I recently purchased a small group of signed and inscribed Shuttle astronaut portraits. Once they arrived, I discovered that they once had hung on the wall of the well-known astronaut hangout called Pe-Te's Cajun BBQ located near JSC.

Does anyone have any photos of the place they are willing to share? I'm especially interested in photos of the wall where the astronaut photos once hung, but would like to see some shots of the general interior and exterior.

Also, I'd like to see pictures or scans of anything like menus, placemats or the like.

Have any of you been there and have any stories to tell? Thank you for anything you'd be willing to share.

Regards,
Mikie

Pe-Te's was actually located right across from Ellington Field, down Highway 3 from JSC. When I working for NASA 5+ years ago, the place had lost some of its personality, but was still a favorite of NASA folks, especially George Abbey and his followers. NASA pics hung pretty much everywhere inside, but unfortunately I don't have any pictures. It closed a few years ago from what I heard.

Cheers,

Kevin

It's also mentioned by "Dick Gordon" while in quarantine during the Apollo 12 segment in FTETTM

Oh, yeah, good call! I'd forgotten about that ...
