At one time there was an equivalent of the Icehouse in every city in the United States. It had a bar, served beer, and had domino tables, pool tables and served both men and women. It was a social center where the gossip of the day prevailed and recreation was offered.
I went to the dentist today. Help! The young woman who worked on me was strong and diligent. I came home completely exhausted. My advice to anyone thinking about going to the dentist is this: Have another drink and forget the dentist. !!
