    Plaid Stallions Home Bars: 1976





    I know it sounds weird but home bars filled with weird swizzle sticks and glasses from "You keep the glass" specials at restaurants feel like childhood to me and always will...

    These helped define not just the look of a lot of 70's homes, but also the culture of the decade. We were kids in the 70's so it makes sense these would take us back. I have to admit, though, it also takes me back t on of the first times I realized my mom was a human, too. An adult human, doing what adult humans did in the 70's (shudder).

    Interesting that none of these pictures have ashtrays in them. Were cigarettes falling out of fashion that early? I think my mom gave up her Virginia Slims around '76.
    WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.

    Now that you mention it, around the mid 70's is when our local drive-in/ice cream parlor stopped carrying candy cigarettes

    I remember Lou Grant getting his drink on in his office.

    Yeah, we had one, hand crafted by my father. Ice bucket, utensils, swizzle sticks, lamp which said "Bar" on the spherical glass shade... the works.

    (Edit: Example of a lamp similar to the one we had... after a quick search it seems there were so many of these with the same shade but a great many different bases.)

    ^^ My dad locked two of those "Bar" lamps down too!

    Where I'm from, pretty much all working class families were striving to have a 8 track hi-fi, pool table, leather furniture and one of these tricked-out bars. Ahh, the American dream was alive and well!
