Are they re-opening the gambling Club?

Illegal Gambling Clubs of Toledo

October 23, 2014 ·

Here's an old chip from the illegal Hollywood Club which was located at 6115 Telegraph Road, which is presently Carter Lumber. The Hollywood's original location was downtown on Superior. Once they had moved out to the larger Telegraph spot they opened and closed many times due to raids. They were finally closed down for good in 1951 when the heat was too hot to bare, and the senate Kefauver hearings on organized crime. Hollywood Club had three different issues of chips...they were just so busy that the chips became too worn and had to be replaced.

Lets not forget Angelo's place across from Ort Tool and Die.  It has a long and colorful history.  From a speak-easy to gambling joint and gang hangout to a high priced beanery today.  We know Angelo btw.  I like the food but I don't like the prices...

Agreed.  Now it's a wasteland, eyesore.  The sign says 'Welcome to Toledo' and you are greeted with...nothing but piles of concrete and a ring road that is full of craters.

I see they are working on the building on the SW end of the road near 24 that used to be some sort of beanery.  Were working on the roof the other day...

Additionally, lots of activity at the defunct Carter Building Center complex on 24, just south of the Mi-Ohio line.  A new black security fence has been installed and there is work going on inside the buildings.  I know who is moving in even though there are no signs posted.  I know the management of the company (Industrial / Retail who purchased the property and they have a lot of updating and moving of heavy equipment to do before they can open the doors.  They sell to the public and to industry as well.  Knowing them, it will be a nice addition to the otherwise crappy looking stretch of Telegraph.

I'll let everyone guess on who it is.  Not public knowledge yet so I won't 'spill the beans'.

Let me say this, it's a lateral move from another location nearby in Toledo, that they have outgrown.

The Toledo assessor's office shows James Rostash as the new owner as of February of this year.

For those that don't know (of) him he is a Monroe Attorney and business person.  He's been getting into the self storage business around Monroe County so sounds like he either bought the property for a self storage location or he's on the deed to 'hide' the true ownership of the property.

Self storage

Bingo

We drove home that way yesterday and it definitely looks a lot better.

They aren't going to any effort to conceal the 'new' use of the property...   there is a huge sign on a tall pole that says "State Storage".


Also interesting that when I looked up the sale of the property that Carter Lumber was still showing as Carter Jones Lumber Company.  I haven't heard a reference to Jones in years.

The paper has a story about the quarry opening a bar/restaurant on Hull road side.

I think the "building soon" sign is coming soon.

I don't know that I would be in a big hurry to make any reservations.

This is from an article from the MonroeNews last fall...

and "next spring is now!!!

Plans for a new waterfront restaurant along the shores of the quarry in Monroe Township are moving forward and the developer said he is confident the establishment will be ready for customers by next spring.

For those that are not aware the 'developer' is Bill Gross who owned the Riverfront Marina and bar (among others) for years.  I would expect this restaurant to be along similar lines but without the many, many boaters motoring up the river to enjoy a cold one (or two) ;) ;) ;)

The building is well underway.

And also still has plenty of work to finish...

looks like they're just working on all the underground for the parking lot.

I wonder if they'll have to install a retention pond for storm runoff?

LOL  Although it makes no sense. I wouldn't be at all surprised that there needs to be detention for the parking lot.

Yes, detention is the correct word...

both have to do with retaining the stormwater runoff from the surface of the parking lot but the difference is the length of time that that is required to store this runoff!

We had dinner at the Sushi Hut last night with our youngest and her soon to be husband.  Pretty good selection of entrees (including Hibachi cooked meals for those who don't care for the raw fish), and nice array of appetizers.

I read a few reviews, and recalled from here on the forum, that one of the knocks was length of time from ordering to food served.  Every order is made to order, nothing prepared from the best I could see from the operation....and therefore the length of time.

I'm not enough of a connoisseur to tell a big difference from any of the places where I have tried it before, but I thought it was very good.  I do question what makes a good sushi place and a bad one; is it the quality of the fish?  I would think rice is rice, and mostly basic ingredients.

For you Sushi lovers...

