In one of the other Newsletters you were talking about hot dogs. Did anyone ever eat hot dogs up the street from school?  One place was named Art's.....

Thanks, Glenn!

In 1957 I found Artís Coffee Shop listed at 220-31st Street. It was owned by Art Stinnett.

In 1960, 220-31st Street had become Philís Snack Bar.

Thanks so much, Dave!

 Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener.
     That is what I'd truly like to be,
     'Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener,
     Everyone would be in love with me.
