Life was very uncomplicated then. You didn't need to be computer literate or politically correct, (what a joke). You knew that "Johnny U to Berry," was beautiful thing, that the only vacuum cleaner worth having wore #5. When you heard "Ain't the Beer Cold," you knew there was only one beer to put on ice - Natty Bo. It was easy to tell right from wrong, good from evil - and the only thing more evil than the Green Bay Packers were the New York Yankees.
Baltimore had everything back then. The heathens from out of state didn't even know what a Steamed Crab was, (they would have probably ruined Jimmy by washing him down with a Schlitz anyway). We had "Boogie and the Dinner Guys," the Buddy Dean Show, and WCAO, (600 on the dial). Though no one realized it at the time, the little 5,000 Watt station was launching a revolution right through our transistor radios and amped up car speakers. WCAO was dispensing Rock and Roll, and Rock and Roll had one King - Elvis Aaron Presley.
We celebrated our glorious victories with ice cold Bo, and thought it would never end, and in doing so, we somehow let our guard down. We left Baltimore's door open to opportunists - outsiders mostly, both corporations and individuals motivated by greed at the expense of quality and tradition. These twentieth century pirates named Irsey, Jacobs, and G. Heileman came by the light of day but left under the cover of darkness taking with them a large part of the heart and spirit of our city.
Today the Orioles are a second rate ball club, Natty Bo is... different, and the Colts & Elvis are gone - except at Nacho Mama's, thanks to Scunny.
Scunny & Elvis go way back… so the opening of Nacho Mama’s on Elvis’s birthday in 1994 was no coincidence. Nacho Mama's in Canton, quickly became Baltimore's number one spot for Tex-Mex fare and a hell of a good time, (as long as you follow the House Rules)! Natty Boh served in a bottle, Margaritas, (the best in town) - and even occasional Elvis Sightings make Nacho Mama's the place to come for nostalgia & fun.
