Last night at the Annual Chamber Meeting, we received a questionnaire with the following question.

The Octopus Bar was a private gentlemen's bar located in the basement of my first home on North 5th street. It was a quiet place where my friends and I sipped root beer, listened to classical music, and discussed world events. Just ask Tex Tiegs, Danny Buck, or Mark "Rattler" Schaefer.

AND IF I REMEMBER RIGHT, THERE WAS A SOFTBALL TEAM WITH THAT NAME. AND THEY WERE VERY GOOD, AND HAD SOME AWESOME COACHES. ANYONE REMEMBER THAT?

How did the discussion of world affairs lead to the demonstration of proper firearm use in the front yard?

Troy Koester, along with his wife Kari, have found ancient artifacts from the old Octopus Bar since they've purchased the Graham's former residence. Could be clues as to how productive those discussions went.

I rember when we would go watch the Octopus Bar girls play someone would ask where it was in Henderson because no one could ever find it when they came to town
