Remembering Bob Drake

Today would have been the 76th birthday of Bob Drake, who came here in 1989 from the wilds of Ohio to establish the legendary Wiley’s Bar in Nevada City. Bob commissioned many t-shirt designs during Wiley’s all too brief existence, but this was always my favorite.

I lift my glass to you, Robert, and hope that you and Tom Coleman, Ray Dalugge, Jim Morales and all the other past saloon owners of Nevada City are raising hell and saving us a seat at the bar.
