Along 66, April 2018: Of Restaurants and Motels


These are taken from the Route 66 News site, which has an entry for every day and often more than one.  Plus the site has pictures and a lot more information.  I just pick the stories in which I have the most interest.

APRIL 3--  Eat-Rite Diner in St. Louis reopens April 5.  Unfortunately, though, I won't be visiting it or any other Route 66 site in St. Louis for awhile as they desecrated that Confederate statue in Forest Park.  I have a boycott, if you will, going on for that city.

APRIL 4--  The Parkview Inn in Bloomington, Illinois, is being rebuilt beginning next week.  It was destroyed by a fire in 2016.  We've never been to it before.

APRIL 5--  The De Anza Motor Lodge sign in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has been taken down for restoration.  It is one of many steps being taken to rehabilitate the long-closed motel into a boutique motel.

APRIL 5--  The El Vado Motel is getting closer to reopening in Albuquerque.

Always Happy To See Old Motels Reopening.  --RoadDog
