Yes, Spanky's became Diamond Mikes about 1974. It had a bar downstairs, and 3 rooms upstairs, with an upstairs bar it used on busy nights.

The photo you have listed as Spanky’s in the 60’s, I believe that one was where Diamond Mike’s was housed during my stint at Tech -1978-82. I think it closed before I graduated in 82 but I do remember going in there a couple of times. Our best Friday night hangout was the bar at the west end of town, before the lift bridge; that had Double Bubble where beers were 2 for 1. And then after a few hours there, we would go to the Ambassador and get dinner and a Zombie. Oh the good ole days.

• Spanky's (owned by Don Kratt) was previously the Isle Royal bar, which closed about 1968 (just before I turned 21).

I had my first date with my soon to be wife there. They had the best hamburgers in town. I was saddened to see it close.
