There was another FedMart on Northwest Highway near Jupiter. Skillern's were all over and I believe they started in Oak Cliff (former mayor Robert Folsom's family). How about Jo-Jo's Toys?

I do remember Granny's Dinner Theatre... went there many times! A great place.

I still miss Joske's... one of my favorite stores both here and in Houston for many years... then gone! And, now Foley's, too.

Default Grand Junction Pizza Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Bowl

Grand Junction Pizza in Spanish Village at Arapaho and Coit. One of the former employees wrote in to Sports Illustrated last year about how the crew still meet for the annual Thanksgiving football game. They had some great pizza and the most excellent Centipede and Galaga machines.


Here's where you can read all about GJ's reunion.

Skillern's -- wow. That takes me way back to my childhood.

I had a friend that was a cashier at Skillern's in high school and hated it. At that time, adult magazines and condoms were kept behind the counter and she'd have to hand them to customers when they asked for them. She was appalled that she even had to acknowledge their existence and her horror when talking about it was amusing to the rest of us. Now, everything in stores is out in the open for everyone - and I mean everyone - to see and examine. Oh my.

I remember calling this place Fargo's. Was it Fargo's Grand Junction Pizza? It had the separate wooden booths? I spent A LOT of time there in junior high and high school. We could walk there.

I worked at Skelton's Exxon at Preston and Forest in the mid-seventies. Does anyone remember Deubecks (sp) Skateland on Greenville. It was a great place surrounded by horse farms!!

The purple drink at Andrew's was the Moondance. I worked there in the mid 80s, slinging drinks for the SMU crowd. And i think the supper club on upper greenville was Elan.

Thanks BoCoRojo - wasn't there 'the lighthouse' -- can you name some other drinks?

Also do you have the artichoke nibbles recipe?

I was one of those SMU (grad by then) kids hanging out (I hope I was not too obnoxious) - remember the guitarist up in the perch?
