End of an Era

It's the end of an era: Albie's Beef Inn, located at the Travelodge on Hotel Circle in Mission Valley, is closing after 53 years (new owner, rent increase, blah blah) on December 23rd.

It is famous for genteel paintings of 1960s ladies in sheer negligees (delightful!).

So is a unique time capsule beloved by many (including us and my parents, my dad in particular). Au revoir, Albie's...we knew ye well.

Adam's, Albie's sister restaurant, served awesome breakfasts, including delicious corn fritters served with butter and syrup. It is, of course, also closing.
