Also, if you are traveling to the area the best place to park is at the east end of Santa Clara (BIG PAKINGLOT). As the west would kinda be in the ocean.

Santa Clara is the light south of the store.

Just rode by again and there are a bunch of new tikis. I even saw some Squids under glass, too.

Thanks Kitten

OOO, OOO, if you want killer burgers and awesome beer. Total non tiki except I saw that they had Voodoo Rum. The Liars Club a block or two north.

God, I think you're right, but I never would have remembered the name of that old place. And it's kind of scary that you do!

And yes it is scary....

Gamma Gamma was on the north side of Sam's/Little Sam's closer to San Jose.
The Freak Factory is on the south side of Sam's/Little Sam's at Pismo Ct. I think it is Pismo.

Yep. Gamma Gamma everybody's favorite defunct punk shop is now Wind and Sea Surfboards
http://www.windanseasurfboards.com/ who moved here from Huntington about ten years ago.

The Freak Factory is in one of the oldest remaining buildings in the area known as "Old Mission Beach".

http://www.johnfry.com/pages/MB24.html

Originally a hotel with a small luncheonette on street level facing the electric trolley running from La Jolla past Crystal Pier all the way to the old Wonderland Amusement Park in Ocean Beach.(Where Dog Beach is today)




The building's housed many things since the 1920's. Currently street level contains The Freaky Boutiki and Freak Factory Smoke Shop and Surfari Surf School http://www.surfarisurf.com/

Did you ever work with a girl named Jenny Hultgren ? I used to " date " a lot of the girls who worked at the various Gamma Gammas around town . She used to run that store till they sent her out to the El Cajon store .

Yes Mike, I did work with Jenny. And what was her friends name? the one with the red curly hair, dated a guy named Dave I think. He had a short fuse as I recall.

Ahhhh... do you remember the Sinister Icey Black Hand of Death Scooter rally to nowhere??? If you do, hehehehe... you're on your way to my not so secret identity...

Yeah , Tracy . She just got married to someone up in Seattle . Her and Jenny and Dave all moved up there like 14 years ago or something . Yeah Dave would get drunk and turn into a crazy man , he works at a tattoo shop now , and Jennny married some rockabilly rebel and is living in domestic bliss somewhere in SeaWa .

I don't remember the scooter rally though . . . lots of those moments are lost to a drunken fog . . . give me more clues
