Snapshots from my Childhood in Chicago in the 1970s
My parents had a restaurant in Chicago in the early 1970s. It was a place of real camaraderie, great burgers and drinks. It had a real Cheers vibe!
My parents are on the far left; my mom is sitting on my dad’s lap.
This image is a great memory of my childhood. I remember each of those people who worked there like it was yesterday.
And I loved going to my dad’s restaurant. I really wanted to be a waitress, but I hadn’t learned how to spell, so I would draw pictures of what people wanted and go tell the cooks what to make.
I have so many fond memories of the Sub Pub, mostly because it was truly a community of friendly and kind people – from the people who worked there to the customers. It was a great place to hang out.
We moved a few years later to California, but that time at the Sub Pub was one of the integral moments that defined my early Chicago upbringing. ~shared by @leesaevansstyle
