Winding The Town Clock > Atlanta, IL

Whilst in Atlanta I was made an honorary clock winder-upper-type-person. This was a huge honor and privilege for me as there is only even been 11 people that have wound the clock! Made my day!

Palms Grill Café > Route 66, Atlanta, IL

So I left Springfield after spending time with the lovely Ellie to take a trip to Atlanta. My first stop was the Palms Grill. I was to meet with Bill to sample their award-winning pie and I was very excited about that! Watch the video for my reaction!

The Palms Grill opened in 1934 and is at the center of Downtown Atlanta on Route 66. It was the bus stop for the Greyhound and if you wanted to be picked up you just flipped the switch for the ball light at the bottom of their huge neon sign! Amazing!
