Recollections: The following are recollections of others who have been kind enough to submit their personal memories to the webmaster. You are welcome to do the same! (Recollections collected and organized by Jamie Taylor.)

         --------   Gregg Fitzpatrick (who later owned the same building as The Harbor Room) recalls (Aug. 2009):
    "Two gay guys took over the bar in 1992, and lasted less than one year. They operated it as a gay bar called "The Other Place." I have info at the office with their names. They blew through their money and that of one of their mother's in no time and went belly up. They are credited with installing the kitchen, shag carpeting, updated drop ceiling and chandeliers and ran a white table cloth restaurant there. One of the two men died shortly after they went out of business of AIDS. Bill Wichmann from (the Harbor Room bar) knows this story better than I do."
