i'm ballin today over at Valerie's blog, Wine & Summer. Come visit !
but before you go...let's take it back to some totally awesome NJ (maybe in other states too?) establishments that i wish still existed TODAY!
1. The Ground Round.
Any restaurant that served popcorn in a basket and had 'pay your weight' for your kids is awesome in my book. i wish this restaurant was still around... i know a lot of parents with little ones would appreciate it!
a restaurant in my hometown that gave out balloons, had a bear and mouse musical show, and had the best pizza, AND special tokens to play games. what more fun could a 5 year old want?
oh the good old rollermagic. this fine establishment (ok- so they're still in business!!) had the most AMAZING pizza ever. are you seeing a trend here? i love food and pizza... these were the days that if you slow skated with a boy... you were the shit. there was a 4 lane bowling alley (half the length of a real one) in this place... it was cool when you would take a break from the dice game and the hokey pokey or chicken dance (ON SKATES BTW) to play bowling. of course an arcade as well. do arcades still exist?
|oh how those yellow booths bring back so many memories!!|
i love reminiscing about the past... i wish i was still young ::sigh::
