Dare Tabloid Reprint, February 1991

This is a reprint of the February 1991 Dare Tabloid, a vaguely monthly review and issues magazine about Jacksonville from the late 80s to the early 90s. In it are contained reviews of old theater shows, the full panorama of the nightclub scene, local issues and politicians and satirical essays. The February 1991 Issue was built around misadventures with an abnormally large group of neo nazis and skinheads which had formed in town, the ongoing controversy over the use of Tommy Hazouri's toupe as a mayoral campaign issue and how much livestock did it take before the area's finest hotels would cancel a reservation.

This is the same Michael Emerson who presently stars as Ben on Lost.

This one always tickled me.  It got reprinted multiple times in other publications.

Baha, Crawdady's, Shades... good bit of reminiscing going on right now  :)

Cows! Michael Emerson! I'm getting such a kick out of these old articles!

Have you seen the one with Arvid Smith yet, Bill?

Wow, this sends me back. Not that I was in town at the time: 1991 had me still overachieving at dear Lawtey Elementary School. But I had a radio and my grandparents' discarded day-old issues of the T-U. DJ Robert Goodman, Shades Nightclub, Baha, The Third Dimension and Tommy Hazouri ... ahhh, memories. Miss Garvin's symphony review was enchanting.

I was working at Regency Mall during this time range.Wow, East Side Mario's. I had completely forgotten that one. Did that go into the space that Houlihan's vacated? I do remember that it didn't last long. I worked at Dunderbaks  and remember going to get after work beers there.

How enlightening Stephen, guess I'll have to call all of my old girlfriends and tell them to cancel our reunion...  You know what we all used to sing about "B B" don't you??

Stephen, if you are referring to the piece about the Jax Music Coalition, yes, I saw it.

I like how you don't show favoritism to any club or organization, even the supposedly "hip" ones, like the Einstein (and I loved the Einstein).

What I really liked was the DARE Arson Suspect Toteboard on Who Burned the Rave?  That was some good analytical forensics, there, I don't care who y'are.

And everything from Parapsychology to Cross-dressing... my God, is there any subject you didn't cover?

...hehehe...Betsy the heifer...

Deadgirlsdontdance and I have been cackling over the back issues,  She's gotten a bunch of them done, and I will be uploading more shortly!  Betsy the heifer rocks!

For some reason we covered Arvid a whole bunch back then.

And no we didnt recognize any differences at all between old and young, hip or square.  In fact we got a lot of mileage by reviewing First Baptist as a nightclub (it was the best place to get laid on Wednesday Night) and by being the first press in the city to cover the gay and lesbian clubs without any real comment.
