Today there are no functioning businesses left in the town itself (the cafe, mislabeled as "The 7-Up Cafe" in the accompanying photo, has closed its doors), though a fellow who goes by the name "Pete" or "Pidgeon Pete" can hook visitors up with cold beer from his private stock. The Rainbow Club, a combination bar, liquor store, and restaurant, sits just outside the city limits and is open seven days a week.
