1. It ain't gonna be the same. It never matches the memories, but...
with Horn&Hardart, the Automat, Nedick's and all the other places I used to grab a quick bite at gone, maybe it will be nice to stop in.

(The reverse discrimination all-black hiring policy and no tipping policies are probably history, along with the non-whipped cream cheese.)

"The hamburger with a college education." In my day it was 45 cents and the Strawberry short-cake (with soft Ice Cream) was great too. :9

3. I went there last week

The coffee was as I remembered it --- very good. I also got a sugared donut. It was beyond great. It was an orgasmic experience that I shared with the man behind me in line.
I think it was as good for him as it was for me.

12. I've got to tell you...
...that I think of the phrase Chock Full o' Nuts and Bolts more often than is healthy in a person of my age. Thanks for providing evidence that I'm not the only one.
