Remember 15 cent ice cream cones at Thrifty in Riverpark???? I’m sounding damn old now, but –
With inflation, that 1978-1979 15 cent ice cream cone should be like $1.60 now I am guessing. However, try to find any ice cream for under $4.00, I challenge you. Why’s ice cream so expensive these days? It’s people who go and spend $6 at cold stone creamery who has made the cost go up and caused the credit crisis. Same people who had to have 52" flat panels in every room of their house.
I miss Perry’s Deli, best darn sandwiches anywhere. Anywhere I tell you!
Word of warning:
If you live in California still, cherish your deli sandwiches. They’re so fresh and wholesome. Not so on the East Coast. Who wants to eat a “Hoagie” ? <rolling eyes> Damn you, you can get your sandwiches on Sourdough. It’s not fair!
Say HI to the Sonoma Cheese Factory for me. However, last time I was there, you can’t watch them make cheese there any longer!
Now a church, what a waste! I worship movies…. LOL
Rentals picked up and we hired another person to run the video rentals and I became assistant manager. I had a ball there, selling tickets, talking with customers about the movies. I forgot to mention that this is one of the HUGE old theaters with a Giant screen. I even enjoyed closing and cleaning up the theater at midnight all alone. I’d crank up the music in the theater and go to work.
In the 80’s, I was the assistant manager in high school.
I was “Lured” away from the Sound Connection where I was their Video Manager. Video rentals were just starting to take off. We rented BETA too! Blockbuster wasn’t even around yet, they didn’t start until 1985. Anyway, I moved to The Uptown theater and started their video rental department from scratch. They let me choose the stock of rentals; as a future film school student, I was in heaven.
