Lots of good memories here,But wasn't the "Tropical Drink Shop" aka the Pina Colada place you mentioned located in front of the Lido Chinese Restaurant on the Skinny portion of Hanover St. at No. Warren?
And in that block of No. Warren St. was Satterwaites Feed and Grain Store. Every Easter season we waited to see the baby chicks hatching in the window, along with the cute little ducks.
Metropole Clothes was on the 2nd floor next to where the Arcade bowling alley, where I set pins for a nickle a frame. After working all night, Brother in law Joe Bastecki and I would splurge on a "Tomato Pie" at "Zotto's on the hill of Warren St.
BTW did you see where DeLorenzo's made National news with being named one of the best in the USA by Parade Magazine. Mar. 11th edition.
Warm good wishes
