Let's see what restaurants and taverns you remember from this list. I see two on this list that still existed in 1980 at 22nd and Ash, the Golden Goose and the Lucky Strike Cafe. (I can't remember the name of the third one at 560 East 22nd; it was Bojarski's Cafe in 1968.) I was always amazed that there were so many bars and clubs in such a small area- East 21st to East 26th- from Ash to Parade. And, you could buy a case of beer at City Beer!
The bar across the street from Serafin's at 24th and Ash sold lots of fish dinners. You could smell the fish frying two blocks away. Other places had specialties as well. Many also had a jukebox stocked with the latest top hits.
What are your favorite Erie PA memories? Do they involve a special meal with your family?
