I'm pretty sure you were hatched.
Is that because you were somehow involved, how else would you know that

You could smoke inside South Park
Midtown Square was Charlottetown Mall (with the DMV that was always empty)
49 by the university was 2 lanes
Independence was just a regular road and had Quincy's and the almighty Krispy Kreme at Hawthorne

Central Park Barber Shop on Central Ave before it turned into little mexico
Tatsis on Graham st (it's actually still there), and PJ's on Sugar Creek

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.

schaefer and the eggman was on magic 96.1 werent they?
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....
remember when there was midtown square instead of the target and all that stuff? and there was a movie theater over there?
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.
remember when south park mall was the actual south park mall and not the piece of poo it is now?
Yep, got lost there when I was a kid.
remember when you could go ice skating at eastland and not have to worry about being shot?
How about Farrells in Eastland? That place was the poo for birthday parties

Remember when they filmed Shallow Hal in Charlotte?
I do. One of the scenes is in my parents neighborhood. They are all over Charlotte in that movie.
Juwanna Man was filmed here too.
