http://www.flickr.com/photos/bryanaustin/5962... these are the pictures that i could find... They are on Flickr. Apparently, these guys got in through a back door. They got a lot if nice pics. They are pretty weird to look at though. Let me know if they bring back any memories. For me they sure do...

I remember the Burger King had a bathroom upstairs.

I also remember a boatload of money was spent on that mall remodeling then after that wall collapsed at Montgomery wards it seemed like in no time the mall was closed. Too bad.

Was that before or after he ran the gay male escort business in Florida where he made his money?

There is no pizza ever that tasted like the old Gino &joes pizzeria there. I remember going there as a kid & getting a slice with pepperoni & a grape fountain soda with crushed ice. Never forget how that pizza tasted.

I was kidding. Sarcasm sometimes doesn't translate well. The bass pro shop is going into the riverside center.
