An younger engineer from Huntsville was heading to Silicon Valley to a Research Center. I recommended that he go to Dinah's Shack. I was extremely upset that it had been closed. I discussed what happening to the old restaurants we used to frequent which also included Villa Felice in the San Jose. Age here is 65 and I am in a wheel chair now.However Palo Alto Restaurants and Clubs hold a lot of found memories for my Wife and I. I have a friend who is purchasing a VLJ for starting a charter service. I guess me and the wife better make the trip back again before all the old places we loved are are all gone and replaced with chain operations.
I looked up in my old travel log. I had been to Dinah's about 27 times and took cabs from the SF Airport during layovers when I flew in from other cities.
Just out of curiosity is the Tar and Feathers still there?
