Capri Bar and Restaurant –
The original Capri Bar and Restaurant was on the corner of
St. and East Burdick Expressway. This location is
now the home of the PATH building. To the south of the Capri
was the Rush Inn Motel. This was torn down and the location is now storage
units. Also at one time in the area on the corner of 8th Avenue and 20th Street Southeast
was Cashway Lumber, owned by Sy Bond.
Gateway Grocery – Gateway grocery was owned by Anna and Louis Panos. It was across the street from the Holiday Inn Riverside. The building was also the home for Tiny’s Bar and one of the Widdell’s Pizza shop – Tony’s Pizza. The new
bar is now in that location.
