Back in about '87 there was this book/toy store i THINK it was on I-Drive. ) and I guess i never really payed too much attention to the name. and Kilroy's Restaurant, And last (for now) how about the Inferno on the South Trail?
It had learning toys and games, and what I remember the MOST was right at the entrance of this store was a HUGE chess board on the ground accompanied with these HUGE chess pieces! That is how I found this site.....trying to figure out how to find out the name of that book/toy store. So hopefully someone knows & remembers what i'm talking about! I have a 4 yr old now myself & i wish he couldve enjoyed these places like I did! Two night clubs inside - don't remember the names but one was an oldies club that the group "Clutch" would perform and the other a strip club.
and Harold and Maud's (coffee shop where I had my first chai - now it's the Globe) And I also miss Mulvaney's Downtown.
KInda strange that UCFs homecoming parade is not downtown anymore. But one place is really in my mind and I hope you or any other "yelpers" can help me.
also saw on wikipedia that WCIX in Miami was a superstation in Florida. am a first-time poster and as a resident of Central Fl since 1977 this is a great thread! I barely remember even the name of this place, let alone what they had.
A lot of the store mentioned, with fondness, earlier in the thread were music stores. Also, since one dinner theatre was mentioned, we should also remember Sebastian's, which went kaput in '74 and reopened as The Phoenix, which also shortly went kaput. Amc theatre near fashion square mall-now summit church Ame's - Either took over from Zayre's or ??

Absolute Sound/Audio Garage - Cool place to hang out and look at all of the new sound equipment we wanted. The Fern Park institution will close soon, according to the Sentinel. The fillets were sort of lightly breaded with, not battered.
They had a very limited of gear, but I did buy my used 1979 Fender Delxue Reverb amp from them for around 0. One of the owner's/employees Ronnie Abney drove a kit car that tried to be a Porsche! Adolph's Aardvark - competition for the Infinite Mushroom Adolph's Aardvark in College Park-little hippie store, got my first black light. Adventure Club upstairs at Townsends Aha - I just caught my mistake. and coming soon Blockbuster and does anybody have an E Ticket.....
also don't think I saw Townsends Fish House and Tavern mentioned. I used to go there every Friday night after eating a delicious cuban dinner around the corner at a place on Orange Avenue. It went as far as cable systems in Tampa and Orlando. I read this all the way through and so many wonderful memories were revived and I learned a great deal about the background of places I hadn't been to but knew of and always wondered what they were!!

This is right down to the bottom of the hill I live on, and has been there for at least 36 years that I know of. I also did worked on the new interchage where I-4 and the East-West come together. We used to go after hours and drool over the cool collection of cars, I mean about the cool cars. Anyone recall a private property with a good bit of acreage that had a giraffe and other types of exotic animals in the front yard? Paul Revere and the Raiders played, and it was Orlando's second true rock concert (the first being the Beach Boys, I think, a year or so earlier? Anyone remember the name of the place that sold Zeta burgers? Anyway, I'm not that much help in this category.....unless someone mentioned Boardwalk and baseball... The interior had red lighting everywhere, statues of the holy mary on the walls, a wooden swing above the bar. The place had this mystique about it that was eerily cool and hip.. They eventually turned all the red lighting into blue lighting for a few months and then shut down for good.
and The Harem (the strip club) which made darn sure you weren't underage by every measure possible. Angel's-a 50s style diner with a lt of locations around the Orlando area. Colonial across the street from the Western Way Shopping Center. Another mentioned Herb's restaurant on the NE corner of 50 & 441... We were eating chips and nacho cheese (which was served in a nacho chip bowl.. Another resutarant I recall was the Sundown Resturant on the south OBT next's to Red's Market... I like the homey feel to the old fashioned video stores and I am a sucker for nostalgia. People would stop there all the time to pet the giraffe. Anyone remember Hot and Now...used to be everywhere. Man it was friggin cheap...5 cheese burges with fries and a large coke for .00. After that the next rock show was Canned Heat at the Sports Staduim (now gone) in East Orange County (north Econlockhatchee Traill. and on the trail that had the All-u-can-eat Crab Legs and Prime Rib.stuff! The bar itself was in the middle of the place and was surrounded by couches, high tops, etc. I used to take all my friends there and they always loved it.
Also, does anyone remember the name of the ice cream shop that was in the Seminole Plaza at 436 and 17-92?
My mom worked there for a couple of months in the early 80's and neither of us can remember the name of it. Artie Grindle's Tropic Traveler Vans Artie Grindle's Tropic Traveler.
