I guess I'm not all that surprised. I know Mister C was tired, ready to retire and had some health problems. I guess it's understandable that he had let things slip towards the end.

Wasn't Mister C in his 80s when it closed?

Not since I was a little kid. We left Omaha in early 2002, and I was just a teenager then. I do plan on visiting the one remaining restaurant when I get back.

Great pictures Star_Gazer!
I worked at Baum Iron years and years ago. It was one of my first jobs out of High School. I have been thinking about that building lately, and wonder what happened to it. Is it still there? It looks like there are Air Conditioners all the way up, from the photos on the Internet. When I worked there, it was only ac up to the second floor. And we had that water pump elevator that worked on a cable. Did this convert to apartments? We used to go around the corner to Satan's Pizza for lunch, and the Old Market was just developing.

Caniglia's isn't what it used to be so I am not aware of nice places to eat since I don't live there anymore but when I visit Omaha I always go to Big Freds and B & G's. I have never tasted pizza like Big Freds. Yum...

If you like Big Fred's pizza then you'd probably like Sortino's pizza too...
