Akron Oh Kids T-Shirts
Any true old school gamer has played some D & D before... even if you came after the golden era of 75-85, you have probably played. If not, you missed out. Role Playing Games, especially D & D, made for hours of entertainment... and nothing was a bigger part of that then the MONSTER MANUAL! A 108 page companion book listing literally HUNDREDS of creatures for the Dungeon Master to torture you with. So I decided to pay HOMAGE to the original art of David C Sutherland & do this one for all the 20 sided die tossing geeks out... D & D Represent!

In the movie Home Alone, the Wet Bandits patrol potential neighborhoods in their OH-KAY Plumbing and Heating van to scope out their next heist. Maybe Harry and Marv would have blended in better if their t-shirts matched their van logo.

Rolling Acres mall opened in Akron, Ohio with Sears and 21 stores on August 6, 1975. JCPenney opened a year later as a second anchor. A new wing was added in 1977, including a third anchor store, Montgomery Ward. Further expansion in 1978 added a new, two-story wing called the Promenade, which included a food court called “Prom-N-Eat” (later renamed “Picnic Place”) and local chain O’Neil’s as a fourth anchor. The mall was foreclosed in June 2016. As of October 2016, demolition of the mall had begun with full demolition on the property expected to be complete by October 2017.
