During the Holstein's era, I worked across the street at Irish Eyes, 2519 N. Lincoln. I had totally forgotten about Troubles, as we called it. There was another great music bar, Orphan's. Periwinkle cafe next to Lilly's on the east side of the street, Bookseller's Row had two locations, one by Periwinkles and later by the Biograph. There also was book store next to Three Penny for a short time, as well as Guild Books, so there was a time where that strip was known for its eclectic mix of bars, bookstores, movie theaters and restaurants.
