Throwback Thursday | #throwbackthursday | Watch That 1st. Step! | Jackson, TN

I was going through some stuff and came across this old matchbook and Boom ๐Ÿ’ฅ Flashback ๐Ÿ’ฅ I swear I could hear the crack of the break and the smell of draft beer ๐Ÿบ I was taken back to Buddies Place on Liberty street… Talk about a Throwback Memory ๐Ÿคฉ

I spent much of my young life at Buddies. My Dad and my Uncle Carlis were up there constantly. Shooting pool and visiting with friends. Cecil was someone I always looked up too from the time I was a little boy. Mrs. Mary that ran the bar during the day was a close family friend and I grew up with her grandsons. Ricky and Professor were also like family.

Cecil always used matchbooks as his business cards. I found this one today and it really took me back. How many of you also called Buddies a second home? Literally a place where everyone knew your name and you felt good about being there ๐Ÿ˜Š

Most of the old Southern Pool Rooms are gone now… There will never be another Buddies!
If you ever went up those stairs, you know what this means! Great #throwbackthursday !

Buddies was even memorialized in a George Dickel Whiskey ad… I wasnโ€™t working there anymore when they shot this ad, but I was there that day and watched them do it. It was pretty cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž They brought in a few props and things for the shoot, and it really captured the feel of the old place.

Itโ€™s always nice to look back on good memories. Throwback Thursday is one of my favorite days!

Have a great evening!
