Oh wow, I forgot about the night spots down by the riverfront. There was Porky's, complete with the full-size airplane crashed through the front of the building. Did that become January's, or was that another place? Caddy's was fun, too, with live music on multiple stages (I remember seeing the Menus play there a few times in the late 80s/early 90s).

Does anyone remember when the Old Spaghetti Factory closed?

I know this is off-topic, but the mention of the Menus reminded me: The Blue Note is closing this weekend. All my West Side friends are in mourning. I'm having them all dump a beer on the floor for me, since I can't make it back to town for the wake. LOL

Porky's was on the corner of 2nd and Plum, right? Catty-corner from Caddy's? Weren't there two clubs in the one building? I'm trying to picture it, but it's kinda fuzzy. That was a long time ago!

It wasn't The Stroke that Mark Sebastian played continuously on Q102, but another Billy Squier song, Everybody Wants You.

As for Plummet Mall, I loved it. The last ad told listeners that due to a recent cold snap, the Earth's crust had shifted and Plummet Mall was now believed to be located somewhere between Greater Cincinnati and Lincoln, Nebraska.

Don't forget Flannigans, next to Sleep Out Louie's on Second Street. Lots of wild nights spent there!

WOW, Just happened on this today (it's now 2012 and this was written in 2009). Boy, did you guys bring back some memories! I remember all the places you mention in Clifton and esp. Short Vine and the Metro, loved the Metro for a time. I worked at Bogarts and that was fun even though we kept having trouble due to "underage" late night shows..not sure what management was thinkin' on that. I remember our sound guy was named Stoney...and rumor was he was deaf so that was why he always cranked it up so loud you could feel your teeth. I worked at Dollar Bill's too...I remember a woman who went around as the shot girl who wore holsters with liquor and you could buy a shot...and the smell of clove cigarettes at another Short Vine hang out (it was on the corner...the name escapes me). I do remember Tomorrows and January's (and the Precinct and Max and Erma's) BUT that was earlier in my "disco" years...Ah, those were the daze!

Wasn't the Jockey Club located in a Newport gangster era nightclub that had been a showplace back in the 1940s...you could tell when you walked in there that there had been something big an ornate there at one time.

Spent many, many nights in the 70s at Conservatory...and what was the place downtown (2nd st) owned by the Schillings? Was that January's?

Also, I so remember Moviola, later the Movies. I loved getting their big poster with a different old movie every night! And Mullane's was wonderful. They had a big round table for "singleton's" to sit at, which made for some good conversation.

Every place in Newport was a gangster-era nightclub at some point or another, LOL.

I don't even know where the Jockey Club was, that's how impaired I usually was by the time I got there. I do remember going to a Mexican restaurant called Sylvia's after the club closed, though. Can't remember where it was, either! *sigh*

Thanks for contributing!

The Bengals in the "Freezer Bowl"

Pete Rose hits 4192

Does anyone remember when The Fox radio station did the I-275 race Memorial Day weekend? It was in the late 80's and I believe they got into a bit of trouble over it. Listeners entered the contest and from what I remember, the first person to make a full lap around 275 won.

You are correct. However, the first theatre in Cincinnati to show art and foreign films came before Moviola was the Studio in the Playboy Building.
