That store in Hikes Point Plaza was Topps. Consolidated had a store at 15th and Jefferson.

Been a while since i have been on the site, but out of the blue a restaurant came to mind that I dont think anyone mentioned. "Olivia's" cant remember what it was before, but the old Shively police chief "Donnio"owned it or something and he was majorly corrupt with the maffia, according to a lot of people who told me that are long dead and gone now. LOL : )

Does anyone remember a restaurant in a hotel in or near the Fairgrounds that had violinists playing and walking between fhe tables. I think the violinists were the Kurt Sieger & the Strolling Strings. It was a nice restaurant in I think the 1960's or 1970's.

^^^The Executive Inn

The Kurt Siegert Strings, was a popular combo and performed at the Executive Inn almost daily for close to 30 years.
Kurt & Barbara organized the string group, consisting of
four violins, Kurt, Barbara and Jesus & Carmen Getan
with Tom Conlin at the piano and Bert Pierson, Bass


The group opened the Executive Inn in Louisville in 1963
and except for an eight months engagement 1964/65 at
the Executive Inn in Dallas, performed daily in the
Empire Room until 1992

At one time the orchestra was augmented to six violins
but later changed to three violins and a guitar was added.

Thanks! We went there a number of times on special "date nights." It's good to know the name of the hotel where they played. Now our daughter plays in a symphony orchestra.

He had us working like we were on the assembly line at General Electric Company at Appliance Park. The idea behind the chain was to order "combos" by colored triangles, such as red, blue, and etc.

My brother and I had worked for El Taco Mexican Restaurants in San Pedro and Gardena, California. Charlie Toogood and his brother, Jerry Toogood, were more lax than TTS. We worked hard at El Taco but it was more informal. We got to eat as much food as we wanted to eat and it was FREE. Usually, after the rush, I would take a break and fix myself a meal. Customers liked seeing us employees eating the restaurant's food -- it reassured them that our food was safe to eat!
There was a Triple Triangle on Dixie Highway near where the old Sandy's Restaurant was at Sonne Avenue. You could get a burger, fries and shake for under a dollar when I was a kid. Sandy's was nice restaurant, many Shively political meetings, etc held in the back rooms. They were open quite late and had just about everything you could imagine for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Oliva's was on Dixie just south of Gagel Ave. It originally opened as a Sambo's restaurant about 1979 before that chain went bankrupt. It later was the site for Ryan's steakhouse. It was also a bar/night club for a short while after Oliva's.
