Since this thread started The Submarine Galley closed. I think it closed in 2010. They renovated the building pretty dramatically when it became Dive Bar in early 2011.

I think this is hilarious. That they tarted it up to brand it as what it actually was before they changed it. Post modern in a time of post-post-modern. Already old fashioned.

You must be young. Castle Farms was the winter home of the big band era dance bands when Coney's Moonlight Gardens was closed. I saw several of the big bands there, though the era was definitely winding down. I also remember some New Years Eve parties there where things got rather wild. They had a package store operation on the first floor where you could buy a bottle of booze.

I got a kick out of your references to R&B and rock and roll bands. I am sure they were reduced to that prior to their ultimate demise, but in their heyday it was a swank place to go. My parents were frequent visitors there for dancing, and since I am in my 70s you can extrapolate how long ago that was.

Just happened across this after a convo on FB reminded me of some of the times I had in this area, and someone told me Sudsy's is closed. How sad. I was up there (worked at the Subway next door to Sudsy Malone's) in the late 90's. Got hooked on my still-favorite band, GWAR at Bogart's, saw Electric Hellfire Club and Hogscraper (anyone remember/familiar with Hogscraper?) at Sudsy Malone's...

Funny thing is, I was remembering some of the wild characters of the area, there was a guy...I vaguely recall his name might have been T or something like that...anyhow, he was an older black man with amputated legs who panhandled up in that area. If you didn't give him money and especially if you were rude, he was known to threaten and chase you (in his wheelchair.) People on FB who have been in the area recently--I left in 99--say he is STILL THERE, panhandling "like a mofo" with a sign reading "Give me your money or I'll kick you in the head." Which totally sounds like the same guy I knew.

I also used to go to this all night coffee shop called "Angst" but it wasn't in the same area as this stuff. Anyone else remember that?

I wonder how many of the people I used to know in that area are still around. I have a hard time remembering last names, so I can't look them up online. I knew some squatter punk types that lived over near the Mad Frog bar (or whatever that was) on Vine & McMillan...one guy, Eddie, I remember...his head was too big for the rest of him, great guy anyhow. And a bunch of art school lesbians I used to know...Charlotte, Ali, Jane...Charlotte's brother Al became a stand up bass player in a rockabilly band called Rumble Club, going by the name of "Bones."

Anybody know anything about any of these folks? We were all so young...I have no idea what happened to them...

This may not be the same "Bones" 'cause he wasn't named Al, but the same scene was involved:

I LOVED HOGSCRAPER! Going to see them in a bar on someone's yard, whatever, is the type of experience I miss the most since leaving.

Not the same guy, but an interesting read anyways. Thanks!


I'm glad somebody chimed in remembering Hogscraper! I tried to watch some Youtube vids of em, relive the feel of it all a bit, but it's never the same. Ya gotta be there. I'm just glad I still have the CD...

Problem is I remember Castle Farms when it really was Castle Farms. . I remember a New Years party there when my wife, a Coloratura Soprano got up to sing. Thought she was trying to bring the chandelers down. Too bad so many of you youngsters never experienced that era, as you will never know what you missed.
