weekend event- things you wish still existed.... CRYSTAL PEPSI!

I vaugely remember drinking this, and thinking it tasted like a mix between pepsi and 7-up. Wouldnt mind it coming back so I can have another taste of it and see how good my memory is.

maybe they can get Diamond David Lee Roth to sing the crystal pepsi theme song....

also remember having a laugh at this parody commercial from SNL

I wish this still existed....

Though the ad and menu are from the 1950s, my time of Woolworth's was really the 1980s. Almost every Saturday at 11:30am I'd leave my residence on 8th Avenue South and my best friend in high school Jenny Bigwood would leave her house on 1st Avenue South. We'd meet at 5th Avenue and 7th Street and go have lunch at Woolworth's 4 blocks down. Then we'd wander around maybe getting a 45, remember them? Before then going into almost every single store downtown.
