This brings back memories

This is a sign advertising a local beer. I know it is not very exciting for most people, but it does have some significance for me.

You see, I used to drink Jever at the bar near my apartment. It was called David Copperfield's (74th and York) and for awhile, they were pushing this brand as the beer of choice.

I would go there with my friend Ev and a few others. We were regulars there. It was mostly fun. There was a fight in the bar once where another semi-regular hit someone with a beer glass. But all he did was spill beer - he was too weedy to do much else.

And the owners were very odd (Ev - what were their names again...i keep thinking BIll and Ted, but that can't be right). Anyway, they did have one of the widest selections of beer on tap in NYC. That works in their favor.

If I remember correctly, the owners are Bill and Keith. I wonder if it still attracts the same misfits that used to populate the place (other than us of course).

They have a website at davidcopperfields.com
