there to drink, have fun and dance our night away...not to worry if there was another Mule Lip someplace else that was - "the original Mule Lip" or to be called a Copy Cat, years later! I'm sure people had fun in BOTH places, no matter what one came first!!:-)
Excuse me for my mistake. Gerald Ruseller was from the class of 66. However, the Cape Girardeau, Missouri Mule Lip was actively up and running in 1981, which still is earlier then your said dates. That doesn't mean it wasn't open at an earlier year. My mistake and I stand corrected in my dates.

<quoted text>Yea the owner of the Mule Lip was a great guy! Gerald R. He made a couple billion off us and then headed to California.

He hasn't been seen around these parts since.

Pepi's 1 and 2 were also wonderful clubs. They were the biggest can classiest places in the Heartland.

The Phat Cat had the most beautiful women in the Midwest there every night.

Food and drink were excellent as well as the owners were fine people
Gerald lives in Cape & just retired from Spartec.

Just ran across this thread. I waitressed and tended bar at uncle charlie's in 84 & 85. Times being hard, i also cleaned the bathrooms at mule lip once a week. Anybody remember mitch, the manager at the lip? She was petite and pretty, with dark curly hair but kinda surly and hardboiled? Guess she had to be to manage that place lol. Charlie's-- they had local music like Bill Huey and Mac Eliiot and Jeannie Hick. I guess Jeannie is now a local t-party icon. What ever happened to the other two? I moved away 25 years ago, and everywhere i lived or hung out is gone, torn don, whatever. That's progress i guess. Is there any personality, charm, or character left in that town anymore?

The city council and university and casino are doing their best to destroy any personality, charm and character left in Cape.
