Default Village Inn

Does anyone have any memories/info on the Village Inn? It apparently was a bar/restaurant located near far north San Pedro back in the late 70's.

WOW ...I spent way too many night there ...listening to Stardust/The Maxx (The Perone Brothers). It was located in the Hill Country Village center ..just north of 281 and Bitters. I recall the happy drinks ..a 32 0z tumbler of run and coke for $2.25. I moved away to college in the early 80's ..it burned down while I was away.

Also recall in some not-so-enlightened days, cruising the parking lot at Colonies North Mall harassing patron of a bar called the Penny Pub.

Things I miss no longer living in SA, that I thought I never would:

--The greasy hash browns at Bill Miller BBQ
--The sundaes at Jim's Coffee Shops
--Gyros sandwiches at Demo's

Hell yeah I remember that place! I bought my first board from there HOSOI Hammerhead III. Ive always lived on the northwest side and that trip to Zulu's seemed like we were going to Austin. After my first board I either ordered them from mags or bought them at Bobs Bikes where the NW alamo draft house is located. Remember Team Bruce?? He had a huge tourney out in Live Oak, after my friends and I got to hang out and skate a ditch with Todd Prince and Ken Fellion they were amatures but it was still cool. Do you remember when Rodney Mullen came to North Star Mall, damn he ripped it up inside Dillards. I still cant believe they let him skate in there. I still have my picture of Rodney and I, I was in the 8th grade. Those were the good old days, we use to skate all over dowtown at night and it was a ghost town then, now people are out in the streets all night it seems. Good times, Good times.

How cool! Yeah I remember my parents taking me to Zulu's which was really like going to Austin since I lived on the Southside. Got my first "real" board there as well, a Mark Gonzalez. I remember a guy named Guy that worked there, super cool dude. I remember this is when skating had its second breath of life. When it was about "thrashin". This was when the Bone Brigade videos just came out.
I remember Team Bruce and a skate jam/contest they had there. I remember some kid ollieing over like 15 boards. And some other contest at a park in Universal City where some kid broke his arm, it was cool. I remember Rodney Mullens coming to town. How funny that he did all those tricks back then that people are just doing now. I was in 8th or 9th frade at the time and did the same thing, skated everywhere.
My friends and I threw a couple of Skate Jams back then at a parking lot behind the Bill Millers on Southcross and Pleasanton with no permission. We had mad ramps and a DJ and people selling food. Those were the days.

Sorry, but you'll need to be more specific. 90% of North Star Mall is on the first level.
