Joe and the kids

Originally uploaded by hjoew.

Getting together for Mother’s Day – at the Northgate TGI Fridays, no less (formerly the “Prime Wine,” remember that?) – I took my three nieces and two cousins on a little “walk” around the parking lot. Here we sit in the former drive-through of a bank that was converted into a theater some 20+ years ago for the former Loews Northgate Cinemas (where I worked the summer after I graduated from Colerain High School in 1992).

In the photo, left to right, is niece Krissy (a twin), niece Kailey, cousin Rhianna, niece Cory (the other twin), nephew Connor, cousin and godson Henry Cole and me.

Turns out the theater, which re-opened as a discount, two-run theater with some first-run movies (and I think private ownership) a few years ago, has closed again.
