1960s Memories of Cleveland’s Coolest Street Relived at the Music Box

Wed 4/25 @ 7PM

As part of its regular Cleveland Stories local history series, the Music Box Supper Club in the Flats is inviting Coventry Road regular Steve Presser to recall the Woodstock-era days of that counterculture Cleveland Heights hub, a thoroughfare that has inspired poetry, movies and music.

Presser may be best known as a local small-business backer and owner of the culty toys/collectibles store Big Fun, a Coventry fixture that, alas, is slated to close in early summer. As a raconteur and witness to history, he will be interviewed onstage about the town’s liveliest years as a colorful hangout for hippies, Record Revolution, Tommy’s and more.

Admission to the talk is free. Doors open at 5pm offering visitors a chance to “dig” a themed dinner (at a fixed price of $20) courtesy the Rusty Anchor Restaurant.
