« 55th Anniversary of the Death of Mayor Harry Baals | Main | Fort Wayne Newspapers One of Only 6 JOAs Left; AZ Attorney General Sues to Keep 7th Publishing Both Papers »

My heart is broken. I have so many great memories of the Acme, not the least of which is when Dawn and I sat at the bar and began our decades long friendship.

There is so much I will miss, not the least of which is the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich.

Change is hard.

I stopped by for the first part of the auction, but didn't stick around to see the painting go. Does anyone know where it ended up?

M Lewis

There is an excellent chance that "friends" of the ACME (the persons who purchased the painting and most of the fixtures) will reopen the ACME late this summer. Keep your fingers crossed that this great neighborhood gathering place will survive!

Ed. note: Would these be the folks from "Equipment Finders"?

I have fond memories of the Acme that go all the way back to my grammar school days. But being a downtown person at heart, the place I really miss is the 412.

M Lewis

No, it is not "Equipment Finders". The painting, bar, booths, jukeboxes, etc. were all purchased by a couple known to the Cozmas and Stavreti families.
