Red Carpet Lounge

The above photo shows a wide shot of the Red Carpet Lounge when a Pizza Hut was located beside it.

The Red Carpet met its demise after an incident on September 22, 1977 when a 19-year-old Central teenager shot a Seneca resident in the left thigh (no students were involved) in the back of the lounge. The establishment's reputation was badly blemished and it never recovered its former popularity, closing that winter.

Tiger Town Tavern opened in the old Red Carpet location in the fall of 1978.
