The CITGO (or City Service) station on West Tennessee (across from and near McDonalds). They would put a case of beer on a gas card and call it a "Battery" or "Tires" on the charge slip for the parents. No ID necessary.

Ted Rodrique's driving range on Ocala Road.

The a local band, the Mystics, playing at the Keg when Mike Hochstein owned it (his first of many bars).

Seven Steers at High Road and Tennessee.

Pastime and Pastime II.

The Talem on Woodward (sometimes with Rita Coolidge).

I remember Seven Steers. GREAT hamburgers. They had a drink called the Roundup that was a combination of coke, seven up, grape soda and whatever else they had. Weird but good.

Hey Goldmom, the same thing was going on when I was a freshman in Jennie. I lived on the bottom floor, with CC as the RA.

I remember the guys hanging out on the steps of the B school, and the T check. All of our Social Science classes were in Bellamy, then we had to walk past the B school to go anywhere else, unless we were headed to Westcott for English or Speech.

I remember 1973 Homecoming Pow-Wow in the Doak when a fresh/new 28 year old comedian on the college circuit by the name of Steve Martin (yes that Steve Martin) performed. He also did a comedy gig in the Down Under restaurant/beer hall in the Union, and afterwards me and some of my friends stayed around to shoot the bull with him. Great guy. Yes, he was doing the old arrow through the head gag back then too.

Bcherod:

I would have been one of those guys sitting on the B school steps or the elevated walkway around Moore Auditorium doing T check. I remember one day though, a bunch of female sudents took the steps/walkway over and cat called the guys going by for revenge/protest. It was hilarious.

A few other landmarks/events that come to mind & bring back FSU memories:

Nick's Taggerry
The original Bill's Book Store location across from Westcott
Flightfuel paties
Shrimpboils on the coast
Neanderthal Ball (The original toga party)
Mikes
Movies downtown to see The Godfather, M.A.S.H. and Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
"Paul is dead."

Jax on Tennessee St. in 72. Would walk down from Kellum and ask for double bags so they wouldn't break on the way back. We used our student ID for paying by check because it didn't have your age on it. I was thrilled that we had hired a nice YOUNG coach in BB. Who remembers registration in Westcott? Who was on Landis Green for the great Streaking night?

Hey, stop that. Florida State was NOTHING, NOTHING until BB arrived in town and made all sports known on a national scale.
Forget that we had good athletes. Forget that we had a silver medal Olympian come off the swim team from back in those days. Who can name the guy - a diver?

My final reply to this post which I started is that without a historical perspective on FSU footaball (i.e. pre-BB) it is impossible to appreciate what Coach Bowden has done for this University as a coach and as a man.
It pains me to hear people criticize him in the way they do at times and he does not deserve it.
Go ahead and have it TC posters.

Graduated in 1960...Tom Nugent was coach.

I wasn't but my son was here before BB.transfered to W.Va. and transfered back to FSU the same time that Bobby came here.

The Phyrst is not old school enough for this crowd. It was the Silver Dollar Saloon back in the day.

Does anyone remember the name of the Greek restaurant on Monroe about 2 blocks north of Tenn St. close to the jewelry store. (can't remember it's name either. When I played at Leon, we would eat our pregame meal there, they served a great steak.

Yeah, I know gold, I was trying to bring in the younger crowd. Do you know the name of the Greek restaurant on Monroe?



Posted on 1/25 10:58 PM | IP: Logged

The F&T and the Seven Seas were Greek places on Monroe at differnt times-Patronis and Petradis, don't remember which.

How about other down town places: Bennett's Drug Store (College and Monroe), the Florida and the State theaters, Morrison's on Adams, The Lewis State Bank, Buddy Brandt's Sporting Goods (about only place in town that sold jock straps), Mendelson's (sold Levi's), DuBey's bookstore near the capital, the police station on Park Smile, Moon's Jewelry, Rainey Cawthons.

It's been great taking this walk down memory lane. The last comment I will have on this post is that it is impossible to appreciate FSU football without the historical perspective of the pre-BB era.
Our coach is much mailgned by the press and unfortunately by posters on the TC.
I do hope that we will afford him the courtesy, respect, and at the very least the CIVILITY that the man deserves.
If we had not had Bobby as our coach, I can guarnatee you we would not be talking about Darrell Mudra right now.
God bless.

The Sopchoppy Julia Mae's was wonderful, Angelo's, the Oaks, all good places, but the pies at Julia Mae's were out of this world.

Anybody remember Crow's on Lake Bradford, I think it was?

The Steve Martin concert was terrific, funniest man I've ever seen perform. He could do the same things over and over and you'd laugh but he also worked things in from left field you'd never imagine.

