Venture-N

I loved this bar, logged lotsa hours there.

Opening, July 18, 1975

owner Jim Dondson

from the ads above it appears in the early years it was more of a piano bar
cover design above by co-owner David Szynal

actually, I have no idea of the year of this shirt...

I have not found reliable documentation as to when the Venture-N closed.
The end of 2002 is close but there were not many publications at that exact time,
to reference, and Eclipse (below) still lists the club as late as March of 2003.
Do not know if that was accurate or it just did not get dropped readily from the bar page.
