The Lineman's Club was a bar at 1619 East 14th (International). Russ Fassio owned it from 1954 until his death in 1985. The bar was frequented by PG&E workers, as well as players of the Oakland Raiders.

Fassio died in 1985. His sons and wife tried to keep it going, "...but really, the bar was my dad. So we ended up selling it." 1

The distinctive utility-pole shaped sign outlasted the business, but fell into disrepair. In 2013, it was restored and moved to the IBEW 1245 union hall in Vacaville. 1
