Walking around the boardwalk, which is actually two north-south paved pedestrian streets and several east-west short ones, I say several of those old honky-tonk bars that I remember, including Surfside.
But the one I really was looking for was the Silver Dollar Saloon. It was still there, I am happy to report. It opened for business back in the 1940s and hasn't changed a whole lot since then (though I didn't go inside this time.) It has gone through several owners of late.
We have spent many an evening in this place, including back in 1976 when we played "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" over and over so many times that folks asked us not to play it for awhile. There was also another song we played a lot called "North Carolina" I believe, by Dallas Frazier.
Glad It's Still There. --RoadDog
