Fabulous! More photos I’m stealing for my smartphone.
Ah, yes! I can see myself drinking there. *sigh*
Thanks I was hoping for some Googie.I like some of the ones with soaring curved roofs.
I would love to eat there. I think a nice slice of cherry pie sounds perfect. 🙂
I even love the strangely gelatinous ruby red rendition from the freezer — oh Sara Lee!
Remind me to tell you about the waitress with the mile high bleach blond bee hive at the Denny’s on Foothill in Fontana circa 1961. Thank you for the Googie!
Yes! And next time you’re here we have to stop for a burger:
I live near Johnies, a coffee-shop most Googie-esque: http://www.nbclosangeles.com/entertainment/movies/Johnies-Coffee-Shop-107291539.html
Johnies has long been closed, but Pann’s (sort-of, kind-of close to work) hasn’t: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pann%27s
Can anyone deny their delightful beauty?
