Greasy Tony's -- Sub shop near PV HS (Jones and Native know this place
. Lived there my junior and senior year.
Gordo's - Mexican buffet on Kolb.
Cowboys - Got shitfaced there more often (and harder) than anyplace during my early alcohol experimentation phase. The barber chair and Wild Turkey don't mix well (so to speak)
Whistle Stop - The first such place (but not the last, unfortunately) where I knew, without a doubt, that a topless dancer liked me for more than my stack of $1 bills. Sadly, I was mistaken. [Blue Note, Cabaret, and one other I can't recall the name were regular places I'd go with buddies to deposit my modest paychecks]
Palomino -- The "fancy" restaurant I went to for my Junior Prom.
Solarium (sp) -- the "fancy" restaurant for the Senior Prom
Jarome's for the Lamb Bandit. Enough said.
Wildcat House - Duh.
A sushi restaurant on the NW corner of Speedway and Wilmot that I can't remember the name of. Loved it.
El Torrito. Champagne brunch with my girlfriend (and subsequent wife) often. Had a friend who was a waiter who kept our glasses topped at all times. Still can't believe I managed to drive home after a couple of those visits.
Kinda related .... did anyone ever go to Sweetwater Fun Tubs on the far west side. It was place with a bunch of hot tubs in a wild desert setting, Would go there (early 80s) with a date for general relaxation and if I was super lucky, fornication. They used LOTS of chlorine.
