    The Long Branch and, can't forget, Miss Kitty and Matt.

    When we were in Deadwood City, South Dakota, visited the remodeled saloon where Wild Bill Hickok was killed. Spent the night in an Old West decorated hotel room in Deadwood. It was really, really neat. Just like being back in the Old West again. Of course both of us had on our Western attire, including cowboy hats.

    If you haven't been here, you should try it if you are in the San Francisco Bay area. It is the oldest building in the Bay area (I think) and is certainly the oldest in Oakland. It resides in jack London Square, and the last time I was there, it was buried amongst buildings and commercial enterprises and quite difficult to find. Jack London and Robert Louis Stevenson drank there amd there were pictures of both posted the last time I visited.

    Late 1800's saloon in Breckinridge, CO...my sister that lives in CO used to have an A frame cabin in Breckinridge
    But they sold it a few years ago....forget why.

    Think they weren't getting to use it that often.

    As usual I'm a little off topic but looking at pics of saloons one thing led to another and I saw this and just had to post it.

    Were these the first Playboy Bunnies? Lol

    I've always been interested in the Free Lunch that many saloons served.

    Some folks believe that they featured salty foods on the menu to increase beer sales, an idea that is still popular with baskets of salty snacks on the bar.

    "When a new town was first established a saloon would almost inevitably pop up, but they tended to start out as small, hole-in-the-wall establishments with little furnishing."

    The Combination Saloon in Utah, late 19th century. Town unknown.
