Subject: RE: Help: Blue Dog Cellar (Baltimore Coffee House)
Interesting thread. I remember the original Blue Dog on 22nd Street with all its quirky bohemian charm, and of course, the late George Stevens himself. I used to hang out there nearly every Saturday night. It moved to Towson, on York Road in an office building, and I remember seeing Jose Feleciano there (phenominal!) and Joe & Eddie. The 22nd Street location became the Foghorn, with the Folk Center, selling guitars and music paraphernalia on the first floor and the music club itself in the basement. There was another place on Charles Street, up a few blocks, called the Flambeau, too. Good to hear that Skip Brooks and John Fager are still alive and well. I remember that Skip was in a Las Vegas lounge act with Hod David Jr and Diane Dellarosa ("Rose") that did well enough to get listed on Playboy's Jazz Poll one year. Never made it up to Patches 15 Below or to the Cellar Door in DC.
