- Greenlake Funeral Home is now Greenlake Montessori School (wonder if the kiddies know...)
Guido's was the best pizza in Seattle. Absolutely perfect crust.
Twin Teepees had really good breakfasts. I never ate any other meal there, but it was classic kitsch. I miss 'em both.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who remembers Guido's! Back then I ate meat, and the sausage was AMAZING. Long, spiced strips... man, that was the jam.

Java Club on Aurora was the first place I had coffee. They'd make you a mixed coffee/Italian soda, I got the coconut.

American Eagle Hobbies in Ballard: I blew so, so many allowances buying model kits there...

my childhood is dead.

Default Pizza

I agree that Guido's was great, but the building was a bit of a hole.

I hope that folks discover Turnpike Pizza on the other side of the lake from where Guido's was (on the old Albertson's site, speaking of long lost landmarks). My new favorite pie in town, and the crust is spectacular.

Does anyone remember the Highline theatre in Burien? I remember going to this movie house in the late fifties and early sixties as a child. It was a big Quonset hut building with a balconey and I believe it had a fish tank in the lobby. Thanks

Boy did this bring back the memories!!!

Anyone remember Manning's restaurant in Ballard on 15th and Market? Sunday morning breakfast with Grandma after church.

I vaguely remember Playland. Herfy bugers were the best!!! I remember lots of things and places talked about here.

How about the Aquarium at --oh I forget what pier it was----pier 91 maybe??? Or was there a pier 57??? Anybody remember what pier that was?

Thanks for the Memories!!!

Not really a place, but do you remember Roscoe the Raccoon? The puppet on channel 11, from the late 80's to the mid 90's?

I always liked that puppet for some reason. Godspeed, Roscoe, wherever you are.

Actually, Channel 11 was awesome for a preteen male back then. They had reruns of all the cool shows like Hunter, and late night movies with tons of explosions and stuff. I'm sure now I'd ignore it, but back then??? Man, was it awesome!

Ok, I did not read every post here, so sorry if this has already been asked. I remember going to Peterson School of Business, downtown Seattle around 2nd & Stewart or so. Anyway, in that general area near the Bon, used to be a big building that housed in one place various vendors, restaurants, little stores, fruit vendors, rather like the public market. Anyone else remember that and if so, what was it called and do I have the right location?
