I started working in the SoWhat before any of the towers even broke ground. Back in those days, if we rode public transit, to get to a bus stop we had to walk 3/4th of a mile!
Our dining options were limited in those days, also, to either the Spaghetti Factory, or, if you were willing to brave crossing
Death Trap Alley Macadam and hiking under the I-5 overpass, to the Ross Island Deli.
For their Club of Love (grilled turkey club sandwich), you’d find me running hell for leather across Macadam, I tell you what. Sandwiches come with a pickle spear and a bag of Tim’s Potato Chips.
