Fireside Lounge, 2322 El Camino Real, San Mateo, CA

The Fireside Lounge was run more on the Las Vegas model, if without the gambling. There was dinner and drinks to go with the dancing, sometimes a floor show, or topless dancers late at night. The object for a band was to keep people dancing so that they would buy drinks.(1)

Jerry auditioned here
August 1965 The Warlocks
According to Dennis McNally and Blair Jackson in The Illustrated Trip, The Warlocks played one or a few gigs at The Fireside Lounge in August of 1965. It was probably a sort of "audition" gig.(1)
