Archive Diver: Ad for Sports Rock Cafe at The Bakery Centre in South Miami from 1988

This week Archive Diver brings you an ad for the Sports Rock Cafe, a bar food/health/entertainment concept at a failed mall, the Bakery Centre. The Bakery Centre, now the location for The Shops At Sunset Place on US1 and SW 57th Ave., was a pink, 9-acre, commercial wasteland that kids used to ride their bikes through, smoke pot, and throw stuff openly inside of. Maybe the only success story to come out of it was the AMC movie theater that was on the ground floor. Did anybody ever eat at the Sports Rock Cafe? Leave a comment. Here's the full ad as it appeared in the New Times in July, 1988.
