Last Call For Maddie's Sail Loft

One of the great sailors' bars closed last Friday, and I didn't get a chance to say, "Goodbye."

I spent many years drinking at Maddie's; eating their (bad) food; and, telling stories with the crew of the various and sundry boats on which I raced. I was friendly with the owners and the wait-staff. I loved that place.

We made friends at Maddie's. We told tall tales at Maddie's. The Commode Door Cup was kept behind the bar; and, once a year, we enjoyed shots of Myer's Rum from the bowl.

You don't have to go home; but, you can't stay here.

The Lifeguard sends his condolences to the owners.

And now, the search for a new Wednesday night hang-out begins.
