Rest In Peace, The Tote Hotel

For anyone in Melbourne, this was THE rock n' roll bar and venue. In the last year i got to the point where i would just go there in the knowledge someone i knew would be on the bar. This is a real loss for us in Melbs. The looming closure rumours came and went and no one could ever consider a replacement for it. It was nice to go back for one last time and drink with friends and soak up the memories. This bar will always hold a special place in my heart.

Thanks Bruce!
