During the early 1990s, Rob Rutar spent nearly every night at the 49’r, the now-defunct Dodge Street bar.
He and a friend would meet up for drinks, claiming the easy chairs on the stage when they could. Among Rutar’s circle of friends, it became tradition to drink champagne at the 49’r between wedding ceremonies and the subsequent reception.
