    I don’t know if this has been mentioned before, but how about the little Korean restaurant at Lane and High? All you could see from the street was a sort of gate. Then you’d squeeze through a narrow gap between buildings to get to the door.

    I remember that spot. Lived pretty close back in my campus days. They had great wonton soup.

    Via, this site on 80’s college rock a wonderful 2 part report from a very beige WBNS News on the Cocteau Twins playing at the Newport in 1985. Curt Schieber features prominently. Can anyone ID any of the audience members interviewed at the show?

    Oh man, Lou Forrest! I don’t remember the 10TV news music sounding that weird. I guess I just took it at face value at the time.

    -Old COSI – Spent many a Girl Scout “Camp-In” there…
    -Old South Campus – Should have just been cleaned-up and renovated instead of the Gateway
    -The original Basement bar in German Village downstairs from a fancier restaurant (I forget which one – and there is a new bar of the same name, but not the same)
    -Thurman’s when it was just a local hangout and not an overcrowded tourist destination
    -The original train station downtown (before my time – but I still can’t believe the arches are all that are left, and have seen pictures can’t believe it was torn down and we have a bar called “Union Station” to commemorate it and one arch left!)
    – Papa Joe’s bar!
    – Max & Erma’s with the phones at the tables and the fire-pole!
    – Baby Doe’s restaurant where the business is now across from the Quarry apartments – Used to have fabulous all you can eat buffets for happy hour and the best people watching in town!

    The pole in the restaurant was in Engine House No. 5 in German Village and the bar underneath was The Spot
    -owned by the Chuck Muer group out of Michigan -who ran Gandy Dancer in A squared and had numerous restaurants in Cleveland, Toledo, wealthier Detroit suburbs as well as other locations. Members of the family perished at sea-in the early 90s

    Max and Erma’s had phones at the table(except in The Village-the original location) starting with the one that was on Brice Road-

    What is the Brice Rd. location now? I hear the phones were a good way to meet girls, but I was young enough when I was in there that the only conversations that I would have had over the phones would have been about the Ninja Turtles.

    Re: Max and Erma’s-
    The Brice Road location is either abandoned or torn down completely I believe.

    The Columbus Mine Shaft, or Baby Does as it was once called. I work in the building that replaced the restaurant. Never went there when it was open. Off 5th Ave and Lakeshore Drive.
