Jimmie’s of Savin Rock

with 5 comments

Stopped at Jimmie’s in the Savin Rock section of West Haven Connecticut when I up north in June.  Although the current restaurant has been up for several decades, it’s a stark change from the Hot Dog stand of the 50s and 60s with Ronnie screaming out “Split Two”!

Two split Roesslers hot dogs, fries, and cole slaw – went down easy the the cold brew.  I didn’t really remember the neon green relish but I guess they always served it.  It’s the hot relish at the Glenwood Drive-In I love!

San Francisco Restaurants

with one comment

There are so many places in San Francisco to eat.  Every kind of taste or ethic food is available at a wide range of afford.  I was totally caught up in the signage.  I loved the streets and signs (some pretty old, so you know they’ve been in business for a long time).  Some were new, or funky, or cute, or reminiscent of Bogart.  All great places.  I wish I could have tried them all.  One thing for sure – there’s no excuse for not eating and walking in San Francisco!
