Back in 2005 someone was looking for places to eat breakfast near Coalinga, California. I posted the following:
Coalinga is also smack in the middle of oil country. And, while it may no longer be there (I don't know), it was the home of Bordegary's Saloon and Hotel, a marvelous place that still had bullet holes in the bar-back in the mid 1950s when I used to play poker in the saloon mornings after a midnight tower on a drilling rig.
I just learned that Bordegary's is no longer there on what was once known as Whiskey Row (North 5th Street). It seems it disappeared during the earthquake of 1983.
