Crown Candy Kitchen in St. Louis!
It might look like the malt is the big focus here, but I got more of a thrill out of the egg salad sandwich than anything! I've done the diner thing and I've done the malt thing, during my year of celebrating the fifties. But I have not been to Crown Candy Kitchen in years and that is something worth celebrating! CCK has been a St. Louis icon since 1913.
In the fifties, teens came to share yummy treats like the "Lovers Delight". (See writing in mirror) But I am not a teen, so I went for something June Clever might have gone for if she and Ward had stopped in for a bite. The best part of the whole outing, was thinking about my mom and knowing she used to come here in her youth. Since there are only about 10 booths, there's a chance she once sat in my very spot!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
