How about mixing two or three different flavors of Slurpee? We called those 'suicides'!
Count, that is *really* a blast from the past! Kudos to the town for keeping it as it appears it was back then. Love the art deco style lettering.
I doubt the city gives a hoot. The signage is probably still the same because the current owners don't have the money to replace it.
Where is this located?
I did that today.........but I keep them in layers. I don't let them mush all together until melting makes it inevitable. That way you enjoy each flavor, then ALL the flavors mixed as you get to the bottom. Yes, I'm a Slurpee geek.
When I was growing up in NJ the best place to buy comics was the local train station. They had the largest comic and magazine section I had ever seen. It was too far to walk or go on my bike when i was very young so I had to beg my Dad to take me. He would give in about once every two weeks. Writing about it I can still remember the smell; it was a heady mix of candy, tobacco, and fresh ink.
Great stuff! Yes, those are the little things, those places and memories from childhood that we associate with the goodness of monsterdom...they take on a special importance. I still remember odd little bookstores and newsstands....
...I would get comics, Wacky Packages, paper dolls, and monster mags....
For me it was all about finding comics, back in those days before comic book stores. That meant going to a lot of different places -book store, grocery stores, liquor stores, small markets. On Saturdays I would hop on my bike and make the circuit - William Brothers grocery store, Book Nook, the meat market (the name escapes me), Broadway Liquors, and then the one that always creeped me out, R&K Liquors. The guys behind the counter were always scowling and they'd yell at you if you took too much time looking at the books. 'Too much time' was probably a minute and a half.
I was 11-12 years old and would search the numerous (unfortunately) junkyards and alleys to find pop bottles (or "soda" as some might say).
