Capt Daves..?

Back in 06 went to PDC..found a cool little bar on 15th I think..Capt Daves..?..ran by a Englishman named Keith...had several good nights there (ex wasn't real fun! lol)

Anyone know if it's still around? Told him next time I'll bring an OU (Sooners) flag down...headed in June..Yes a long ways away but it'll be good to be back, kind of like going to the Rockies.

I got housed there more than once. Closed due to noise ordinance I think.

I believe Captain Dave passed away Jan. 21st in 2010. We sure had a lot of fun times with him after hours on 5th. You can now visit the Bad Boys Beach Club & pay tribute !!

My problem was being force fed tequila like I was a French Goose.

wow, sorry to hear...yes I was only there a few days but the man made ya feel like you were the king...unless ya wanted to watch the NBA playoffs vs soccer...lol.

Ah, yes, the tequila shots OUT OF THE BOTTLE...2 girls from Calf. were running around doing that.

I had heard about the bar here, I remember going and asking for a a good drink..new to the place, wife was being a bitch (ex now..last ditch effort to see if it would work)..he pours me a tall glass with about 3/4 vodka..and a splash of juice. I guess my face looked perplexed...lol.

He says take a taste..if not good no worries. Unfortunately, I didn't say it, just drank it...and another, and another....long walk home that night. After closing down and helping bring in the chairs.... Was a reg for the 10 days.

We all had some great times at Capt. Daves! Miss those times. But if you still want to bring down a Sooners flag, I (being from Oklahoma) would be proud to hang it in Wah Wah Beach Bar. Check out our Facebook page:

Yes, Capt. Dave (Dave Baker) passed away, too. His bar was/is Bad Boys, and one can pay tribute to him there. However, there was another bar in town, not on the beach, called Capt. Dave's, and it was owned by Keith, another beloved guy from Playa. One could possibly pay tribute to him at Kismet, just inside the arch in the Sian Ka'an biosphere. It is owned by his late wife, Mayte.

Is Kismet still there Sue? Thought I read about some things going down along that strip of beach and Mayte and Kismet was included.

I saw her at the VIDAS clinic, and she said things were "better." So...I hope so!

Sorry I got confused, I remember when we first met Dave it was probably many years ago when he just had that restaurant in town serving killer bisquits & that Tennessee gravy. We stayed in touch for the longest time. I also remember quite well Marshall from the Tequila Barrel too. And the Doctor who always wore white...ohh, the memories of PdC when it was smaller and everyone knew your name!!
