1889 – Nintendo Koppai (Later Nintendo Company, Limited) is founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi to produce and market the playing card game Hanafuda.

Skipped to:
Nintendo was founded as a card company by Fusajiro Yamauchi on September 23, 1889.[8] Based in Kyoto, the business produced and marketed a playing card game called “Hanafuda”. The handmade cards soon became popular, and Yamauchi hired assistants to mass-produce cards to satisfy demand.[9] In 1949, the company adopted the name Nintendo Karuta Co., Ltd.[b], doing business as The Nintendo Playing Card Co. outside Japan. Nintendo continues to manufacture playing cards in Japan[10] and organizes its own contract bridge tournament called the “Nintendo Cup”.[11] The word Nintendo can be translated as “leave luck to heaven”, or alternatively as “the temple of free hanafuda”.[12][13]

1931 – Hilly Kristal, American businessman, founded CBGB (d. 2007)
Hilly Kristal (born Hillel Kristal[1]; September 23, 1931[2] – August 28, 2007) was an American club owner and musician who was the owner of the iconic New York City club, CBGB, which opened in 1973 and closed in 2006 over a rent dispute.[3]

Early years
Kristal was born in New York, New York in 1931 but his family moved to Hightstown, New Jersey when he was an infant.[4][5] He studied music from a young age and eventually attended the Settlement Music School in Philadelphia. Kristal also spent a period of time in the Marines.[5]

Venturing into music
He moved back to New York City, where he worked as a singer, appearing on stage in the men’s choral group at Radio City Music Hall. He later became the manager of the Village Vanguard, a jazz club in Greenwich Village, where he booked Miles Davis and other musicians.

He married in 1951 and had two children: Lisa Kristal Burgman and Mark Dana Kristal.[6]

In 1966 he and Ron Delsener co-founded the Rheingold Central Park Music Festival, sponsored by Rheingold Beer. By 1968, Delsener had changed beer sponsors to Schaefer and Kristal was no longer involved. The festival took place every year until 1976 in Central Park and featured superstars from all music genres, including Miles Davis, the Who, Chuck Berry, Bob Marley, B.B. King, Led Zeppelin, the Beach Boys, Frank Zappa, Ray Charles, Patti LaBelle, Ike & Tina Turner, Fleetwood Mac, the Allman Brothers, Slade, Kris Kristofferson, Curtis Mayfield, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith and the Doors.

In 1970, Kristal opened a bar in the Bowery section of New York called “Hilly’s on the Bowery”, which closed within a couple of years. Then in December 1973, he created “CBGB and OMFUG”, an abbreviation for the kinds of music he intended to feature there (the letters stood for “Country, BlueGrass, Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers”).[6] The club, eventually called simply CBGB, became known as the starting point for the careers of such punk rock and new wave acts as the Ramones, Talking Heads, Patti Smith, Television and Blondie.

CBGB featured many famous musicians over the years and remained very popular until its closing in 2006 due to a personal disagreement with the landlord, who opted not to renew the lease. For a short while after the closing, Kristal considered moving the club to Las Vegas.[7]

Kristal died on August 28, 2007 from complications of lung cancer, aged 75.[6]
