Where was the Gatsby in Whitesboro? I know there was a Gatsby Restaurant downtown Utica that had their salad bar in a real old car. It was a great place too.

a longshot, I know ... anybody remember a bartender at Target's around 1979, 1980 -- about 20 years old, light brown hair, green eyes -- kind of looked like Aidan Quinn. I think he dated a girl from Utica College. I can't remember his name!

RICK'S that was the place to be in the late eighties early nineties. I used to tend bar at both of them. We had a blast dancing and singing karoke. Sure do miss those days!!

Don't get to uppity, Upscale. BenGee's is a wholesome joint with prices a working man can afford. Try it sometime.

JJ's and Club Mistic in Rome
I used to go to to JJ's when I was 17 in the late eighties with friends that were younger than me. We very rarely had a hard time getting served.

We also used to go to a more popular bar in Rome with a big dance floor that was harder to get into on the weekends. I can't remember the name of the place...possibly Club Mistic?

I also remember a third bar in Rome that was easy to get into. Seems like the name was similar to JJ's.
