The place was over priced.

I'll take a pizza at OE anytime over Pacchia.

I am sure some very nice place will take over the space vacated by Pacchia.

Sometimes I wonder if the "price" isn't set to keep out the "bonehead factor".

I am sure we will see one more "used clothing store" in it's place.

And if Pizza is what you want, why would you think that Pacchia would cater to that crowd? That was never thier demographic.

Blue Moon is gone as well.

Gem City Records.......gone.

Is that what you like seeing at Oregon?

Empty Buildings?

When I go to Oregon, it's to see and hear live music, and to have a really nice meal would be great.

What's left?

Every time I went to Pacchia I had to be assaulted with Jazz. I hate Jazz, it reminds me of the old Bob Brawn show.

Really Doc, I didn't think you frequented Dayton any longer. You said you were moving since it was riddled with crime and corrupt cops.

Pacchia was over priced. Plain and simple.
Gem City leaving wasn't a shock; blame the local WalMart and Meijer, where CD's are cheap.

The Oregon District will not close down, show's what you really know about it.
But the Oregon didn't need Pacchia. Bad service, overpriced food is not what brings folks to that fine area.
Great art. Great music. Great people.

I have many a friend that live in the District and I support them. They will find another tenant to replace Pacchia. Thank goodness. The Nite Owl closed and Blind Bob's filled it's void...it's doing quite nicely, isn't it?

Speakin' before your spoken to.
It's about Dayton. You know, the town you loathe.

Perhaps you're right Dew,
I am sure that "small buisness" is just chomping at the bit to get into Gem City Records and Pacchia.

As for Dayton, yes I left. I am free to travel to hear "live music" and often do. Oregon Express is one of my favorites, as is Gillys and Canal Street.

Since YOU live in Dayton, is that the only place YOU exist? Do you never leave it's bounderies?

Yes, Meijer and Wal-Mart are fine if what you want is "well known". Try and find anything that's "off the beaten track". They are so very helpful. For instance, Dannica Patrick has a website with a great song, try finding it at either location.

I thought your bar of choice was at the corner of Rip Rap and Fishburg?
Last I heard you didn't frequent the Oregon District.

I don't loathe Dayton.

I did say "When seconds count, the cops are there in minutes".

You have really gotten kind of mean Dew,

"Speakin' before you're spoken to."

I was just speaking about a place where you could have a cup of coffee and read the paper outside, at a table in the Spring.

I guess if all you desire is to slam down beer and eat pizza, Pacchia was never the place for you anyway.

Doc, please pick a side of the fence.

You stated many many times that you immensely disliked Dayton and you were getting out. Said you were moving to greener pastures. Said crime was high; cops were bad. You taking that all back???

And puhlease, I'm mean? OK, got it. No matter what; anytime and anywhere that I post something and you or one of your friends post, I am the meany. Got it. Thanks for the heads up.

You put words in my mouth. I didn't say all I wanted to do was eat pizza and drink beer. It's called being social. Enjoying others company. You couldn't do that at Pacchia. They wanted you to eat and leave. And I'm not the only one who felt that way; my friends that live in the District agree. That's why we'd meet up at OE then walk the district and see old friends. And Pacchia was overpriced.$3.75 for coffee?? You're ok with that? Come on.

Fishburg and Rip Rap? You mean Jackass Flats? Uh no, I didn't frequent that facility. Too far for my liking. We went once to ride with some friends from Troy on the bike. That's it.

Contrary to your belief, I don't "hang" out with people I meet online. See, you just can't trust some people. They say one thing, do another. I have plenty of friends to do things with, thank you very much.

You were just speakin' to start a fight, I got that. Wonder when your "99" will show up....

Haven't been to Pacchia in five years. It has been a year since we were at Coco's on Wayne Avenue.

We don't go downtown Dayton after dark anymore. Crime and panhandlers is a huge problem at this point. We even gave up our season tickets to the Dragon's for that same reason. Sure crime is moving into the suburbs but I haven't seen gangs roaming the streets like they do downtown nor do I see drug deals taking place on our streets. I am sorry they closed if only for the employees that are out of jobs.

Heck Figlio's at Town and Country makes a decent pizza if you want something other than the so boring ordinary ones out there.

I find it odd that of all the times I've been downtown, after dark, I've never been bothered but you have.

Every Dragons game I attended I never had issues with anyone bothering me, my spouse or my children.

We went to just about every single festival downtown and never had problems.

I don't know what 'gang' you are referring to but they haven't been downtown when I've been there.

I did see a drug deal happen at 3rd and Main once. And for that matter, I saw a drug deal in the parking lot at WalMart in Washington Twp.
Just a few weeks ago, I saw one at the Greene. No joke. It's pretty obvious what's going down, you have to know what to look for.

Downtown gets a bad rap because some people want to see it as bad. The suburbs are just as bad; try checking out the Chevy Chase Apts in Centerville. A friend of mine is a Centerville police officer. He has stories that would amaze all who think NOTHING happens in their city.

Every city has it's panhandlers and homeless. Rather than bitching about them, maybe doing something to help them would be more beneficial.

some people? I guess Dayton OH is number 20 on the list of most dangerous cities in America by mistake? Maybe they meant Dayton Missouri. Get your head out of your butt. The suburbs don't come close to the violent crime rate in Dayton.

Get your thumb outta your butt...I said DOWNTOWN.

And yes, the suburbs have just as much crime, you just don't see it printed in your daily rag and on the nightly news.

Duh.

If he wants to hide under a blanket and stay in the suburbs let him. Dayton doesn't need people like that.
I wonder if he is aware who is selling most of the drugs in Dayton? People from the suburbs. Same with the johns picking up the hookers.
They've always thought they were better than anyone anyway. Someday they will find out they aren't.

Are you really that naive, or just playing, or perhaps you just can't admit when you're wrong?

The rating of violent crime is based on police reports, not news reports. Dayton has a serious violent crime problem, and that includes DOWNTOWN. You like Dayton, fine. You don't like other people here at topix fine. You sure do look stupid though denying the truth just because you don't like the person who posted it.

Well Dew,

Sorry not to have gotten back to you sooner.
But you seem to have not only "read my mind" but responded as well.

No honey, I did move out. I am no longer in Dayton.
And I still believe the Police Force in Dayton has real problems.

I think that all of your time spent at the Oasis did make you kind of mean.

I can't have a different opinion?

Not without "lighting your fuse" I guess.

You said, and I quote, "The place was over priced.

I'll take a pizza at OE anytime over Pacchia."

Now we seem to have "Rules of Crime".

If you're not in Oregon or Canal St.......and there is nothing going on at Victoria or Schuster....what are YOU doing DOWNTOWN?

I said the Oregon district is suffering because of the lack of diversity that places like Pacchia gave it.

No one has ever made me buy anything there, or pulled me in against my will. I maintain that when the more upscale places leave Oregon, it will suffer as a result.

But let's hope you are right. Perhaps Gem City and Pacchia will be replaced by Noble Romans and Panera Bread.

I won't hold my breath.

I am not sitting around looking for drug deals. Usually when I go somewhere, I have some point to the trip.

I am sure you took a picture with your cell phone and got license numbers and gave all the information via the cell phone about a crime in progress.

I know you wouldn't just "SIT THERE".

Drug Deals indeed.

Pacchia is leaving....the doors are closed.

Gem City Records as well.

Good thing you know all the cops. I am sure it makes being "Social" much easier.

Don't get mad at me DewDrop, I didn't make Dayton what it is....I left. You go right ahead and make it better.
