Re: I want to compliment someone who doesn't receive nearly enough kudos on here...

I just talked to Henry at John Arguello’s funeral visitation a few weeks ago. He’s working a part time schedule at WOOD now. Henry has been at WOOD since 1970. Is there anyone else in TV as an on air news talent with similar longevity at one station?

The Village Inn on 44th Street is still there. Unfortunately, Mr. Fable's is long gone. I could go for a Mr. Fab and onion rings right now.

Anyone remember the Reptile House?

Re: Looks like the Orbit Room is finally toast; share your memories here!

I saw Jackyl there. That night, Jesse James Dupree carved the word "Orbit" into the top of a wooden stool during "The Lumberjack."

I also saw Mustard Plug open for Weird Al Yankovic there.

Prior to Orbit Room, it was Club Eastbrook. Prior to that, it was a movie theater.
