Anyone remember Budd's Bar and one of it's bartenders Mike Quiqley? He was my gym teacher at I.S.145.

he was my Dean at 145 :) and rumor has it he can be found at Legends on occasion, presumably as a patron.

I recall both the bar (good times) and the teacher (less than good times).

I think it closed in 2003-2004, i would still stop by after Mets games. That and O'Hanlon's on Roosevelt. If you go on facebook , they have a group dedicated to Budd's Bar. Some classic black & whites from the early 60's
