A new season starts this Sunday night at 6:30pm at the A&W on Memorial Ave. right here in Thunder Bay. Also be sure to get your entry in to win a specially prepared Harley Motorcycle before the closing date on May 29. Click here for more details and to enter http://www.aw.ca/
Here is Larry's letter on the details. NEXT here and continued below is a bit of A&W History that some of you many not know about!!
Here are a couple of old A&W photos from somewhere in North America showing the original Cruise Night drive-ins....Gotta love the logo in the first picture, "If you Drive, Drink A&W Root Beer". That's a great motto for today as well. Also check out some of the prices on the front of the drive-in in the second photo here.
To add to the interest here in Canada, is a little A&W Canadian history too. The last picture here is of my grand-daughter and Patrick Wilson's daughter taken last year at "Cruising the Dub 2010".
I am going to try a few more links here...hope they work! First is an old A&W Radio jingle heard in the late 1950's click here http://www.radiowest.ca/sound/a&w.mp3
The next is a link to local vintage A&W photos and items of interest on this blog done last year http://hotrodsandjalopies.blogspot.com/search?q=a%26w ...be sure to view them and come back.
Thanks to Lawrence at A&W for hosting the long awaited "Cruisin' the Dub" right here in Thunder Bay!
