In 1980 when I was bartending at Dr.Livingstons at the Bristol Place Hotel I made more than I did on Saturday night. I remember the captains at Zachary’s Dining Restaurant in the same hotel would walk out with $200 on a Saturday night.
Thirty years ago I made the same money.
Only difference back then was a loaf a bread cost 40 cents. And I may be wrong it may have cost less.
