Media Play

Yes. I made one of the worst concoctions known to man, and my dad made me eat it anyway because it cost like $18.

Allstars and Spoons, bitch.

Remember when Colony Road ended at Carmel?

Remember when South Park Mall had a Woolworth's and a Hovan?

Remember Wad's before it became a 90's version of a 50's diner?

Remember Park Place Pharmacy?

Remember EC Griffith and LC Caudle Little League fields on Randolph Rd?

Damn I used to spend my entire allowance at Media Play I used to think it was the best store known to man

I once bought a keyboard for 200 bucks on my way out of the store. Total impulse buy. I've played it like 10 times in six years.

Great thread...

Remember when cotswold had an actual indoors mall with a food court?

Remember when Eastland was the nice mall and southpark was a small mall?

Remember when the hwy 51 corridor was all farmland?

I remember old Cotswold...Spoons was there!

Some more:

-When Park Rd. was 2 lanes near South Meck and ended right at 51

-The area behind Raintree before 485 and all that crap development...I remember a lot of horse farms and stuff

-Lake Norman before the Peninsula was built...My family had a boat at the Boat Rack in the late 80s early 90s

-Field trips to the Eastland Mall ice rink

-The old movie theater that was behind South Park on the Barclay Downs side

when I think of more, I'll post em :)

nostalgic thread haha