I was watching "The Doctors" TV show today and they said almost all seafood is imported into the US, and that less than 2% of it is inspected. They also said that about 74% is not the real thing. They took fish samples from 14 restaurants and all of them were substitutes. Red Snapper was some other fish with red dye, and White Tuna was Escolar, which is called the Ex-Lax of fish. There is no such species of fish called White Tuna. They also said that Escolar is banned in Japan because it is so dangerous. If anyone knows fish it has to be Japan.


--------------------------------------------------------------------

The escolar, Lepidocybium flavobrunneum, a species of fish in the family Gempylidae, is found in deep (200–885 meters (656–2,904 ft)) tropical and temperate waters around the world. It is also known as snake mackerel, walu walu (Hawaiian, also seen written waloo), and is sometimes fraudulently sold as "butterfish" or "white tuna",[1] a matter aggravated by potential health problems related to consumption of escolar.[2]

Health effects
Escolar's wax ester content can cause keriorrhea (Greek: flow of wax), gempylotoxism or gempylid fish poisoning.[4] Symptoms range from stomach cramps to rapid loose bowel movements, occurring 30 minutes to 36 hours following consumption.[5] This condition may also be referred to as steatorrhea.

Two known ways to reduce the likelihood of escolar-induced keriorrhea are to limit portions to six ounces (170 g) or less[6] and to consume portions close to the tail, which typically have a lower wax ester content. Reports conflict on whether deep skinning, freezing or grilling will reduce the likelihood of keriorrhea.

Mislabeling

Escolar can be mislabeled in both restaurants and at fish markets. In 2009 tuna samples from sushi restaurants in New York City and Denver were DNA tested. Five of nine restaurants serving fish labeled “white tuna,” “white tuna (albacore)” or “super white tuna” were actually serving escolar.[7] From 2010 to 2013, a study by Oceana, an Ocean preservation organization, tested over 114 samples of tuna, and found that 84% of the white tuna samples were actually escolar.[8]

Oceana claims that escolar has been mislabeled or otherwise confused with the following fish: Atlantic cod, oilfish (related to escolar but in a different genus), rudderfish, blue cod, black cod, king tuna, grouper, orange roughy, sea bass, gemfish, Chilean sea bass, albacore tuna, and white tuna.[9]

Oceana claims that this mislabeling, whether by ignorance or deceit, is more hazardous than the mislabeling of other fish due to the potential health effects of escolar.[10]

Regulation and banning

Italy and Japan have banned the sale of escolar due to its potential side effects. It has been banned for consumption in Japan since 1977, as the Japanese government considers it toxic.[11][12] In 1999, the Swedish and Danish national food administrations informed fish trade associations and fish importing companies about the problems escolar and related fish could cause if not prepared properly and issued recommendations.

In early 2007, after a public outcry, receiving consumer complaints about mislabeled fish and conducting an investigation,[13] the Hong Kong government's Centre for Food Safety recommended escolar not be used for catering purposes, advised clear labeling and identification of fish species before sale, and purchase of fish from reliable sources, and recommended consumers become aware of the possible health effects of consumption of escolar, oilfish, and related species. The Hong Kong government has established a working group composed of members of the academia, trade and consumer group to prepare guidelines for assisting the trade and consumers in identifying relevant species of fish.

In the United States, the FDA, after receiving complaints about diarrhea associated with escolar consumption, issued a bulletin recommending against import of the fish in the early 1990s. However, the FDA backed away from this recommendation and withdrew the bulletin several years later after deciding the fish was nontoxic and nonlethal. Currently, the FDA informally recommends, "Escolar should not be marketed in interstate commerce."[14]

In mid-2007, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, after investigating cases of diarrhea caused by mislabeled fish, decided not to ban escolar or oilfish, but instead issued a fact sheet[15] noting the potential adverse effects of consumption and recommending consumers speak with their retailer, verify fish species and consume the fish in small portion sizes using preparation methods that reduce oil content.

Hawaiian State Representative James Tokioka introduced HB2669, a bill aimed at banning the catch, sale or possession of escolar.[16] HB2669 was deferred on February 1, 2010.[17]
