Back in the day when I was still running wild all over Ti and vicinity, The Cave was number one for sure, with the Burleigh House and Burke's Inn tied for a very close second.
when I was frequenting the bars in TI and vicinity I definitley would vote the Cave # 1. The Burleigh house was a close second.....

Wow, this post really brings back some great memories - at least it would if I hadn't lost so many brain cells haunting these great bars back in the 70's & 80's! I do remember some fierce 8 ball pool games in the rear of the Roma and the Cave. Back then I was a fair hand with a cue, as were many of my buddies back in the day.

I'll add the local bowling establishment - the Adirondack Lanes to the list. Not your typical bar, but I shared many a beer with great friends there(here's a salute to Don Gijanto). Also, if you ventured past Whitehall towards Vermont, there was Spardello's(sp). You could mixed it up with the Clayfooters to liven up a slow evening.

Did you ever play pool with Ernie Carpenter? I did at the Roma about once a week.

Don't remember playing with Ernie. It was probably in the mid to late '70s when my pool playing days(nights) kicked into high gear. Not sure when the bar turned into Tucker's Tavern - but spent many early nights there before heading to the other, more lively establishments....

I also played in several local bands in those days. There were plenty of places to play - before the DJ craze took hold. Lots of good local talent as well - we weren't going to scare Led Zeppelin, but we made decent music(noise) at times :)

people dont go out bar hopping like they used to because of the crack down on DWI's. Back in the old days the cops would give you a ride home, follow you home, or let you park your car and get another ride. Not the case today. You cant ride around town on a friday or saturday without seeing a cop every 5 minutes. Those days are long gone...

If you splatter yourself against the guardrails, we'll put a 2 x 4 cross up there on the spot as a highway memorial and we'll keep an eye on it to see how many empty beer bottles and NASCAR hats show up that will indicate how loved you were.

Some former college classmates from the Burlington area and i were just trying to remember a bar or two we would drive to several times a year in the mid and late 1960s but most of us were too ripped driving there and back to remember the name of the place. It was somewhere between Rutland and Fort Ann, probably on the VT-NY border. It had a large main bar room and a stage, excellent live rock, they even hosted art shows at night. One friend siad Spardella's, another said the Hampton Inn, but to me could have been the Cave etc. Which bar on the border sounds like the one I mention above? Since there were so many babes there, I suspect it may have been on the NY side of the border because at that time the drinking age in NY was 18 and in VT it was 21.

My father used to take me to Spearman's after we fished Trout Brook. The first time I fished that with him was in 1953, and the last time was in 2003 when all my kids and I visited from California. The first I remember the bar and grill (that was Spearman's in the 60s and 70s, maybe before) was in the mid 50s. But the owner in the 60s, Spearman, used to swear a blue streak even when it was utterly unnecessary, e.g. "Yeah, just caught a goddamn speckled about 13 inches, Jesus Christ, he put up a son of a bitch of a fight for 'bout 10 goddamn minutes, Jesus Christ that sonofabitch was some bastard." He used "Jesus Christ" in every sentence, so we just referee to him as Jesus Christ.
