"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.".....Henny Youngman

On a Friday night in 1978 a young woman at Faces near Fresh Pond is captured double barreling beers at the Martignetti brothers successful parquet paradise that hosted Greater Boston dancers from the mid 70's until its closure in 1990. Subsequently, and for many years after, Faces was forgotten--but not gone. Finally demolished last year to make way for more condos, the Dirty Old Disco has finally attained the more honorable 'gone but not forgotten' status.

Miller, Schlitz, Bud, Michelob for the more affluent, American beer was frequently the beverage of choice at Faces. Crafty club patrons would often buy two at once to avoid spending more time in the waiting line and less in the people watching arena. This young lady appears to have mastered that strategy. And because she has only just begun her first beverage, there's time to see a whole lot of action before rejoining the line. We can only guess who and what she is seeing at this Dirty Old Boston moment.....

Happy weekending! Don't forget to 'like' our facebook page also called Dirty Old Boston.

Ciao for Now.....JB
