SLIM'S
Live Music Nightclub Owned By Boz Scaggs

Boz explaining the delay in the opening of Slim's Nightclub originally scheduled to open June 23, 1988 with an opening week bill that included Otis Rush (with Scaggs, under the nom de plume of Presidio Slim, sitting in) and Ornette Coleman...

"The escrow didn't close and, therefore, the liquor license and the assets didn't transfer to Slim's, and we were on just a hairline schedule to get open on time
anyway, as these things go. I mean, we planned way, way out in advance and gave ourselves a month leeway. We had a month to be finished. I mean, we
planned to be finished an entire month to just fine-tune it. And, as things go, we just got right down to the wire. It seemed to me that we were going to make it. Then I left for Japan about 10 days ago and while I was away this thing didn't transfer. And we had to hold up construction; we couldn't construct it - the permits wouldn't allow us to. It just didn't make any sense to commit. We haOpd about $150,000 committed to this particular phase of construction and we just cannot go ahead and do that until we legally have the place. That's what happened. When I came back from Japan it had been delayed to the point that we had an emergency session and decided that we simply cannot open. We had to cancel all the acts. It's just a monumental bummer...It's one of the saddest things that's ever happened to me. I just don't ... I'm heartbroken." - Boz Scaggs
