Bars where Pete has had a drink

#2233 - Captain's Corner, Aberdeen, WA - 7/15/2013

This building was constructed in 1898 and there have been bars in it for over 100 years.  City guides for this old timber and fishing town, once know as "the port of missing men" and the "hellhole of the Pacific," show a saloon in this locaiton by 1911 owned by Wiest and McCracken, and up to the edge of state-wide prohibition with one owned by Samuel Ross in 1915.  Shortly after prohibition, by at least 1935, it became the Joe & Jack Beer Parlor, and then Joe's Tavern by 1939.

I don't know how long it has been the Captain's Corner (or Captain's Corner II, Captain's Corner III, or Captain's Corner Hi, as I've found in various listings) -- Manta says 1995.  It is a medium large neighborhood joint that covers all the basic small community bar standards: pull tabs, flat screen televisions showing sports, karaoke, pool, darts, etc.
