The one thing everyone remembers about Babe Keller’s restaurant
OK, this is just fun.
We talked almost six months ago about memories of Babe Keller’s Restaurant, and as part of that, Wayne Breighner had some stories to tell about how that restaurant’s owners were real jokesters. And the fun stories continued from some other commenters.
Rodney Beaverson says, “I grew-up around the corner from Kellers restaurant, and remember a sign that hung above the bar area that read ‘Helen Waite is our credit manager. If you want credit, go to Helen Waite.’ Always thought that was the funniest sign I ever saw.”
And another commenter, who didn’t leave a name, wrote, “First of all thank you for the great work you do on the DO YOU REMEMBER articles. One additional note about KELLER’S RESTAURANT. There used to be a really neat sign behind the counter and it read: Helen Wait is our credit manager, if you want credit go to Hell and Wait. I was only in the place about three times but I remember the sign. I am a retired social studies teacher from Northeastern and tried to incorporate as much local flavor as possible, much to the chagrin of some of my administrators. My thoughts were always that if people don’t pass the local items on to others that it will die and we don’t want that to happen. You should be well informed about your local items. Thanks again for your great work.”
Well, thank YOU – for sharing a fun story and for trying to make history local. I know some other people who share that idea as well!
