Memories of the Past #3
North Main Tavern located in the same block as
the First National Bank, north of Central Avenue on the west side of Main St.
The Covered Wagon was located a door or two up from the American Cafe on the
east side Main St, south of Central Avenue. These were the first bars to have
the dancing "go go girls" in Minot. Shortly thereafter Gordon's
Holiday Spot – Sundowner Lounge and the 13 Club on 1st St. got them.
Gordon's is now Hibachi restaurant. Trails West Bottle shop was I think the
Sundowner and then SideKicks. Back in the middle 60's Gordon's Holiday Spot
lounge-bar the band "The Evans Sisters and Carl" played. It was a
pretty popular night spot at the time.
