But do play ball!! Thanks & Love, Flo" was missing? OK, so that was just me. However, at last weekend's farewell bash to its longtime space on Elizabeth Street (about 400 folks showed up and a giant panda had to be ejected), some Dad's Garage fans made off with two pieces of pricey signage — the venue's new parking sign to direct patrons to parking at Bass Lofts across the street from the theater's new home at 7 Stages on Euclid Avenue and even more impressive, somehow revelers were able to sneak off with the large yellow Dad's Garage logo that once hung over the door.
Eighteen years after its founding, Dad’s Garage Theatre will soon be leaving its familiar Inman Park industrial-building home—but not by choice.
