Remember When Kids Cruised Forest Lane on Friday Nights? It'd Be a Lot Cooler If You Did.
Down below,in the comments
, we somehow got to talking about Forest and Marsh and how maybe that part of town --my
part of town, from the day I was born till this very moment -- could use a Better Block Project of its own. Which got a few of us to reminiscing about the good ol' days. Which prompted Friend of Unfair Park "Dazed and Confused" (all right, all right, all right) to postthis link to a January 1982 Texas Monthly story about the nightlife on Forest
, between Cromwell and Inwood. Hard to say which brings back the memories more: the story by then-Dallas Observer
senior editor David Seely or the photos by David Woo. Because, man, I still dream about that Pizza Inn. And owning a Trans Am.
