News From Along Route 66, February 2017: Bizarre Foods and Art's Motel

FEBRUARY 13TH--  The Route 66 episode on "Bizarre Foods" on the Travel Channel aired Feb. 21, Tuesday, at 8 pm.  Wish I had seen it.

FEBRUARY 15TH--  Art's Motel in Farmersville, Illinois, has reopened after being closed for six years. They have eleven rooms and charge just $50 a night, niot a bad price for a slice of Americana.

 There are no plans to reopen the restaurant but the new owners are willing to lease it.

Art McAnamey opened it in 1937 so celebrating its 80th year this year.

Figure we'll have to stay there this summer (before it closes again).
