The Lone Star Cafe

Lone_star Three blocks from where I live, at 13th Street and 5th Avenue, is the former home of the Lone Star Cafe. 

Today its a 24 hour convenience store, called 61 Convenience.  Oh how the mighty have fallen.

In its prime, it was a great place to see a live show.  And we saw a few amazing ones.

The one that I still remember was rockabilly great Robert Gordon.  What an amazing show that was.

I am in purgatory walking by that place every day and looking at the late night deli and thinking about what was.

Bring back the Lone Star!
