not to worry ace, Mr. Biscuit made his beatific presence known to me through the very aether and I just followed my tingling senses to that rarefied place where he reigns supreme ....

/\  that is a beautiful clambake, wish I was there, somewhere in Maine, right?  I like the paint spatters on the chinos worn by the geezer on the right in the long-billed cap with the infamous gold-embroidered leaping marlin .....

I don't know where it is, but that beach ("beach") could easily be Maine... As could the lobstahs of course... What's the infamous marlin you refer to stan? That's something that has escaped my knowledge...

Re: Coffee bars, diners, forgotten roadside eateries

this semi-legendary, long-defunct Miami hot dog stand/amusement arcade was one of my two favorite places to eat when I was a little kid:

Re: Coffee bars, diners, forgotten roadside eateries

Oh jeez, I didn't even see these when you posted them. These are some of my favorite pics of Frank... along with the one where he's laughing on the floor and trying to do the tablecloth trick... Tony Bennett was so young... Never really part of the in-crowd at the time but he's certainly built up the myth since then...

Re: Coffee bars, diners, forgotten roadside eateries

/\  love that pic BB, I would go to that place every day and destroy their chili dogs, kraut dogs, pastrami sandwiches, meatball sandwiches, and bar-b-q beef sandwiches, not to mention the creamy root beer from the barrel, sno-kones, hot chocolate, and caramel corn ......

also, I'm very happy old P. F. Sloan was not putting ketchup on his hot dog one afternoon long ago

Funny coincidence, just came across this fright before seeing your comment, re-reading Gay Talese's Frank Sinatra Has A Cold:

Sinatra... can, within the same hour, explode in a towering rage of intolerance should a small thing be incorrectly done for him by one of his paisanos. For example, when one of his men brought him a frankfurter with catsup on it, which Sinatra apparently abhors, he angrily threw the bottle at the man, splattering catsup all over him.
