Michael’s Restaurant in Rochester, Minnesota is Coming Down

The former Micheals steakhouse that was established by Michael and Mary Pappas in 1951, is meeting the final end: the walls are coming down, shaking the artwork on the walls of Peacock Books & Wildlife Art store.

Like other residents of Rochester, I'll only have my memories because the old is coming down. The new will eventually arrive and with it, positive changes.

I’ll always and forever be grateful for the times our family, friends, and clients had dined at the Michael’s Restaurant or ate in the Papa George Taverna in downtown Rochester, Minnesota, during my lifetime. 

During the afternoon today, the walls trembled, shook and I watched as my pictures of eagles on the wall rocked into flight.

The construction workers came into Peacock Books to see if any holes or damage were done while knocking out the Papa George Taverna wall. Luckily, pictures on my wall rattled, but nothing came down.

When I walked into the construction area with them, I was privy to the newly discovered red garage door butting up to my wall space with a stone archway in front of it on the side of the old tavern.

My eyes locked on the surrounding scenes. I could, even after eight years, envision people gathered in groups around the room. When I quieted my thoughts, I could still imagine their laughter and conversations. The shots I took today, July 18, 2022, were much different from the shots I shot at the end of 12/31/2014 the day Michaels Restaurant officially closed. 

Today, the mural, half-draped, swayed in the movement as we passed by it with an opening that leads to my wall. Like a new door, to a new beginning.

I turned by eyes to the old remnants of times gone by. If there were Ghosts of time past lingering, if they were ever here entertaining the worldwide clients, may they always keep their presence here, if only written on a floor plaque that reminds us that Michaels had once been here.

RIP Mickey Gilley!

RIP Mickey Gilley!

The last thing Mickey Gilley and I talked about after recording an hour long show and the tags was the possibility of me writing his life story. He could have asked anyone, but he asked me  to come down to Branson to help him write his biography. I had thought about it many times.

I feel fortunate to have recorded shows with the greatest talents, several of my guests for my one-hour show are listed below, and all of these fine talents had golden hearts. They all left their gratitude in their own way, their own words: appreciation and love for their fans.

Here are some of my guests that touched all of our lives during my one hour broadcast with them:

Micky Gilley

Beverly Swerling

Jean Craighead George

Porter Wagoner

Tasha Tudor 

Charlie Daniels

Daryl Frank Dragon (Captain & Tennille)

Jim Owen

Eddie Money
