wasnt that place raided as part of a RICO case? I had heard that it was considered "evidence" for such a long time which disallowed anyone from moving in on that property

could be rumor, not sure

Its where Billy C. had his printing op. The Stanford Arms apts next door used it as storage for a long time. We got to poke around in it for an hour or so one day. Just a bunch of junk.

Weren't the plates found buried out back?

I know the legal issues with the place got resolved, and someone tried to buy it and turn it into a nice restaurant.

That's when the silly not in my backyard folks down Stanford pitched a fit, and demanded no commercial establishment could reopen there.

Xanthus was a gay bar. Went in there once, saw two dudes kissing, left shortly thereafter.

Not without my roomate and I helping ourselves to a barstool first, to bring back to the crib.

Too stupid at the time to think about if a barstool from a gay bar is really a trophy.

Not so much when I used to go. There were a lot of freaks and I'm sure some gays, but it was always an interesting crowd.

Suuuuuure.

Just kidding. Yes, there were more freaks than anything else.

Not freakish, but this gal next to me at the bar was wearing about 8 watches on her arm, of various sizes, Cyndi Lauper-like. I asked her "hey, what time is it?" The look that she gave me indicated that a BJ was out of the question.

Gettin' in late... It was Zachary's when it had the mechanical bull. I used to operate it and bartend there. I remember one night David Woodley (RIP) wanted to ride the bull and all the offensive lineman threatened to kill me if I threw him off!!

I heard that too. I wondered about the building for years. Seemed like it would have been a perfect location for a bar or restaurant. I have a Gumbo from the mid 70's and it has a photo of the lakes and that building was a Volvo dealership.
