A lot has changed on Brown Street over the last 5 years. They've torn down a ton of old buildings, and they now have Chipotle, Panera Bread, and other small shops where things like Submarine Alley, Arby's, and Submarine House used to be.
I remember the Shed had a stuffed sleeping dog lying by the fireplace. Many a drunk would go over the dog and pet it and say "good doggie".
I worked at the Red Barn Chicken next door to the Shed circa 1972 (yes, I'm old). Soaked up a lot of suds at the Shed, Timothy's, etc. etc.
Building Chipotle, Panera Bread, etc. aroud college campuses seems rampant these days.
And I married a Dayton girl too (actually a Kettering girl but close enough).
