Bar/ social



The In Between bar was opened by Curt Peck, and it became a very popular watering hole, with small dance floor and good music system. The bar was decorated with various antique items, some featuring bees or playing off the bar's name.

The bar became especially popular for Packer Games (Sundays and the occasional Monday game). (Curt himself was a Packer fanatic, and had his favorite viewing spot decked out with a special stool and regalia for each game.)

After In Between closed, the building was taken over by new owners (a gay couple) who opened "Club Boom" in the space.

More information about this business is welcomed from anyone who can contribute it.
