Say it ain't so! Cy's Roost was a great change of pace bar with good food when I went to school from 77-81. "Cy's Fries" hit the spot after a few hours of drinking. Met my wife there in '81.
Back in the early 70's Cy's Roost opened up a 2nd floor. I think the 2nd floor was previously apartments. They had 4 or 5 small rooms with wall to wall shag carpet. You sat on the floor and they had big pillows for your comfort. We usually got there early and were able to reserve a room for 10-12 people.
As I recall the pizza was very good at Cy's Roost. Back then Schlitz was the beer of choice, Cy's Roost had a wall decorated with Schlitz wall paper. In a few places they removed the "L" from the word Schlitz - which was very appropriate because if you drank too much Schlitz the next morning you had the beer sch*tz.
