Badlands / Truckstop

1980 - 1982
302 / 304 Avondale

In this location the Silver Bullet and Silver Phoenix struggled from 1977 to 1980
with a number of fires and neighborhood problems. It finally closed in March 1980.

a bit of pre-opening hype for the new bar...11/80


and already a battle with the Avondale Association...
this is a neighborhood of fine old homes and there is insufficient parking





there was a mechanical bull...


  By this time they opened the Truck Stop next door








in that location now is a block of townhouses...
