    That's as nasty as borrowing soap. Remember that powdery soap in school bathrooms and the gym showers? Did that stuff even clean anything?

    to keep the slippery soap bar from falling into the bath water or onto the shower floor, and prevent that hot water from melting large amounts of it (which is why the soap companies make it so slippery).

    No one I knew had showers in their homes in the 60s, only baths.

  11. #2661
    You got that right,if you wanted a shower in da hood you would wait for a downpour,get your soap and go for it..of course you'd get locked up for indesent exposure but you'd be clean,hehehe!!

  12. #2662
    Yep. And then you'd have to put on your rain slicker and boots. These days, I just get wet.

    We did, have a shower as early as I remember in 1964. My Uncle John's house had two as far back as 1961-62 where he lived.

  14. #2664
    The only thing my uncle had two of were kids,and after they ate up the food they would hog the bath tub!!

    What's old is new again.....I'm a huge fan of architectural history. These days
    the term 'midcentury modern' is being thrown around a lot. Midcentury modern
    homes, furniture, décor is pretty hot. Did anyone grow up in one? Bet you probably
    had some furniture/décor if you grew up in the 60's. If you watched 'Mad Men'
    you'd get a good lesson in midcentury modern.

    Anyone remember Tiki bars which were popular in the 50's/60's. I remember them
    mostly from movies/TV. Always thought they were pretty cool. I know Jerry knows
    the Kahiki and their Tiki bar in Columbus.

    I'm aware of them but I never went to the Kahiki. Back around 1976 or so, there was a notorious incident where police were called when a party with four black patrons questioned the gratuity added to their bill and the cops beat the two men bloody. Consequently, the Kahiki became synonymous with police brutality in Columbus and anathema to the black community for the next two decades, which is unfortunate because I always imagined it would have been a great experience. For decades, it was among the most iconic buildings in the city.

    I was not aware of that incident, Jerry. That's shameful. I was living in Miami by then and came back in late 77/early 78. I only had a vague recollection of their bar, but, had been there several times with family to eat. Not sure if there were other 'Tiki' bars in Columbus?

    Not to my knowledge. I wouldn't be surprised to find one now, though. Columbus has so many bars and nightclubs, you have to find an angle to differentiate yourself these days.

    YES! My father use to go to the Tiki Club and Lounge in Toledo, OH. One time when I was 14 I went in with him one afternoon. He ordered me a Martini. I tried one sip and spit all over the bar! He and his buddy the bartender fell out laughing. LOL!

    LOL! I remember my first martini. I was a freshman in college and had only drank beer
    up to that point. I only finished the damn thing as to not embarrass myself in front
    of others....it tasted like furniture polish! Still not a martini fan.

    A little more Tiki bar history. Then, there was the famous Trader Vic's.

    Oh yeah Lakeside, I know what you mean. I drink them fairly regularly now, but that first time tasting one at 14, it burned my mouth. We had a martini bar near where I live on Long Island called "The Full Martini". They could make martinis in every flavor imaginable, even chocolate! Yuk! LOL!

    I never liked martinis. We had a Trader Vic's (complete with Hawaiian/South Seas decor) in West L.A. during the late '60s when I was attending UCLA. I didn't know they were national. Could a chain of Bar/Restaurants be national? Or was the use of that name just a coincidence?

    Ha! Ha! They had one 3 blocks from where I lived in West Los Angeles when I attended UCLA, and one less than 2 km from where I live now in Munich (but I never saw it, because it's inside a hotel, and there was one in Central Amman, Jordan, where I lived for 6 years, which was about 3km from where I lived in Wadi es Sir. There was also one in Bellevue, Washington, where I lived for 2 years, during the early '70s, and also in Vancouver, B.C., within a few km of where I lived when I attended U. of British Columbia in '70 and '71. Was Vic following me around?

    JAI, I go back even further than that. Remember when you wanted to go with a girl and wrote her a note in class? It went something like this: "Do you like me? Circle Yes or No" LOL!!!!

    Surfside 6
    77 Sunset Strip
    Bourbon Street Beat
    Adventures in Paradise
    Hawaiian Eye
    Peter Gunn
    and my favorite....Thriller
