If I remember correctly, Germain Toyota sits where After the Gold Rush used to be. Chris Miller (?) was one of the owners he was (is?) also the owner of Zeno's.

Screaming Willies East used to be an A&P store (next to Rink's Bargain City).

Screaming Willies North used to be an Ontario supermarket only store (now Value City).

Charlie Bear's used to be in the old Kroger store at Great Eastern.

Dixie Electric Co. is now Big Lots at Great Western. I think it was a variety store. Probably Kresge or Woolworth.

Don't remember Peppermint Tiger.

I still have a shot glass from R & R. A couple coworkers and I were there, and some busty pint-sized chick comes around with them in a bandolier on her torso, asking if we want to buy one. The other two say no, I said sure, as long as I get to take it out of the holder. Ok, she says with a big smile and sticks her boobs way out. Took me awhile to work it out, on purpose of course. My fellas were falling out all over the place, sick that they didn't think of it. Best money I spent that week.

Remember the chick who got out on the freeway near ATGR, then got flattened by a semi? Probably '82 or '83. I think they closed not too long after that.

He has a wife named Yolanda L Smith. LOL

Again reminding me what a buddy of mine says - No matter how good looking someone is, someone's tired of effing them.

If you want to see remnants of the band....they play Sundays at the Rumba Cafe near campus on Summit.....they have 3 horn players still.
It is called the hoodoo soul band.....

The guitar player plays with the Hipnotics and a horn band called Conspiracy....

Guido's Speakeasy was a good place for jazz!
Located across the street from the convention center before it was built!
The late Vince Andrews played there on Friday and Saturday evenings.
