Not Royal Oak, but Mr. B's in Rochester is closing today. I predict the same for our Local Mr. B's.

You could be right. We had a get together for about 40 people on a Friday night in August and I was amazed how few people were in there from 7 pm till 11:30 pm.

I can't believe Mr. B's has been around for this long.  I guess they are a cheap source of hockey pucks.  Just get a few burgers to go.

Surely another club in the place of Luna's.  Machine Gun Kelly's could make a comeback with a new mural on the back wall of the parking lot.

Wasn't there a different name between 3-Ds and Luna?

Thank You!! I couldn't remember. Eric & Shelley sang there. Loved going there.

As of 2 years ago I know they were still singing professionally but not together. We may have known each other back then.

Co. 512 on N. Main announced their impending closure this morning.  They will be closing their doors for good on February 12th.   Sad to see another quality retailer go out of business.

Emagine closed it's main floor bowling alley (the big one) to replace it with an Emax theater.  Not sure why they did this.  The bowling alley always seemed very busy everytime I visited there.  Either the bowling alley closed in November or the new theater opens in November.  The story doesn't make it entirely clear.

Niki's Greek diner just North of Main on 11 mile appears to be closed.   I drive that way home everyday from work - not open for two weeks.    Anyone confirm ?
