I guess many FZ fans (especially in the 70s) smoked pot or marihuana and lisetned to his tunes. I feel it fits and many folks I know just dont believe in FZ being an anti-user. Weird music=weird guy=drug use! <br><br>The pub above is in germany, right? The postal code signs to be in the deep south...<br><br>I don&acute;t know of any pubs like that. But one of the thinks me and a freind were thinking about opning a pub like that. In 1990 a gas station near us closed down, so we fugured out what it would be like to make a pub out of it. We would call it Joe&acute;s Garage, put a sign behind the counter which reads: wind up working in a gas station, play FZ and related stuff, sell Burnt Weenie Sandwiches, the menu card would be named cosmik debris.... and on the toilet we&acute;d have the guitar albums running all the time. You could do odd things like that. But it would  mean nothing to a non.zappaphile. And you cannot run a pub on just a handful of hard cores. ::)

The cannabis cafe De Kuil is where I discovered F.Z! I love that place.  I specifically go to Amsterdam ( I live in the U.K) a couple of times a year just to hang out there for four or five days. Great weed and great music, that's paradise to me. You've gotta check it out if ever you're in Amsterdam.<br>Oh, and I do use!

It'd be cool if they did, I'll ask next time I'm there. Though that's not gonna be for a couple of months, a couple of months too long!<br>We should have that Virtual party night here though. We could start it this year, on the day The Man died, a kinda celebration/commemoration type thing. <br>I've never had a Virtual plook, could be interesting, should be fun!

There is a pub in Arendal, Norway called Zappa. They used to have a website, but it no longer exists apparently. I was in there one time, but no Zappa was played.

I`m Norwegian. That page describes a festival taking place in Arendal. Some of the concerts and jamsessions are being held in the Zappa pub. The festival is called Canalstreet and I think it`s an annual thing.
