Mr. Fooz

Nothing new to say except a nice guy just wrote to me today to say how much he loved the sub sandwiches at Mr. Fooz.   It's amazing how many times I've heard people say over the years that the Fooz subs were the best they ever had.  Little did they know that wasn't actually oregano we used to sprinkle on top  :)

  1. What was that sub shop in Mish Mish alley where you stepped over a running creek and bought your sub through a dutch door?

    1. Sounds like The Sewer to me, derived the name from the stream of water that ran accros the floor. . I worked there on Friday & Saturday nights b/4 I moved to Blacksburg in '72 or '73. Only choices were Italian or American subs as I remember. Stayed open to about 2-3am.

  5. I remember Dave's Dogs across the street from Fooz. Best pool room fights I ever saw. Dave Munday used to own it, same guy that owned, or used to own the tubing place down at the river. Anyone heard of Dave lately?

  7. Mr. Fooz was awesome. I was at Tech from 1978-82 and my roomies & I went there a lot. Pitchers of PBR were $2.65 and there was a new Bank of America ATM right across the street: a dangerous combination! Great subs, pinball & video games. My pal Tom Demuth was a foozball whiz. Good times, great memories. "Top of the Stairs" was down the street, and is the only place I ever saw Michelob dark. Good stuff.
