During the 'summer of love' (1967) in San Francisco both the Library and the Jolly Friar were great places to be! The Library had telephones on each table and one could call another table if they wanted to meet. The Jolly Friar's band was Johnny Blue and the Providers. The band leader was John Villalovos and, if I remember correctly, the trumpet player was called Digger. Those were amazing times and made fantastic memories.
