DG,do you remember to old bike shop at w.41 and Lorain?Its still there going on a 100yrs. old.
They did close the old Roxy,one of your old haunts?
First of all, when I was in college, I used to live near the old Arena (downtown) when the Crusaders of the World Hockey League played. Cleveland Arena
My roommate used to go to the parking lot before games with a flashligh (to look "official") and direct a few cars, taking the $5 parking fee himself, until the security guards would finally catch on and chase him away. That paid for his dates on Friday nights...
I don't remember that old bike shop, but I was an east-side kind of guy. Grew up in the 'burbs (Richmond Heights).
Now the Roxy -- that's a whole 'nother story! If it's the theatre I think it is, well, I'd better not comment. Heh heh...
I also used to work for a restaurant down on Euclid Avenue about 14th Street called The Last Moving Picture Company, which was installed in what had been one of those great downtown movie theatres with the balconies and the wonderful chandeliers and all that. Can't remember the original theatre (The Palace? Something like that), and the restaurant is probably long gone. This was the early 70's.
