It was fun while it lasted. Brown women smell and feel different. Been there, done that. White is right for me now.

Guess I was burning the match stick at both ends. I had an eventful and and busy youth.

Remember the fun down at Talbott Village, Broadripple, and Holliday Park? Free love and pot baboy!

I remember cruising all of the "massage" parlors on West US 40 in the 70's. I was at one when the Blizzard of 78 hit. I remember trying to set a girl on a sink and it broke and water squirting out all over us. HAd a hard time getting it fixed during the snow storm. Had to trade some yellow bird to get someone out.

Fond memories of the good ole days.

Wish I could relive some of them.

I do! I met a lot of important people and established many political connections in this manner at those establishments. Good times!! No one would thump you on the head for an attempt at getting some love when you got the fever!!! A man could garner respect just by having a good head on his shoulders. And,it was so easy to get ahead back then!!
Those were the days!
I miss those places so much.
Now all you can do is hang out in the bathroom at the gym and get a workout.

I just have this feeling that you are the epitomy of "pansy". I may be wrong, but that not likely.

Undertakers ( dont know what they are called these days) cringe every time one of these types kick. Family won't pay the bill and always touching the body. Only time they are ever church members is when a clan member dies so they church can either donate to the funeral or feed the bunch.
Cant they just sit in the corner and cry like everyone else?
Clarification Please?

<quoted text>Wow. I forgot Lindner's. And I didn't cruise Al Greens's but went there with mom and dad. What was the name of the place on 10th St., something like Harolds or Steer Inn? I think. It was a greasy spoon type place. Good food though.
The Steer Inn! My grandparents lived 2 blocks north of it. I saw in on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives recently. We used to eat lunch there pretty often.

I remember the food was really good, but you could cut the smoke with a knife. LOL

I remember the chocolate,cherry, and vanilla coke! My parents even went there as teenagers. It was one of the hangouts of the day. Does any remember the Virginia Grill? I am not sure when it closed, but we used to eat there with my grandparents. I was really young, but still remember what the place looked like.

Google - Indianapolis Restaurant Postcards - A friend of mine found it. Pictures of Knobby's and Hong Kong Inn and several others. Be sure to read the posts/comments below. Seems folks have fond memories of these places.

Thanks, I will check it out. On another note, a few years ago, I was going through an old barn and found half of a metal sign from the Tee-Pee, and the canoe that was outside. I didn't see the other half of the sign, but it is probably there too.

I had kind of forgot about The Fireside South, and the Key West Shrimp House. I was probably only in each a couple of times, but remember how good it was.

To go to Key West Shrimp House was something special. Last time I saw it .....it was bad. I don't even now if the building is still there. I saw a picture of the Huddle. Forgot about it. The kids now don't understand how Indy was then.It was such a simple, Leave It To Beaver, kind of life. It was easy.

We also used to go to the KWSH in Madison, IN if we were down there for anything. It was still open a few years ago, but it didn't seem as good as it used to.

Why don't you two bigots get a room?

It sounds like Indianapolis was heaven to yoo white milk, lily livered, plantation kids.

For the poor, the underclass, and the Blacks it was a completely different place.

It was fine and even great when we stayed in our ghettos, but step out and .....it was the Twilight Zone.

Blacks couldnt belong to the social clubs. Could not go to Riverside Amusement Park. Could not go to the beach clubs like West Lake and Long Acre.

My type was probably the servants to your type.

But no more. We have come a long way Baby and no hayseed is going to keep his boot on my neck.

We used to get pizza from a place on Shadeland, just south of 38th St. It was an A-frame like building, I think, and it seems like it was called Sam's. Then there was Greiner's Subs in that same area. I recently went to the only Greiner's left on S. Shelby St. and I recommend it highly. The regular Italian Sub, on french bread with vinegar, oil and italian seasoning sprinkled on top. How places like that didn't make it, and how tasteless Subway does is beyond me.

Why don't you take your miserable, meaningless whining someplace else. My normal childhood has nothing to do with yours. I have done nothing to you, or your family. I am talking about the 70s and 80s, and I do not remember any signs that said "Negroes Stay Out". I do however, remember the malls having signs prohibiting large, shoulder carried radios. What is your beef with me?
