You might remember that back in November, Rick had sent me a 1949 ad (below) that revealed that after Joseph and Bela Herring sold the Bohemian Tavern, they opened Herring’s Tavern on Lake Road, seven miles west of Vermilion. (As you remember, Herring's Tavern later became the Philbo House.)
Indeed, Rick’s article (below) includes the names of the men associated with the Philbo House: Phil Provenza and Bob Arheit.

"I first ate at Philbo House in 1970, on a date with my future wife, and several times thereafter. The food, especially the steaks, were always perfectly prepared. Ahh, good memories!"
Thanks for sharing those good memories (and articles too), Rick!
