This thread is very entertaining as I had not even visited Louisville when most of these stores were around. The first visit I recall was in 1999, when I said to myself, "This city has sooo much potential!"

I used to work at the Fashion Shop when it was in Westland Mall. The restaurant in the Ayr-way/Target was called the Spice Rack and Consolidated had a lunch counter as well. They had the best goulash! there was Mr. C's Shoe Store, Dipper Dan Ice Cream, a Hallmark shop, pizza place, Merle Norman, there was a lady's clothing store (don't remember the name), a deli that made great hot ham and cheese sandwiches. geez, the memories of high school job. There was a Sizzler in the parking lot and a Bank of Louisville. I think there was also a gym of some sort there for awhile.

When I found out that Ear X-Tacy became a Panera Bread I think I wanted to kill myself. Ear X-Tacy is where I fell in love with my Cecil who is out there someone and I haven't seen for years. She's still my first love and that place totally makes me think of her. Sad to see it gone. Jason Noble worked there. Chris Higdon worked there. I'm tearing up now. Miss you Cecil!

The group opened the Executive Inn in Louisville in 1963

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.

I also saw The Telephone Man at a coffee shop next to what is now Molly Malone's with my love Cecil. As you can see I totally had a thing for her and all my Louisville memories tend to involve her.

The denisty, urbanity, and wealth of restaurants and local shops can be seen here:

Louisville had "el trains" extensive trolleys, and miles upon miles of dense row housing and midrise buildings....the city is a shadow of itself! It is ashame as it was a legit top 15 city over 100 years ago
