And of course...what about Turtles? If you remember them, then you remember the trading stamps and waiting for concert tickets. The most famous Turtles that people would know would be the one at Peachtree Battle.

I knew it well. My first job out of school in 1987 was on JCB right across from the CompUSA, and then I worked on Oakbrook Pkwy as all the high tech started coming up in that area.

I remember the "Turtle's Video" at the Southeast corner of Monroe & Piedmont.

I don't believe there was a "Blockbuster Video" then in existence. In California we had "The Wherehouse"...I don't think they were in Georiga (maybe?) but we also had "Licorice Pizza" for 33" albums in the late 70s.

The Stein Club in Midtown back when that stretch of Peachtree between about 4th and 9th streets was desolate.

Loved that bar. I was there the night OJ was trying to flee in his Bronco.

I remember growing up in hidden hills sub in Stone Mountain in the 80's,where everybody was middle class and worked for a living, when life was good, playing outside in the summer, catching lighting bugs or playing in the creek behind our house until dark, licking honey suckle flowers, our parents out on the porch talking to the neighbors planing the weekly cook out, running wild, riding our bikes in the neighborhood!! aahhh!! how I miss those times, now I wouldn't step foot in Stone Mountain. I wish I could give my kids those kind of memories it's just to dangerous out there.
