80s Dance Clubs in Fresno

Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

I remember a place called wacky Willie's on Blackstone. Not really a dance club but a hangout for teens with live music. Had a barn like atmosphere with hay bails and hay on the floor. Video games. Cool place around 1983-1985 or so.

Also Lucy's at the Airport Holiday Inn and Beethoven's Donwntown Holiday Inn. Papa Guayo's ( not sure of spelling) at Mark's and Ashlan. Those were the favorites of employees of Kmart Store #7379 W. Olive Ave. Gawd we always got called in to the personnel office on Mondays to get the don't fraternize by the store manager. Like we cared, the personnel manager was the one who got me in to those places when I started working there when i was 19 yrs old. What memories!!

Knock three times on Shaw Ave and old town saloon downtown and the wild blue down by tower theatre. Oh, and a couple of clubs down by Herndon and black stone , can't recall names right now. I use to be an audio technician back in that era so I can still remember the niteclubs.

How about the Glass Onion? Teen night spot - downtown Van Ness or something. Mid '70's.

I think it's a U-Haul place now and has been for years and years.
