.another Bill O'Reilly lie...the Wreck Bar never had bouncers. In fact, it was generally an older crowd ( and tourists) that frequented the place. For a short while there was a 'private' type bar in the back for the younger crowd. If he worked there at all, that's probably where the draft-dodger O'Reilly was. Either way, the term bouncer wouldn't apply as the type of people that went there,were not the rowdy variety....

I remember going to the Wreck Bar which was at the Castaways on AIA!., with phony ID, in the late 60s. Located on AIA, where the action was!!!! What fun. So many places, like the Yacht South Seas off 79th Street Cswy, Pier 66 in Ft. Lauderdale, The Peppermint Lounge, Trader John's near Miami-Dade North on 27th Avenue, dances at El Portal near Miami Shores. I just found and like this site. Does anyone know or remember a blonde good looking guy named Wayne Cochran (not the White James Brown entertainer) that used to go to Trader John's? I think his family might have lived in Miramar, but not certain. If you have any hints,, please contact me, as I'd love to get in touch with him or anyone who could help me find him.
