Tampa, Florida - Futuro UFO House Atop a Strip Club
It's a bird. It' a plane. It's a UFO over a strip club! Heading down Dale Mabry Hwy in Tampa, we spotted the UFO on top of the Odyssey 2001 strip club. I'm thinking some extra special dances go on in there.[Cheryl Ann Rondinelli, 04/23/2014]
- 2309 N. Dale Mabry Hwy., Tampa, FL
- Near the airport. I-275 exit 41B, then drive north five blocks on US 92. On the right. Busy highway, rough neighborhood.
- Lake Ozark, Missouri - Muffler Man Halfwit
Cruised through Lake Ozark a few weeks ago on a trip and noticed that the Halfwit that used to stand in front of what was known for years as "Dogpatch" had left town. Not sure when he departed, but I did see him during Fall of last year. Still a few shops and an arcade behind him that are open. The good news is that the Indian across the street is still there, greeting visitors.[Rob, 04/23/2014]
Warren, Ohio - David Grohl Alley
Several of the paintings and sculptures in David Grohl Alley were ruined on April 5 by a jerk with a can of spray paint (later identified as a 35-year-old from Miami, Florida). Local artists rallied and managed to clean and repair most of the artworks over the weekend of April 19-20. Some pieces were too badly damaged and were replaced with new art. In a show of solidarity, the town has vowed to add even more David-Grohl-tribute artwork.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 04/23/2014]
