Re: “Exile on Grace Street

I remember that if you timed it right, during Saturday Night Live you could run down the fire escape of 808 Franklin street, pick up your pizza or stromboli at Roma Pizza (next to the Burger King) before the commercial break was done. While in high school, I slipped out of an event at the Cathedral and bought records at The Grammophone. In '77 Rockitz was called The Generator. I saw "Apocalypse Now" as well as Steve Segal's "Futurama" at the Biograph. The sub shop on Harrison was "Stuffy's", run by Max (Monroe?). Great subs that I have since learned were a complete rip of Blimpie's in NYC. right down to the steaming machines they used. What ever happened to the "Carriage House Book Shop"? That was my favorite book store in Richmond. A great little spot tucked in the alley. I also remember that we all thought it was the beginning of the end was when they built the Safeway on Harrison! When was that? 1980? Just think, in 30+ years all these new buildings will be starting to rot and the sleaze will creep back in. The Lee Art will become a nightclub and a former student will open a diner called Lums and serve fried chicken and chocolate milkshakes while playing Rocky Horror on the the flat screen in your booth.AND... Pot will be legal and for sale in all the original locations!
