go go go go gone

This weekend, after the mad holiday, my long suffering galpal Leacy agreed to join me for a tour of New Jersey's scenic Rt. 130. It's the highway that time forgot and ain't I happy. Mom and Pop businesses abound on this laidback corridor between Princeton and Philadelphia, everything from pizza joints to diners to liquor stores seemingly unchanged since 1965. Thanks to Randy at www.roadsideonline.com for the diner tips that lead to my discovering the joys of 130, and er, the strangely disproportionate girls so well illustrated above.

Illusions: We ain't under any

Michael said...

Is the sing "landmarked"? The new owner might be required to keep it as is;)

EV Grieve said...

Nice!

Will the owner take 0% down?

Look forward to some more photos of130...

Glad you enjoyed! What about Leacy though!?

Did your galpal allow you to stop in at Illusions Go-Go Bar for a drink?

I like your choice of illustration of those "Mom and Pop businesses".
Is this where you would find Tony Soprano?

Cyd said...

Hi from Leacy (aka Cyd)... it was great fun... I kept thinking "I can't believe this still exists! and without irony!"

Virginia said...

well Leacy you deserve a fine dinner somewhere for schlepping along with KM on this excursion! I think the comments today are as much fun as that fine go go bar! Thanks for evoking some pretty fun memories KM, but The Illusion was a Pop business, no Mom involved I think.

You ain't seen nothing yet!And if you compare this "go go bar" to Scores, or some other supposedly high end Manhattan strip club, this is truly a Mom and Pop joint.

Virginia said...

Well bring em on KM. Bad Strip Clubs could be a possible series you know.

I love the irony in this illusory dedication to Sal whomever she might be.

BTW Captain Clarke bridge still exists - it has featured a couple of times on Hyde DP
