Tender Bar

My mentioning Jerry Garcia the other day growing up in bar as a boy coincided with my recent viewing of the movie Tendar Bar.  It is currently on Netflix and worth checking out.  Based on a true story, it features a young boy hanging out in his Uncle Charlie's bar patronized by an eclectic group of regulars.  (Sound familiar?)  Here is the movie trailer:

This video (click here)  features an interview with the author of the book that the movie is based on.

The movie also features a great soundtrack including this Jackson Browne tune:
