replied to: Ron.. it was the ORIGINAL Copp's back in…

I worked at Copps at nights. I was there the night the big tornado hit and devasted Eau Claire. National Guard came in. I remember hiding in the walk in refer, then seeing the power lines dangling and sparking from inside the front door, then getting a ride home, and not being able to see my hand in front of me because of the power outage, flicking my lighter to get home, and then finding nobody home. Very eery night.

Shakey's Pizza brings back many memories of birthday parties in the 60's and early 70's - silent movies on the big screen, darkly lit, bench seating, great pizza's and endless pitchers of coke and root beer so good so good so good

How about the Bluegold Room in the late 60's and early 70's. Played baseball behind Campus School and then went to the Bluegold room where we bought cokes for ten cents, played pinball, and hung out in the cool inside from the humidity. Simple times.

Here's some other fun places from the 70's

Trader and Trapper Night Club - Dance Club/Pool Bar - Live Bands...
The Oar House Tavern on Water Street
The Old Home Bar - I once drove my car a mile with an empty case of old milwaukee beer bottles on the top of my car to cash in on recycle and buy another case. Was wondering why everyone was honking and made it all the way there without the case falling off the top of the car. LOL!
