Roadfoodin' with Vince
I saw this image at Packerville, U.S.A.
and marveled at the combination of two of my passions. Imagine sitting at a lunch counter with Lombardi on your left and buffetbuster
on your right debating the best defense against the Packers' sweep and whether to get the Coconut Cream or Dutch Apple Pie (trick questions, the Packers' sweep could not be stopped and you will order both of the pies). The above photo was for a 1960 LOOK magazine article on the Packers (larger image here
, click it to enbiggen). Sneezer's Snack Shop
has been long gone, but its location on Ashland Avenue near City Stadium made it a regular stop for Lombardi's breakfasts. Collectable ashtrays from Sneezer's are still available at a steep price
Anyone have other pictures of sports stars or celebrities at Roadfood-type restaurants?
