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 Park Place Pharmacy?

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

AllStars was where I got all my pogs and baseball cards. What the hell was the point of pogs. They also had that awesome candy machine thing with the arm that I wasted lots of $ on.

Put the fields in my post too. My brother played on those fields. There's only that one left now. Well, 2 if you count the ones on the corner.

I remember Jay Thomas being a DJ on WAYS AM 61 (now 610 AM) Big WAYS. He's been in a few TV shows, notably Eddie on Cheers....

Before it was Mid-Town Square it was Charlottetown Mall...the theater is where we used to go see midnight movies like Rocky Horror Picture Show. And do acid. :)

Yep, got lost there when I was a kid.

Wasn't it like inside SP? Like you could get into it through the mall?

SPEAKING of that, remember when they had the cafeteria at South Park? Man, I loved that place! Yeah it was a little grungy and grimey but it was straight southern cafeteria food and you go through the line with your little tray surrounded by old people. good times.

Also, they don't have music stores in SP anymore. There used to be atleast 2 CD/DVD/Media Play-type stores in there.
