Man, I have some great stories of the Old Big Bamboo including visiting once shortly right after Hurricane Charley. The place was dark. Like completely deserted dark on a Friday night and I nudged the front door and it was unlocked. Me and my intrepidly sexy partner-in-crime did like a Scooby Doo episode and slowly opened the door and struck a match for light. To our amazement, almost everything was in tact, just like there was a raging party going on one minute and then, poof! Everyone just disappeared a la Twilight Zone.
Ok, we were slightly chemically enhanced, but it happened just like that, really.
Delighted, we ran to the local convenience store just 2 minutes before they cut the booze sales off, got some cheap wine and candles and went back to have what may have been the last call and the last dance EVER at the 'Boo.
Years later I returned again after the fire and salvaged a few artifacts including a styrofoam float that was recently gifted to Forbidden Island in Alameda, CA. The 'Boo lives on.
God Bless the 'Boo.
