    I remember it well, The Hotel Cape May, The Admiral, The Christian Admiral. It even had a bowling alley in it. Watched it go from a beautiful place to a broken down dump thanks to idiot politicians and bad city planners. Losing it and the Windsor (arson) were 2 huge mistakes.

    Didn't make it to those. I can remember lines going around the block in both directions waiting to get into the Shamrock Cafe.

    Remember the Harbor Inn, how about the first waterslide in Wildwood, just before the bridge.
    It was made of concrete and you had to use pads to prevent from getting ripped up.
    Remember Gold nugget Mine ride on Hunt's pier
    Hell remember Hunt's pier?

    ... what was that little bar in Wildwood (north of the center of town) where they had a jukebox mostly Sinatra 45's ? Long rows of tables mostly, a bar to the left ... you could dance on the tables and nobody would "bounce" you

    Ruddedogg ... you old enough to remember that one

    the answer came to me during dinner last evening ... The Bolero was the name ... I think Frank even made an appearance or two there!

    Lucy the Elephant is still there and has been restored by a private group. Took my daughter to see her last spring. You can take a tour inside her again. Nice spot to take the little ones on a slow weekend.

    Witness doing the Tull show ... awesome ... they also played occasionally over near the Stardust sometimes ... maybe one block or so closer to the beach ... can't remember the name of that place ... was pretty small and on a corner.
