Where It's At '75 (PART TWO)

It's still 1975 and we're still in Virginia Beach... last night was a blast and now we're planning out what to do for tonight! I was going to suggest a nice drive up the coastline in a rented convertible (listening to some smooth jams on WFOG of course too!), but, you know, we just got back from Captain Freedom Haircuts so we don't really wanna muss-up the new doos, doo we? Thrill rides at The Loop sounds like fun too, but, you know, the hair... so it's a toss up between seafood (again) at Moonraker (yep, I'm a James Bond fan), or getting our picture taken in a similar manner as the couple in the Buccaneer Lounge photo-- what a treasure! And since we're dressed in our best duds courtesy of Ivey & Tharp, we might be forced to skip the sweaty mustache fest at Noah's aka "The Funkiest Place in Town", and settle for a late night show at the Lido Inn --cuz the guy onstage looks like he's really tearing it up! Go, man, go!

We hope you enjoyed our little trip back in time, check in with AEET regularly for more excursions through the decades of our wonderfully colorful, fashionable past! And hey, before you go, be sure to stop by the offices of Where It's At and say hi to editors Chuck and Don, --you never know, they might be able to help you make your big splash into film or advertising!

The Isle of Capri ad reminds me of the big poster and marker color by number sets that K-Mart used to sell.

Haha, that might be EXACTLY what that is! :)

Seeing these makes me feel too homesick.

Here's what a local shopping mall in my town had for an ad I love!

I also miss "Beautiful Music" stations too.

I think El Greco looks pretty good, man. Having just one waiter at a time never quite measures up to my fantasy of being a mob don in a tiny Mediterranean neighborhood. Also pretty sure one of those editors is Tom Savini.

The Ivey & Tharp (sounds like villains from a Barbarian movie) ad is great.

Those threads just bring the chicks you not only crawl in on their knees, but worship you from your pelvis level, as they should for a man dressed like that.

Does he revel in it? Of course not! He barely knows they are there! There's more where that came from, but only one him!

Who was their clientele? Elitist douchebags???

Note: Woman without Farrah Fawcett hairdo. A rare unicorn!

Good stuff, Chris!

>one of those editors is Tom Savini

the other might be Jeff Lynne

>The Ivey & Tharp (sounds like villains from a Barbarian movie) ad is great.

everything about the guy in that ad just reeks of the type of pompous twat character you'd see on some 70's British show... the girl in the dotted dress is quite beautiful

Methinks Isle of Capri is owned by the same mustachioed, bespecled, hat wearing dude as Pascals.

I seriously love these ads. And holy crap I love WFOG!! I would listen to that station morning noon and might!

I think I'd have to hit Noah's too, if those illustrated daning girls are any indication of the good times to be had there.

And I think that if we hit the small fry rides at The Loop our bouffants should survive just fine.

Oh and I'm eating at Peking after I get a tube top at Canned Heat.
