One rumor at the time put the purchase price of the Diner at $1,000,000: an unheard of price then.

My kids, in their 30s, still like to tell visitors to the Lake stories of going to BK by boat and tying up at their docks for lunch.
The Red Barn became the Boot Barn in the 70's. It was torn down to make the parking lot for Shaw's mall. The Shore Diner, Jerry's Diner was where Watermark, former Burger King. I remember the Road Kill but can't recall where it was.

I will never forget the Sportmen's Den where Jon's Roast Beef, NuWave is.

Another great place in Glendale, The Iron Pot, where the Lakeside Sharks gather. Below the Lyon's Den was the Mole's Hole.
Someday may never be an actual day.
