So sad, feeling waterworks over here, too! The Old Pro was the hottest spot to meet single jocks downtown and the best place to hear sports yelling on a Tuesday night. Many a friend has been made over tinkles at the trough-style urinal, and the hot & wild Palo Alto nightlife won't be the same without the crowded, dad-friendly atmosphere it provides.

Friends of the Palo Alto Anarcho-primitivist Reading Club, please check our social media for our new meetspot while Old Pro towels off.

It took the Fire Dept over 30 minutes to turn off the water!?

The City of Palo Alto must not issue many restricted use placards as this one still has the 415 area code for a Palo Alto Building Dept. phone number! 650 began in 1997.
