Meet Your Neighbor: Matthew Mičetić

Today we bring to you Red Castle Games’ very own, Matthew Mičetić.  Red Castle is the longest tenured occupant of the Foster Plaza, once home to a poker room, pipe shop, and pot club.  If you’ve been to Red Castle, you’d know they have one of the best clienteles and most consistent non-food/drink businesses on Foster.  Show them some love next time you’re in the market for a game or somewhere/one to play with.

Matthew, Red CastleKnowing our neighbors makes for a brighter and safer community. Who are you, and what is your connection to the neighborhood (resident, business owner, neighborhood advocate, etc)?

I own and operate Red Castle Games, on the corner of SE 64th and Foster Road.

How long have you lived or worked in the neighborhood, and what do you think makes it unique?

I started Red Castle in November of 2009 and opened the doors on March 1st, 2010. I like that Foster Road is still a very affordable area and there is a surprising amount of foot traffic.

What are your favorite neighborhood haunts (for food, shopping, walks, drinking, entertainment, etc)?

For food, I like the pizza at O’Malleys, the black bean burger at Bar Carlo, and the great sandwiches at An Xuyen Bakery. For shopping, I like Red Castle, though there is sadly not many other places to shop. For walks, I enjoy cutting down the side streets and taking in the great older houses that adorn our part of the city.

It’s a fact, our neighborhood is pretty rad. How do we keep it that way…and then some (i.e. enhance our parks, more n’hood events, more businesses, less tweakers, etc)?

I think getting more businesses and less empty store fronts will be good for the neighborhood. It will create more vibrance. I would also love to see a streetcar going down Foster!

If you could pick a theme song for the neighborhood, or choose a celebrity that best exemplifies the character of it, what/who would it be?

We have the vibrant nightlife in our neighborhood, which is exemplified by this tango especially with the awesome Tango Berretin being down the street!
