Teepee building. Teepee Cafe

Traveling through the southwest, eastbound on I-10, we took Business I-10 and encountered this pointed edifice on the western edge of town. There were no identifying names on the building so it appeared to be in the middle of an identity crisis. It had been a cafe and bar in some past life.

Teepee Bar/Cafe

Bowie's apex of fine dining is a teepee shaped building covered with gray checkerboard tarpaper, and I remember it being a bar back in my younger days-late sixties/early seventies. It sits on the main street, not far from the Wee Blew Inn (I'm not making this up), which seems to be populated by hard looking long haired men carrying beer cans and smoking cigarettes while leaning against their 1972 Buicks, where they are occasionally harassed by their blonde, mean girlfriends, who all appear to be wearing Lynyrd Skynyrd tee-shirts. In 1999 the teepee was still open, but the advertised price on the porkchop dinner was low enough to persuade us to eat dinner in Willcox instead.
