Tag Archives: mid-1990’s

Well, Sammy T’s in Fredericksburg is closing …

See yesterday’s article in The Free Lance-Star linked below.

I do believe that all of the major Mary Washington College hangouts in the mid-1990’s are now gone … Unless I am mistaken, Spanky’s, The Irish Brigade and Mother’s Pub have all long since closed … I think not long after the Class of 1994 graduated.  (Correct me if I’m wrong — PLEASE.  It would make me feel better.)

It … just isn’t the same Fredericksburg any more.

What about that country bar on Princess Anne Street?  The one that was supposedly so rough — but fine to take your date on those “okay” nights when they had square dancing?  Was it “The San Antonio Rose?”  Or was it called “The Yellow Rose of Texas,” after the song?  Something like that?
