Highly recommend a stop at a Steel City Improv Theater, on Ellsworth by the South Highland bridge. I’ve seen a bunch of shows there, and am taking a improv class now. Love them!
Another MUST while on Ellsworth Ave is Eons Fashion Antique! They are right on the corner of Ellsworth and College St. The owner has spent the last 37 years as shop curator of a large selection of vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories. He offers great vintage for men and women and is a safe place for anyone experimenting with fashion choices. Eons is open 12-5 every day. Definitely worth a visit!
