I received a short but hilarious email last week from Kendra over at Moen. She must have been reading my blog from the beginning, because after wishing me a good morning, she stated, "I count on you every year to tell me when Dog 'n Suds is opening. No info yet?"
I thought it was funny, because last weekend I had a gnawing feeling (for chili dogs?) that it might be open already, although Sunday was only the first day of April. Needless to say I didn't make it over there due to lack of time.
Not only did Kendra bust me for negligence, she then emailed back later to tell me that her girl friend had called the drive-in and Dog 'n Suds was indeed open. Thus I failed in my effort to provide my readers with timely and important information. Sorry!
As you can see from the photo above, I did make it over this this past Saturday and picked up a half-gallon of their creamy root beer. The drive-in has been spruced up with a snappy green color scheme, and my cute car-hop confirmed to me that Ilene is still the owner.
So all is still right with the world. Be sure to make it over to Dog 'n Suds, there were way too many empty parking spaces when I was there! (It had just opened, however!)
Speaking of Dog 'n Suds (as I usually am), I found this ad for an Oberlin Dog 'n Suds in an April 23, 1962 Lorain Journal. Does anyone remember exactly where it was?
