Memories and stories

Memory

This building was notorious as the location where gang members shot and killed police officer Jerry Haaf, as well as wounding one of the waitresses, but locals loved it for the fact that it had cheap and delicious thin-crust pizza and coin operated televisions; I spent many happy night there in the early 90s eating pizza and watching kung fu movies for a quarter.
