Re: “A 40-year regular and former employee says goodbye to his bar and explains why it's forever been more than that

Back in '74 I was a little kid living with my parents in a triplex my grandpa owned at 29 Enterprise St. A recent NCSU grad, my Dad began his HR career for the university and his office was across from the bell tower in the basement of Primrose Hall. Several times a week he would come get me and we would walk together back down to Sadlacks for lunch. So, my 4 year old self, and my Dad in a sportcoat & tie would set up at the counter next to a guy with an elmers glue mohawk and I'd just sit and listen to Dr. Frank. I remember going to his house once and I'd never seen anyone with their own tennis court - for a kid this was pretty awesome. When I'd come back home from college I'd stop in for a beer - sadly I never saw Whiskeytown there, but I caught some great shows, 6 String Drag, etc. Knowing it'll be gone soon feels like part of my youth is being paved over. I feel like Hillsborough St is losing its heartbeat. Thanks Rose, and anyone who ever worked there, you'll be missed by this grown up 4 year old.
