Back in March I posted up here about one of our gigs and TDPRI member @Joefish came out to see us. It was awesome meeting someone from here.
Now I gotta post up every gig... (I forgot the last couple).

Golden Nugget looks like an awesome pub...giver hell
It really is. It feels like Toby Keith wrote "I Love This Bar" specifically for it.
Some night, after we're loaded out and 'in the truck', I don't want to leave.

Ya know how most venue owners treat the bands like it's some kind of great privilege to play in their establishment? Well these people make us feel like They think it's a great privilege for them to have Us play in their establishment. It's a very rare feeling.
Every time we play some other bar, I leave feeling like "Lets just play the Nugget. Screw all these other bars."
I Love This Bar!

Nice! During my band days in the '80s, many a Saturday night ended with a beer at the Saloon* in Berlin. Is that the same place?

* At least I think that's what it was called. It was quite a long time ago! o_O

A quick google search did not yield anything on "the Saloon" in Berlin.
It's the Golden Nugget Tavern in Berlin NJ, not the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City (40 miles away).
I grew up here, but I lived in the Phoenix Az area from 1978 until 2000, when I came back here to help my parents.
I remember an old wood structure bar that was on Route 73, that might have been it, but it's gone now.

-EDIT-
I talked with a fellow employee here that has lived in that area since the 60's and he said Yes, it was the Saloon. Big place with live music 3 or 4 nights a week, back in the 80's. On that site now is a pet cemetery.
So no, it is not the same place. Only maybe 3 miles away though...
