Hey, Middletown. I've Been gone since Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. Jimmy Pieratt was my friend; along with his brother Scott, cousin Gordy, Bone Yard, the Horn's,(JB and Junior). At the Playtime on Central I was there when J. Farmer had to whip a loud mouth who liked calling ass on the wee folks. I remember Benny Dykes, the(Red headed giant) treated me with class. Gretchen Grubbs, Kirt spencer? Any of you know Gary Gross? Use to frequent all the hell hole bars mentioned herein. Jimmy Pieratt and I ran those streets all the way to 62--then after I joined the army he went his way and the rest is history--God bless

No Benny's sister's name was Debbie. There was another brother a few years older than Debbie, very studious and quiet. Speaking of Chuck Allen, he was a character. When I went to work at the Point I had NEVER heard anyone say the word F**k. I would hide in the back room when he came in. George told me to tell him to shut-up so I did. Then the whole bar would say shut up Chuck. Me and Chuck shared a glass of Mogan grape wine every morning after that, at about 5:30 AM. He was a sweetheart. I lived next door to the Crawford St. Grill when I was very young, the Pieratt's owned it so I knew them all a long time. Every body knows Doc Gibbs.He's almost as legendary as Benny. Didn't Jay Farmer die a few months ago? My brother went to the marines with Kenny Briscoe. He stayed with us a lot before they went in. Small world. I have to know you from back then. Remember Charley and Harley Gillie? and their beautiful sister Ruby? I think she was with Jay Hatton. They fought a lot too. You have brought back a lot of memories.
He had an older sister Peggy...younger sister Debbie, younger brothers Don(Les), Ronnie, and Jimmy...

I was there the night that Scott and Cooney got into fight.
It started in the restraunt (truck stop). Cooney sucker punched Scott when he came into the restraunt and then they went outside and Cooney had Scott up against a car and they fell and Scott landed on top of Cooney and started poking his eyes out. That's what I remember.

I dont know if you guys are still active on this page or not but Im looking for anyone who knew my great grandfather. He lived in Middletown during the later parts of his years but he was no stranger to the law so he probably fell in very well with the crowd you all are speaking of (no judgement here!!). He worked as a waiter in the Chili Parlor in 1957 and worked as a janitor for the King Pin Cafe (before it was the Rebel Inn, I think) in 1956 and lived with Mrs. Mary Boyd at 1603 Manchester Ave. He died in 1964. His name was Lawrence (or maybe Larry or Lee) Bell.

Thats funny how you can remember your 6th. grade teacher.I remember mine too, Mrs. Corwin she was about bald headed. I use to hang out at the Chatterdine when Jr Clayton owned it. I started drinking at Chatterdine, Got bored so I walked down to Chunky Hunky's to finish the nite. When I came out I couldn't find my car so I called police and reported it stolen. The next day I got a call saying they found my car parked in front of Chatterdine. That was a bad day for me. I remember Lee's. Lee Palmer owned it and the Madison Inn in West Midd. Tony Jack died a few yrs. ago. The old 900 Club was a nice place. I was barred out for life. Don't think I missed much though. have a good day.......
I would love to hear more about the 900 Club. Apparently one of my family members worked there in the late 50's. Any info/photos would be greatly appreciated.

I knew the Dykes family basically from infancy. The older brother you make reference to was named Les. The youngest son, Jim (my age; 60) told me that Les either played for or tried out for the old Cincinnati Royals back around 1962. Jim's (and Benny"s) mother & my grandmother were devout church goers, with Jim & I in tow. They went to the old Clayton St. Church of God (corner of Clayton & Plain).
