Remember in when Henry Hill's talking about how he and the other gangsters used to take their wives out on Friday nights? They'd go out for a nice dinner, and maybe there'd be a band playing; Saturdays, he continues in VO over a Copa party in full swing, were for the girlfriends — and all that that implies. Well, we can't help you with the go-go Saturday bacchanals, but if you want to see what those Fridays were like, thirty- or forty-odd years back, you can step through a small rip in the time-space continuum and find yourself in Nick's Seashore Restaurant.
Attached to the Sea Breeze Motel in Pacifica's Rockaway Beach, Nick's is a full-service restaurant and cocktail lounge that's been in the same family since 1927. The last remodel looks like it might've been in the late 60s, in a Sort of Vaguely Nautical/Mobster theme, but that's part of the charm of the place.
