Howard Johnson Diner Winds Down Its Last Days-- Part 1

From the August 25, 2016, Chicago Tribune by David Sharp, AP.

The closing of one of the last two Howard Johnson restaurants in Bangor, Maine, in a couple weeks will mark the end of its fried clam strips, ice cream and other menu staples that nourished baby boomers and leace the once all-over-the-place restaurant chain on the brink of extinction.

The slice of roadside Americana will no longer be served up there after September 6.

The closing will leave just Howard Johnson restaurant located in Lake George, New York.
