Bad News in New Haven
The Yankee Doodle has closed for good. I am terribly sad about it. This was a tiny place with a row of 6 stools and a counter, and they put butter on their hamburgers, and they stuffed their hot dogs with cheese and wrapped them in bacon, and they mixed up vanilla cokes, and you could eat and eat and it would only cost you a dollar. I tried to go there last time I was in New Haven and it was suspiciously closed at lunchtime – my worst fears are now confirmed.
“The place is small, the food is great. It’s worth your while to stand and wait.”
Who will put butter on my hamburgers now?
