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
