Meet Here

** IMPORTANT UPDATE ** The former manager of The Wall, the long haired, shorter guy who worked there every day, every hour, for what seemed like forever, contacted me via email to tell me he’d attend. He’s also going to bring a stack of those little blue stickers that make your CD guaranteed for life. If you know me, you’d know I’ve been talking about this guy for 15 years, and to get an email from him is like getting an email from Bigfoot. It’s amazing. I’m thrilled. It makes it all worth it.

DELCO, this one’s for you.

These recent photos of the Granite Run Mall (from Christina Wagner, who will be walking with us!) alerted me that my long threatened final walk through, and podcast from the mall needs to happen soon. So it is!

So I confirmed it with Delco legend Fantasource, and we’re going to take one final walk through the Granite Run Mall, and we want you to come along. I’ll bring along some stuff to record, and maybe get everyone’s memories of the mall as we walk, and then podcast the entire thing. My wife said she’d come too, indicating she either really loves the mall, or I’ve totally broken her will.

The mall was a huge part of my teenage years (AS I OUTLINED HERE), so this is important to me, in some perverse way.

So, what are we going to do? We will.

* Walk through the mall.

* Talk about the different stores that were there.

* Pour out a 40 in the parking lot for the mall.

* Finally, go to Riddle Ale House for the final meal.

That’s it. Pretty stupid, I know.

Here’s all the info:

    Bain’s Deli, Swear I ate there every Sunday for several years. I lived in DelCo and would meet my parents from Chester Co. We would shop the mall and have lunch at Bain’s. Best Tuna on Rye ever!
