Sad so many kitschy, and iconic pieces of Americana are gone. :crying_cat_face:

Despite living in the area for almost 30 years, I’ve never been there. I always thought it was a coffee shop - silly me. Will have to check it out someday @bbqboy.

I am immediately reminded of a trip to the Minnesota State Fair in the mid-80s, where I saw some kind of food being sold out of a giant bell pepper, with big sign over top that said “Hot Dago Sandwiches.” As a Jersey girl who went to high school with a lot of Italian American kids, I was pretty shocked. Those sandwiches are still around, or they were as late as 2018.

Yep, definitely still around.
