New stores compete for your cash
Fleetwood Diner re-opens, Upstairs Charlies closes, and another
by Jonathan Goodman
Daily Staff Writer
To incoming students arriving in
Ann Arbor this fall all of the cam-
pus area business will be new, but
long time students will recognize a
number of changes around town.
Upstairs at Good Time
Charley's on South University
closed for good early in August. It is
reopening in early September as the
seventh store in the Warehouse
Chris Stephon, general manager
of Warehouse Records said, "the new
Ann Arbor store will be a casual,
contemporary presentation, covering
all types of music."
Downstairs at Good Time Char-
ley's has been refurbished to take on
the full operations of the restaurant
and bar. "The only change will be
that the new Charley's will not have
a dance floor," said Manager Rich
Magner. The new Charley's will be
able to hold between 150-185
people, according to Magner.
Charley's will continue to serve
lunch and dinner. After 9:00 pm
there will be a self service window
in Charley's. "People will be able to
order almost everything on the menu
from the window," Magner said.
"Foods will include munchies and
The current policy of letting stu-
dents 18 and over with a college ID
will probably continue. "However, a
deciding factor will be the amount of
chewing gum we find in the new
Charley's," said Magner. "Our bar
has more chewing gum stuck in
more places than any other bar in the
area." Magner attributed the gum to
the number of students who frequent
O'Sullivan's Pub (formerly
Sully's) has reopened next door to
Charley's. It has been completely
overhauled to include new facilities
and many new services.
O'Sullivan's is still owned by
Jim and Paul O'Sullivan, but little
else is the same as the old Sully's.
The O'Sullivan's have installed a
new management team and are now
offering a wide array of services.
The pub will be open from 8:00
am until 4:00 am. "We will have
breakfast, lunch, tea, happy hour,
dinner and pub time," said John
Ivanko, marketing and advertising di-
rector. Ivanko and two other Mich-
igan students came up with the con-
cept for the all new O'Sullivan's.
"There will also be a carry out
and bakery so people can stop in dur-
ing the day and pick up any item
from our menu. We will also offer
espresso, cappuccino and other spe-
cialty coffees," Ivanko said.
The bar will have around 50 im-
ported beers (80 eventually), around
14 domestic beers and four beers on
tap, according to Ivanko.'
The Galeria, a three level en-
closed mall, on South University is
scheduled to open on September 30.
The 50,000 square foot mall will
have a food court and family amuse-
ment center on the first level. The
ground and promenade levels will
contain retail stores such as the
Athlete's Foot and Camp Beverly
Hills. A restaurant and bar with a
rooftop plaza are also going to be
featured on the promenade level.
"There will be a major record
store moving into the mall," said
Sharon Sterling, vice president for
leasing at Campus Commercial
Properties. Sterling said her com-
pany was waiting to announce the
names of the record store, restaurant
and ATM machine that will be in
the new mall. For safety and conve-
nience the mall will be connected
with the South Forest parking struc-
ture via a skywalk.
Also on South University,
Steeplechase, a men's clothing
store, has reopened under new man-
agement and its old name, Camelot
Brothers. Camelot Brothers was an
Ann Arbor favorite from 1958 to
1978. In '78 it became Steeplechase.
"The store contains affordable
menswear for adults and students,"
Spellman said. "Students can get
good prices on shirts, ties and inter-
Rounding out the South Uni-
versity scene is Orchid Lane. The
store will featrure many similar
African, South American, and Latin
American clothing items as the orig-
inal location on South State. The
new store, however, will offer addi-
tional items for the home.
And don't forget the Backroom
now open on Church. The eatery
features pizza and is adjoined to the
Wolverine Hideaway opened
two months ago on South Thayer
Street next to the Bell Tower Hotel.
It is a small restaurant and carry-out
serving Mediterranean food like
falafel, humous, and tabbouleh. The
Hideaway is open from 9:00 am to
"We offer quick service," said
Isaac Ali, the co-owner. "It's healthy
food and a nice change in pace from
pizza and burgers."
The State Street Theatre has
reopened but it is now home to
Urban Outfitter's. According to
Roger Hewitt, general manager of
Hogarth Management, "Urban Out-
fitter's is a mini-department store. It
offers clothes, gifts, cards, and
housewares and apartment supplies,
which are perfect for students."
This is the eighth store in the
Philadelphia-based Urban Outfitter's
chain. Most of the stores are in col-
lege towns such as Madison, Wis-
consin and Cambridge, Massachu-
Urban Outfitter's will be on the
first floor of the Theatre. "Some-
time late in 1989 we will open two
theatres upstairs in the Theatre,"
The Michigan Book and
Supply has relocated from East Lib-
erty to a new facility on the corner
of South State and North University.
"Our main reason for moving is to
have a better location," said general
manager Dave Richard.
The main difference in the new
store is that it will be better stocked.
"You will be more likely to get the
book or art supply (you need) when
you come in the first time," said
Bon Juice and Sandwiches is a
health food and juice bar that re-
cently opened on East William
Street. It specializes in healthful

fresh juices, as well as spinach and
meat pies, and assorted desserts.
Fleetwood Diner, originally
opened in 1948, has changed owners
once again. According to Susan
Bott, a waitress who dishes up a
healthy share of humor as well as
food, "the new Fleetwood is much
cleaner than the old one."
"We are also offering more vege-
tarian dishes such as tempeh burg-
ers," said Bott. "We have tried to
bring back the 40-year old tradition
of this old standby in Ann Arbor."
The diner is located at the corner of
West Liberty and South Ashley.
Lastly, China Gate on South
University installed a new awning.
This may not seem significant, until
you remember that the original one
was destroyed during the riot which
ensued after the NCAA Basketball
Championship game last April.
With all the new additions, there
are a lot more places to now "forget
all your troubles, forget all your
cares, DOWNTOWN." (Our apol-
ogies to Petula Clark.)
City Council bans open alcohol
on city streets to curb rowdy acts
by Diane Cook
Daily Staff Writer
In an attempt to prevent rowdy
behavior on the city's streets, the
Ann Arbor City Council unani-
mously passed at their June 26 meet-
ing an ordinance prohibiting anyone
from walking the city streets with
open intoxicant containers.
The ordinance was given prelimi-
nary support at the May 1 meeting,

less than a month after thousands of
University students partied in the
street to celebrate the NCAA cham-
"Police need a variety of tools
and techniques to carry out their re-
sponsibilities," said Ingrid Sheldon
(R-2nd Ward). "I like the phrase
Mayor Jernigan used during the dis-
cussion: 'It could be interpreted as
another arrow in the quiver that po-
lice carry out their responsibilities."
Formerly, open intoxicants could
be carried by anyone over 21. Police
could intervene only when the per-
son took a drink. The new ordinance,
however bans all open intoxicants
punishable by fines up to $100 and
possible 30 days in jail.
The Ann Arbor parks are covered
by a separate ordinance which allows
beer and wine in most areas but bans
As it has in previous meetings,
the issue of possible selective en-
forcement of the ordinance arose.
"It's very difficult to enforce such
an ordinance equitably and consis-
tently," said Liz Brater (D-3rd
Sheldon maintained that the ordi-
nance, however, is fair and necessary
because police have had some seri-
ous problems in relating with crowd
"In theory the ordinance is a good
idea. However, the police are often
harsh and unfair on teenagers and
students," said Chip Beebe,
