We took a little trip back in time when I had lunch today with my son Rob, my daughter-in-law, Leah, and Wil and Anna. We went to Gunther Toody's, a 1950's style diner, one of those fun places that is really more of a caricature of a 1950's diner with a black and white checkerboad floor, the hostess dressed in a poodle skirt and saddle shoes and the waitresses wearing bright red lipstick that matched the shiny red vinyl booths. Their name tags had them named Bitsy, or Babs, or Susie-Q. Not today, but in the past I have seen them all stop what they are doing and do The Twist when the Chubby Checker hit played over the sound system (thoughthe song was not a big hit until 1960). Modern TVs play cartoons from the '50s. I'm amazed the kids from that era didn't all kill each off other with mallets or blow each other up with TNT as violent as some of those cartoons are. It's a kid-friendly, fun place with a good sense of humor.
There's lots of neon
A very large menu heavy on burgers, fries and shakes.
Even the ceiling tiles are decorated
Wil liked his macaroni and cheese
and so did Anna
An of course there is a juke box
I wish they had done The Twist today. I would have done it with them.
