Title: Walker's Wagon Wheel closes
Date: May 2000
Theme: Fairchild Culture

Description:
    Walker’s Wagon Wheel, the legendary Mountain View watering hole where semiconductor workers from line operators to top executives retired to celebrate the week’s successes, seek solutions to a yield bust, or look for a job, closed in May 2000. From its opening in 1962, “The Wheel” became a breeding ground for industry rumors that filled the pages of Don Hoefler’s weekly Microelectronics News.
