Stiller's Antique Bizzare was a bar and grill in Hotel Aggie in business from around 1968 until the early 1980s, replacing Debo's Pizza, and in turn replaced by La Esperanza. It had great food, especially "Bobby's Chilli", a BIG basket of fries, onion rings, big bar burgers, and pizza. It was also quite dark, with candles in wine bottles on long, heavy tables, with benches. As the name suggests, the place was decorated with curiosities of olden times.
Rene's picture hung behind the bar.
Founded by Don Frank, later owned by Milt & Jane Eberle, who owned the hotel.
They hosted lots of music, including: The Family Tree (Law School), Scott van Ling, The Vet School Band. R. (truckin') Crumb playing his banjo. Bill Mahoney and many more. Open mike nights, movies Sunday nights. A post outside the front door rowdies got wrapped around.
And if the nightly musical talent wasn't sustaining your interest, there was a selection of board games and pool tables.
Where the Grad is: Jekel & Hydes? A lounge on Olive Drive with a padded door.
