The name of the establishment is Danos's, not Dano's. You can see the name on a flag behind the bar when you view the full size photo. The place would eventually be called TeeLee's in the 1950s.

Bellbottom blues

Now those are what I call bell-bottom trousers! The Navy's version didn't have anything on them. Other than maybe 13 buttons in the front.

My kind of place!

This looks like so much fun! When I'm not lounging at the Krazy Kat, you'll find me dancing at this roadhouse. Laissez les bons temps rouler!


Nothing better than watching a bunch of gals enjoying themselves while sipping my Schlitz. Is that Truman Capote to the extreme left watching the festivities?


Naw, man! Them gals is doin' what was known as Truckin'! (What? You thought the Grateful Dead invented it?!)

Ya do the Hokey Pokey

and ya turn yourself around. That's what it's all about!
