johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

some kid junk

don't let the smooth taste fool yuh, i actually, per the title of this blog, have a basement full of random stuff. witness the above - i don't know why for sure i gathered these things, but i was looking for something else and they just started ending up in a pile.

wot you see are all ephemera from establishments that i frequented when a wee lad growing up in the washington d.c. area. lots of them are gone.
1. el torito mexican restaurant. hasta la vista.
2. gino's. wacked.
3. putt-putt golf and games. GAME OVER! wah.
4. woolworth's. gonzo.
5. shakey's pizza. are they still around? this particular one became a hooters, lol. a great place to be a salami sergeant these days i'm sure.

Alas, the roof of Putt-putt collapsed that winter when we got six feet of snow in the course of a week. It sat there defunct for about a year, then the owner of the land sold it for $plenty and it's a huge apartment building now.
