The old Underground. There was a bar/night club there called the Mad Hatter- My first real "tie one on". It was an after work (Six Flags) party.
Remember Tabor Pontiac on Peachtree? I think it was just down the street from Lenox Square. It had a 20' tall indian brave standing on the roof. Well, that indian is now at McEachern High School (Powder Springs/ Cobb Co.) Standing proudly over the football field.
The disco Kroger was mentioned (Limelight), how about Rupert's! That place was some "meat market" in it's hay-day.

Rupert's was the happening place...they had their own house band and everything!
The Disco Kroger is currently being renovated and expanded.

Wow...that's a blast from the past. Didn't they require a jacket or tie...I seem to remember some kind of dress code.

Before it was Limelight and before it was Ruperts - it was the Harlequin Dinner Theater. I remember going there for Atlanta's the Jerry Lewis Telethon.

Did anyone go to Petrus on Peachtree? I thought it was such a glamorous club back then.

There is a casino and night club in Garmisch Germany that uses the Peaches Records and Tapes logo for their sign. I have seen it several times and just two weeks ago in Munich I saw their booth at Octoberfest. I have a picture of the logo, it is identical to the old peaches logo. There website is

I would bet that someone associated with this place is either from Atlanta or had something to do with Peaches records. I am going to ask someone in Garmisch the next time Im down there. Garmisch is a ski resort in the Bavarian Alps and it is just the kind of town that the people that I remember at Peaches would have loved. It is kind of a cross between Helen and Highlands North Carolina with the distinction that it is actually an alpine village and one of the best ski resorts in Europe.

Default Speaking of lost Atlanta....

Is anyone old enough to remember the Chattahoochee Raft Race??? Man was that ever a spectacle. I'll bet there was more alcohol drank and more weed burnt on that single day every year than there was teh next three months in Atlanta!!! I remember one year just a few years before it became politically incorrect to float down the Hooch in a bunch of innertubes dressed like a pirate (or what have you) and we were heading to the river from south Cobb county (Mableton) anyway right past Bankhead Highway on 285 there we saw some folks odviously heading to the raft race and we pulled alongside them and started honking and hollering and sure enough they were smokking a doobie and I promise you that we passed that joint between cars going aroud I-285!! Man those were the days!!!
