I would like to introduce a new and very exciting feature on the Fridge Magnet blog. This journey along Nostalgia Lane is brought to you thanks to a junk drawer clean-up in the Nair/Swank household.
While engrossed in this clean-up, I came across a plastic grocery bag stuffed full of restaurant to-go menus. A certain male someone in the Nair/Swank household has an affinity for to-go menus and seems to collect them voraciously and then keep them for years after a restaurant served its last meal.
As we went through them and sorted out all of the ones for restaurants that no longer exist, it occurred to me that perhaps these menus might be of interest to somebody. Somebody like my hubby, who has lived in Roanoke for all of his life and can remember eating at just about every restaurant that ever opened — and then closed.
Introducing Retro Menu Madness! On an occasional basis, I’ll put up an old menu on the blog and see how many readers remember eating at that particular restaurant. Drumroll please for the first ever retro menu, below the jump…
Remember this one, folks? The pasta, the veal scalloppini and chicken cacciatore and sausage sandwich and pizza pies? Just look at that romantic dinner those folks are having. But why does it look like a nurse is waiting on them? And why does the man have two glasses of wine while the woman has none?
