...Pizza and Hot Rods ... delicious!!!

(entry: Carlitos)

I had moved back to Texas for a little while a few years ago, and while I was there, my friends Eddie and Joe (old highschool buddies) were working at this pizza joint called "Double Daves' (more like a BAR that happens to sell pizza, it was GRRRRRREAT!!! :) ) ... anyway, I used to spend A LOT of my time there, it was pretty much the 'official hang-out', and they used to organize these small 'rock shows'.

I would sometimes 'volunteer' to do some of their posters and fliers (for the noblest of reasons, free drinks!!!). I have really good memories of that place, I think it eventually closed down 'cause the owner of that particular location was doing some 'shady' deals (it's a Texas franchise I believe).

...anyway, this drawing here was for one of those 'mini-concerts'. I had colored it and added text and all that, but can't find that damn file. Some of the local 'hot rod' clubs were invited there to show off their muscle cars, hence the Rod ...uhhh, and I think the bands invited were mostly Rockabilly, hence to 'pompadour' (^_^)

ahhh, the good ole' days at the Double D's ... I REALLY miss this hard-cider they used to have called 'woodchuck' ...good stuff, good stuff

... anybody from Texas gone to the Double D's on here?!?

I've never had hard cider, but I did a quick check, and is it the Woodchuck from Vermont? If so it appears our local Beverages and More carries it. Looks like the one in La Jolla has it in stock, if it is the same stuff.

As a fan of "Hot Rods" Big Daddy Roth would be proud of your version Carlos. Hell, I'm not even sure if ya know who I'm talking about, but if ya do. Kudos.

Oh, HELL YEAH!!! I know 'Rat Fink' and all that 'hypster' art stuff :) ... this was kinda' like me, doing Dave Johnson, doing Roth. One of my friends was really really into that stuff, so this was kinda' like an 'homage' to the Rat Fink style, wiithout all the crazy "Crumb'ish rendering.

...and Inkblots, if you go to Double Daves, you gotta try their pepperoni rolls, it's like a heart attack inside a delcious roll! ... OH YES, Greasy goodness!!! (^_^)

I love Double Dave's (I'm from San Antonio, went to college in Austin). Have you ever had Thundercloud Subs or Pluckers Wings? I love those ghetto Texas Franchises.