Saw him once elsewhere and at the end of the show, he walked out the front door with the audience following him around a two or three block area outside. At one point, he squatted down and "chased" a car moving through the area while popping his head up to the car window and barking as loud as he could. The crowd was howling, the people in the car were shell shocked. Hilarious!

Good times.

While reading the Tallahassee Democrat on-line, I saw Gretchen Everhart school mentioned----I took a psychology course from Miss Everhart. A great teacher. My husband said a few days ago--"you know you are getting old when you realize that everyone who signed your diploma has a building named for them!!" Smile

Posted on 1/26 8:35 AM | IP: Logged

Class of '75 here. Sure was fun reading all the previous posts. Had forgotten lots of those places and party joints. Most of us that were there before BB had a great time and supported the football program even though it was tough at times. For all of us old-timers, it's much easier to appreciate Bobby and what lasting memories he has given us. So many bowl trips, Nat. Championships, Heisman trophy winners etc.

Posted on 1/26 9:25 AM | IP: Logged

The Greek resturant on North Monroe was Angelos. I got to know him very well; he has since died and his wife and their son opened another Angelos restaurant in Tallahssee on Kerry Forest; good food but they have since closed.



Posted on 1/26 9:30 AM | IP: Logged

How about some other concerts: The Chambers Brothers (Time Has Come Today) and Sugarloaf (Green Eyed Lady) in Doak; Mason Williams (Classical Gas) and Ferreinte and Teicher (sp?) in Ruby Diamond? Steve Martin in Tully? Blood, Sweat, and Tears? This thread would be incomplete without kudos to the Marching Chiefs; they have kicked butt for as long as I can remember and still are the best college marching band.

Wasn't that little dorm called Magnolia Hall? I thought the one on the corner of Tennessee was DeGRaff. All the fraternity houses that were built and owned by FSU to attract men when the school went back to co-ed. Those were such dumps. I think the ATO house was the last to go and it burned (again) in 1999.
Then the ones down in the valley along Budweiser Creek.
Radical Jack. Actual pep rallies on Thursday night.
Students did not go out and hit the bars every single night like they do now. Thursday nights got things started.
Fires at Bryan Hall and Westcott.
Madrigal Dinners. Lunch series put on by the hotel and restaurant students, good food for incredibly cheap prices so they could get practical experience. They had dinners too.
Dances upstairs in the old Student Union with one of those glitter balls that hang from the ceiling.
Betty Friedan giving her big feminist talk.
Ralph Nader giving a speech at Ruby Diamond.
Dorms weren't air conditioned. Are you kidding me?

I know there are few women in this thread, but there used to be a private dining room behind Bryan Hall just for girls. It had white tablecloths and still used silverware that said FSCW on it. It was gone by the end of my sophomore year.
I have a few pieces of the silverware that have FSCW engraved on them.
Don't even start with the age jokes. Heh heh.

Anybody know or remember my best friend Jim Wettengel, ATO President in '66 and his girlfriend (later wife) Patti Johnson. I was in Nam in 65 and 66 and when I got back in April of 66 I went down from my SAC Wing in Columbus, Miss and spent four days with Jim at the ATO house. We painted the Lion on an early, very early Monday morning. Great memory.

Branson, I think it was called the Dixieland; Red Evans was the DJ in a little trailer. Not a usual FSU hangout unless you were looking for townies.

Goldmom, you're absolutely right, it was Magnolia.

Goldmom you are correct, that was Magnolia Hall next to Montgomery Gym, overlooking the tennis courts. DeGraff Hall was, and still is, on West Tennessee; in fact it has recently been re-built and is pretty impressive.

This has been great, but I'm gonna bow out. We're really beginning to show our age. Check out all the repeats popping up. I'm afraid Dot's gonna create a new board just for us, complete with BIG TYPE and reminders that we take our meds. 3dGrin



Posted on 1/26 12:58 PM | IP: Logged

I was out of town and came back to see this thread up. This is an incredible read... this is one of the reasons that this board is so fun for a kid raised out on Lake Bradford to follow.
gonolesglp - I also went to my first game in 64... Houston's veer took it to us.
SemiBubba - I sold peanuts over the years. I believe Brian Coughlin was the kid in charge. 37-9 was electric and the start of a great run over the gates. JT Thomas was one of the early black players at a major (were we major?) southern school and his game against Pitt when he blocked multiple kicks ranks up at the top for me.
SanFord Nole- We used to go to the stadium after hours as well. Frisbee at night on the old practice fields was a hoot. Played tackle football on Sunday's at the intermural fields.
AtlSFNole - Crow's was a family owned grocery on Lake Bradford Road down the hill from Alumni Village... it was fire bombed the night that MLK was killed in Memphis and one of the boys died in the fire... there were several other fires that night in town.
Goldmom- We always called it the Pal lay Saloon on Jackson Bluff... the beer can pyramids reached epic proportions. Julia Mae's down in Sopchoppy and later outside of Carrabelle were awesome for quality and quantity.
I was hanging out at the Silver Dollar when Ted Bundy terrorized town... his terrible legacy reached into our lives in Tally and Lake City as well.

