Ort, which bar in Mahanoy? I'm a couple minutes up the road in Mountain Top. Who's the spy, and do you know a singer/songwriter named Greg Williams?
Wow! I had no idea that you were so close! - I could write a great American novel in Mahanoy City, and just might attempt it.
Here's your directions. Get off the interstate and head downhill into M. City. It's like 4 blocks down on the left, on the SW corner of an intersection - the place with fake stone on the front in a rowhouse. Got an old Yuengling neon in the window. If you get downtown, you've gone too far. Nor is it the place with the wondrous Slavic home cooking - this place doesn't have a functional kitchen.
Conversely,if you're coming from the northside, turn toward the interstate and it's 3 or 4 blocks past downtown on your right.
Greg Williams I don't know, but famous session bassist Freebo is from Mahanoy City: his mother still lives there. When he comes back to visit, which is reportedly fairly often, he is in one or another of the taverns there, kicking back with his old friends.
Now - do you know about the place that serves Serbian-style pizza? - Gracious, I'll have to refind the notes I took and get back to you.
Curiously, Ort. Carlton in Athens, Georgia.
P. S. Does anyone thereabouts still have a working Kaier's neon? I'd love to photograph one. I'd also love to find a Kaier's opener, but surely one will pop up in some flea market in that vicinity.
