Sunday’s post of Fayetteville’s Rockwood Club prompted many to reminisce about other music venues in the area. They included The Bubble Club (located roughly where the KFC and Motel 6 is near the Rolling Hills Drive and College Avenue intersection), which later became the Shamrock and, later, Mhoon 71 clubs; The Tee Table, located on South School Street near the Fayetteville airport (later, the locale of Dennis Home Furnishings); and, of course, The Rockwood Club. Below are some advertisements for those venues. Click any of the images to activate the gallery for a closer look.
