Transcript PAGE 6 HOUSTON GAY BARS HIT BY VANDALS by Henry Groves The 900 Club, 900 Lovett, was broken into in the pre-dawn hours on Thursday, May 25, 1972. Robbers made a small hole through two walls to gain entry and to make their exit. They stole whiskey, vodka, and other liquor worth about $60 or $70. plus money out of the jukeboxes, pooltable and cigarette machine. The vandals also took records out of the jukeboxes, cigarettes out of the cigarette machine, and a few odd things such as fruit and napkins. Not content to demolish both jukeboxes, the thieves also broke bar glasses and poured sugar all over the back bar. The Briarpatch, Greenbriar at Holcombe, was robbed by two gunmen at 1:30 a.m., Friday, May 26, 1972. •^customers and one bartender, Mickey, were in the Briar- patch at the time. Witnesses were divided as to whether the pair, one Negro and one White, were in their early 20's or in their middle to late 20's. All eleven persons were herded into the womens restroom, about the size of three telephone booths. (Absolutely no familiarities were attempted, we understand) The customers were not personally robbed. G^unmen helped themselves to cash on top of the bar and in the register. One customer lost $15. on top of the bar. About $100. was in the cash register at the time of the robbery. As the gunmen left, they apologized to the bartender, saying that they were sorry but that they had to support their "habit." The police were called, but the gunmen escaped. On May 31 the bartender and another man identified the two gunmen in a police lineup. Police told them that the pair had been involved in quite a few other robberies, including one on the Sullivan Island Club, Rice Boulevard, in which about $2100. was taken. The Cobra Club, 905 Woodrow. reports that they have been robbed five times in the past few weeks. The last of these break-ins was just a few days ago and appeared more vandalism than just for the funds in the vending machines. The machines were robbed, the pool table and juke box torn up beyond repair. Some of the boys "gowns" were strewn about the dressing room and pwoder poured over them. Liquor was taken and on the mirrows behind the back- bar messages were left for some of the employees as well as the owner which would indicate that this vandalism was done by someone familiar with the club and its operation. RR chatter Greetings Hooter -- Lovers!!! The lusty month of May proved to be an exciting one for the Red Room. Two special shows with the Golden Sisters (Ed and Jack) and Mitzi St. James -- that's Ron Abshire — saw a capacity crowd of admirers for these three talented performers.
