I remember Li'l Abner, Calvin & Hobbs, Dick Tracy, Donald Duck, and 2 Cows and a Chicken.
I was playing a Christmas album on the car radio just this past week.
Hopefully it will be Carl.
He misunderstands on purpose.
They have cleaned it up a little since those days. The menu was Budweiser and Peanuts-in-the-shell. Throw the shells on the floor. During the late ’60’s The Levee was the biggest Budweiser outlet in Kansas City. The band, led by banjo player Bob Schad, was mostly Dixieland-style but with lots of popular, folk and retro. As closing time approached it was common to stand on the chairs and raise your mug of Bud to sing along. Ironically, out back was another bar called Andy Capp’s, which was a little more quiet and reserved. Andy Capp’s burned about 1980, but The Levee building sustained little damage and they built the Levee Sun Deck on the roof. We ran into Bob Schad again a few years ago where he was cruise director on the American Queen riverboat. Lots of memories!
The last time we were at The Levee (a sing-along beer-and-peanuts bar in Kansas City) the band broke from the regular music and started playing the Kingston Trio. My wife and I were about the only ones singing because we knew all the words. Anybody else here remember The Levee from about 1968 to 1980? It is completely different now…

…and there I am!
Yeah, the musician might be Guitar Bob.
If there is one thing he underestimated, it’s the depth and tenacity of the swamp.
Chat seems to be the best way nowadays. You just have to start out so nonsensical that the chat-bot gives up and puts on a real person. I did run into one the other day where the bot told me the wait for a person would be 45 minutes.
