R.I.P. Sleep Out Louie’s 1987-2007: One last photo album

The Sunday before Sleep Out Louie’s closed for the last time, I got there right when the doors opened and took pictures of the place from every conceivable angle. Just wanted to create a complete photo album of the way the place looked, so we can remember it and maybe show it to our kids 20 years from now and say, this is where we all hung out.

Here’s a link to the album.

In other news: The 55″ HDTV that was formerly at Sleep Out’s has been relocated to the Tap Room. They’ll have all the March Madness games on the big TV, and according to bartender Niles, if you want them to turn the music off and turn on the sound to the game, all you have to do is ask.

Didn’t make it to the press conference about the new arts festival yesterday, but CA arts writer Christopher “Skippy” Blank has the info here.

(2) Memphis vs. (15) North Texas, 11:30 AM today. You can watch the game live online here. I’ll be watching it at the Second Street branch office.
