Anyone remember Wright's bait stand at the intracoastal bridge? It became Pipes after Hurricane Carla? How about Rush's? I forget where CC and Padre Is. began and ended.. Corpus Christi is simply unrecognizable to me it's been so long since I've been here. I mean wow!

Actually, the White Rabbit Nightclub was located on staples(six points area). It was facing what is now Office Depot, now its a small parking lot behind Luciano Italian Resturant. The Carousel Club was across the street from the White Rabbit, its now Office Depot. White Rabbit was best place for disco dancing. The line to get inside used to wrap around the building toward Alameda. Afterwards everyone would head for a all night place for breakfast, I can't remember the name, but people from the Carousel and White Rabbit would be there.

I think there was an all night restaurant/diner across from the Town & Country shopping center on South Alameda but I cannot remember the name either. Anyone? It was still open in the mid '90s, although it may have been on South Staples.

Are you thinking about "Floyd's" on So Staples at Autotown? That was the intersection of gollihar and So Staples.

Oh yeah, forgot about that. I don't think that the barn was open 24 hours though. I'm 99% sure that it wasn't.

It may not have been in the 80's or early 90's but it was open 24 hours in at least the mid-90's. I went there many times after the bars closed, back in my pre-parent days.

Remembering the 1950's, Corpus Christi, Tri Drive on Staples, great hamburgers with special sauce. SpudNut Donuts in Ayers shopping center. Soft ice cream either on Baldwin or Morgan, had thin thread of either strawberry or chocolate in middle. Giant ice cream statue somewhere in this area too. Borden ice cream on staples, Toddle House and I think the name was the Chuck Wagon, close to Wynn Seale, had the best chicken and dumplings.

Yes, your thinking of Harvey's. It was on Alameda where Liquid Town is now. It was open til 4:00am.
