December 1955 Steve Polansky Ad
Those kids in the ad look pretty happy. The boy is giving that long-hatted Santa a simpering gaze that can only mean one thing: Santa brought him gift boxes full of his favorite Steve Polansky meats!
I really like going to Steve Polansky's meat market out there on Dewey Road. It's a nice little drive into the country. And besides the nostalgia factor of going to an old style butcher shop, there's the simple fact that everything looks so good – and is good. Plus, the staff is friendly, and they really hustle to take care of you.
Besides going in there for beef short ribs every so often, I've bought their bacon and tasty bulk sausage (which we used in our Thanksgiving stuffing for the second year in a row). I've also enjoyed their homemade chicken paprikas, and I get my local honey there too.
Anyway, on a blog that celebrates so many things that aren't around anymore, it's nice once in a while to mention a business that still is.