We kids had South end zone tickets ( the old wooden bleachers) and the folks sat up at about the thirty five yard line on the alumni side. One year in the late seventies, there was a kicker who had a very dependable xtra point kick. He would kick it good and the hook to the right brought it to me. I caught the PAT and gave the ball to my baby brother to throw back onto the field literally a dozen times one year.

A few more places to add to the list...
High diving at Wakulla Springs and the pool on campus (now gone and needing a replacement for a strong team to utilize)
Cherokee Sink and swinging from the big pine tree.
Canoes out on Lake Bradford and the Seminole Reservation.
Free concerts on the grass at the Student Union. (Muddy Waters was my all time favorite there.)
Thompson's Burgers down on South Monroe just past the railroad overpass had a monster burger.
Whataburger sold a one gallon plastic jug of root beer for about a buck.

The Larry Jones and Darell Mudra years were tough after Coach Pete's great run. We were there for every single home loss as the team went 0-11 and then 1-10.
I was working at Frisch's on Tennessee Street (and listening to the radio) the year that 'Bama came back to beat us 8-7. It would have been an incredible win. We traveled to Auburn when we led (I believe) at half 6-3 only to lose 38-6. Couldn't catch a break during that stretch.
I do give Mudra credit for starting the turnaround. His recruits were supplemented by Bowden's to get it started back in the right direction.
I went to school at Godby with Mudra's daughter... she was a hottie.
Enuff already, the bball team lost another tough one today. Durn it.
Let us all be noles!

OK, then you most likely know Lil65, who was an ATO as well at that time and also left for Nam and then returned. He posts 99% of the time on the Smack Board. I think in his real life he's an accountant and works for the IRS.

My youngest brother was ATO at FSU but that was the early 70's.

Made a huge mistake coming out of HS and originally went to that god for saken place to the SE. First visited Tallahassee during Fall quarter (74) and wound up at the Electic Eye on Ladies night. Took one look around and immediately began the transfer process to FSU. Skiing at the Reservation, Four Wheeling behind the Airport, Saturdays at the Sink Holes, Professors Kirkham, Fox and Halligan. Freds, Palace, Silver Dollar/Phyrst, Big Daddys, Tempo, Kens and the drive thru on Tennessee. SR year Bundy hit and the Frat guys began escorting all the girls to and from night classes. Was in G'Ville when we beat the Gates 37-9. Great memories. MDNC-SR

'69-'72 - interesting years under Bill Peterson - the team was competitive. The basketball team made the finals against UCLA and the baseball team lost the CWS to USC back in thsoe years. A good friend of mine who lived in Denver for a number of years was a reliever who pitched against the noles for USC.

Bill Peterson, so it's hard to remember that long ago lol! The funniest thing about Bill ...his malaprops...I haven't read the thread so I'm sure there are a few that have been mentioned....like get in a line and form a cirlce etc.

Posted on 1/27 11:11 AM | IP: Logged

OK, now that I've read the thread it's all comming back to me..ha ha. Wow, I was limiting my thoughts to football, which all runs together at times. But RoadKing, after the Chambers Brothers were at Doak my friend and I brought them to the Sports Auditorium on the truck route where they used to have wrestling etc. Our advance sales were great but it rained that day and the walk up crowd was almost nil. We were going to lose our tail and I had to go get $3500 cash to pay the band to play or we were going to have to refund everyone's $ and still lose. I just told the band to play great because I was the highest paying customer in the place! We found out later that the guy that ran the place had lied to us about the seating capacity and we would have had to sell out to break even.....yep we got taken that night! Crow's used to beat the heck out of everyone playing foos ball...Also I owned a bar on Pensacola st and Woodward...now it's a Jewish scholarship house...used to be a Nic's clothing store...I bought into it in 74 with a friend who's brother wanted out so I bought in....came in one night after washing some clothes and the place was flooded with cop cars...some drunk had been kicked out of Ken's and the elctric eye and stopped in to play some pool only to get into a fight and start throwing pool balls at everyone..there were holes in the plastic chairs and the walls and my bartender was beaten to a pulp...apparently the chain wrapped billy club wasn't enough to subdue the drunk.....I could go on now that all these memories are flooding back....Radical Jack Lieberman, still remember him slurping away trying to espouse his left wing bs in the Red Garder. I'll stop now so I don't bore the young crowd....and for the younster that picked this thread to put his two cents in....I stand and yell my rear off!!
