Yes, the floor probably had that general uneven feel even then. But the steamers hadn’t yet aged well enough, and they hadn’t yet perfected the Doritos-cheese-peppers recipe. No Dave Matthews and Tommy Tuberville filling up the jukebox or the newspaper clippings on the wall. Less graffiti. More salad bar.
