Dick and I would go to Crystal Palace on a Saturday night and take a booth in the side room and order 10 glasses of beer at once (Miller HighLife as I remember) and leave them on the table (except for the ones we were drinking) to attract underage Hartford girls...we were very popular.
Come to think of it, the Watervliet/Hartford attraction must have been a natural one. I can identify at least four cases among my friends and classmates where Watervliet guys married Hartford girls or vice versa, There were probably more. (May 10, 2008)
The Wisconsin River flows 430 miles across the state from Lac Vieux Desert in northern Wisconsin to its junction with the Mississippi River ar Wyalusing State Park in southwestern Wisconsin. Known as "the nation's hardest working river," it has many power dams and resevoirs, mainly on its upper and middle portions along the lower stretch with beautiful scenery and numerous islands.
