Club Tee Gee Celebrates 60th Anniversary!

“This month Club Tee Gee, 3210 Glendale Blvd., celebrates 60 years of doing business on Glendale Blvd.here in Atwater Village. The business was originally opened in 1946 by owners Joe Grzybowski and Neal Tracy, and has had the name Club Tee Gee ever since (Tee for Tracy and Gee for Grzybowski).

 

In 1962 Joe was introduced to an outgoing young girl in her 20s who lived with her family in Atwater. Her name was Betty Bartlotta and she was working as a secretary at another business on Glendale Blvd. Betty and Joe became close and eventually became business partners in Club Tee Gee. Sadly, Joe suffered a fatal heart attach in 1984 and died, but Betty continued running the Club.

Over many years Club Tee Gee has survived, providing a friendly “Cheers-like” neighborhood place to meet and have a cocktail. Today, Betty still can be found at the Club most evenings, assisted by new partner Bob Kick. As well as running Tee Gee, Betty serves as Vice-President of the Atwater Griffith Park Chamber of Commerce and also the local Lion’s Club.

Stop by Club Tee Gee and have a drink, and congratulate Betty and Bob for keeping the Club part of our community”
