Things That Aren’t Around Anymore: Restaurant Edition
Have you ever taken a drive on a lazy day and realized how many establishments are now gone, only to be replaced by bigger businesses or worse, nothing. These “ghost” businesses survive only in our memories. Years pass and you think nothing of it; people come and go as do employees. Then one day you drive by and the restaurant is gone. The doors are closed, the sign outside that once held the daily special is now empty, and the sounds of children laughing is a haunted echo of the past.
Remembering your first trip to a restaurant was important in your life. Remember the feeling of ordering for yourself for the first time? The styrofoam containers, the big, fat paper straws, the excellent customer service, and the awesome toys that came with your kids meal. How about the long forgotten menu items that once were delicious and now you must try, and fail, at making them at home?
Today, we honor restaurants and the foods that aren’t around anymore in the second installment of the series called “Things That Aren’t Around Anymore: Restaurant Edition”. You might also like to read Things That Aren’t Around Anymore: Food Edition and More Foods Not Around Anymore.
