RONALD SUKENICK (1987):
MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village was not so different in 1948 from what it would be if you fast-forwarded all the way to 1984. In thirty-six years Minetta's would still be there, and the Kettle of Fish too, if soon to close...
Ronald Sukenick, Down and In, Collier Books, 1987, p. 18.
The bar called the Kettle of Fish was the hangout. The biggest reason was that you didn't have to go too far to get there. We used to hang out there day in and day out... We really enjoyed that place. The White Horse was a hangout and later the Lion's Head. The Limelight was a big gathering place also... But it was really the Kettle of Fish where all the ideas, gossip, songs, and friendships were exchanged...
