Midfield High School

Does anyone remember Pharoah's Pool Hall on the Bessemer Super Hwy across from Roy Buckner Chevrolet? How about Cue-N-Break in Five Posts West next to the Movie Theaters under the Parking deck. We would hang out some times on top of the parking deck in 5-points, the Bham Police ran us off most the time. We would cruise through Shoney's in Midfield, when it had Drive-In and would cruise down to the Shoney's on 3rd Ave West and sometimes to the Shoney's Downtown Bham. I remember Mike Pope (class of 74) working at the Shoney's Downtown. We used to go to The Bama Drive-In Movies. Sort of across from Holiday Bowl in Bessemer. There was a drive-in resturant there too, I think it was the Bama also, But I could be wrong, that was a looooong time ago and a few thousand brain cells ago.
