Buckaroo Tavern’s last day

By master · September 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Fans of the Buckaroo Tavern: you have until 2 a.m. to say goodbye to this beloved Fremont establishment, which will close its doors at 4201 Fremont Ave. N. after last call tonight.

We told you Wednesday that the Buck’s countdown to closure was nigh and we shared with you this page, that chronicles the history of the 72-year-old neighborhood watering hole in words, photos and a video, with the help of the nonprofit Common Language Project.

Comments and memories have been coming to us via Twitter, our web site and in e-mail. Below is a photo of the Buck captured by photographer William Anthony, a former “Fremonster” who lived here for 6 years. He also recently took a gallery of photos of the recently completed 46th Street Mural.

“Despite the 2 a.m. Harley and Triumph revving, I enjoyed going to the Buck,” Anthony said, “I was never a regular. But I always respected it as a fixture in the community. It’s a living time capsule and it’s sad to see traditions end.”
