I didn't go to Hannibal's but I remember the name. I went to The Homestead and Saint Blaise. They were cozy and sometimes had live music. Local musicians. Pretty good, too! I remember dancing to fine versions of "Superstition", "Cold Sweat", "Soul Man", "Reeling In The Years"...
The Homestead sat catty-corner on Main Street, at what was then the only traffic light in town (no light at the Thruway, Puttcorner, Ames Plaza, or Mannheim). In front of the Homestead there was a big tree and a park bench. Now it's a Japanese restaurant. The tree and bench are gone. Eventually, all the trees that lined upper Main Street were cut down.
Another bar was The Thesis. Not a favorite. We used to call it The Feces. They occasionally hired bands. There was also a place up behind the municipal parking lot. They had bands now and then, but I went in only once.
Oh, and The North Light! Not bad. Live music, poetry performances, better food, and a fun balcony. Next to Rock and Snow.
To misquote Judy Garland: There was no place like The Homestead. Even when only a turntable supplied the music, I remember having a great time dancing to "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Brown Sugar".
During daytime, Manny's was an entertaining place to go, even if you weren't an art major (which I was). I'm glad it's still there. But it was another planet when Manny manned it.
