Gabes smelled of old hot dogs and stale popcorn and looked like someone had a brown streak and decided to scrap his ass through out the store. Ollie's on the other hand was just a warehouse with a concrete floor and tables of stuff. Still nicer than Gabes.

Never liked The Clarks, but I will openly admit to being a Rusted Root fan.

We used to buy Shasta and head out on the back roads for 'Shasta bombing'. Which involved shaking up cans of said sugary drink and them throwing them as hard as we could out of moving cars at things like mail boxes and cars in driveways.

Altoona and Holidaysburg were swingin' places, let me tell you.

17th Street, right? Used to love the popcorn.

Was the game Super Bowl XL? Cos that would be the greatest story ever.

Bingo. As a side note, that entire complex (including the Station Mall) is a gigantic medical office now.

The Hills in Bethel Park (across from Cool Springs) was awesome.....we played street hockey for many, many, many hours behind it and they never chased us away.

How many of you from the South Hills have been to a Trader Horn? I'm searching for an Ollie's equivalent.
