Subject: RE: Washington Square Memories
I just remembered why I hung out at the Caricature. They used to have a late night bridge game in the front room. I couldn't afford to play in the after hours poker game at the Gaslight. The Village was a haven for young folksingers in the late 50's. Izzy Young's place was on 6th ave around the corner from Gerde's Folk City (that was the place to play in those days. Most of the other clubs were basket houses.) I stayed at Lionel's loft or at Roy Berkeley's apartment on Houston. I remember Jules, Paul Cadwell, Robin Roberts and Tex Koenig.
My God, were we really ever that young?
