Both the 50-foot-tall neon joker that leers at passing traffic and the club it advertised date back to 1966, when LBJ was president, cigarettes were cool, and a guy named Waylon Jennings used to play at this country joint on the dusty western edge of town. This sad old sign is one of the few relics remaining from the days when Phoenix was still rough, rowdy and Western.
