Did you know Shelby City Park used to have a restaurant?
I didn't until this morning. I was over at the park talking to Charlie Holtzclaw and Tommy Forney about the park's 60th anniversary celebration. While talking, Charlie pulled out an old pamphlet about the park that included, among other things, a menu for the now defunct restaurant.
"It was located where our offices and aerobics room are now," Holtzclaw said.
I wish it was still there - along with the same prices. For $1.75 you could get "Lobster Louie" - sliced lobster on lettuce bed, potato salad, hard boiled eggs, cole slaw, sliced tomato, olives, sweet pickles, thousand island dressing, bread, butter or crackers.
Sounds good, doesn't it?
