Dishroom shift with Ken
Some food still looks edible
I double dare him
( That really happened; sometimes
we would finish a chocolate pudding.)

Hotels Were Tasty Haunts
I’m a deltiologist, which is a person who collects postcards. When I saw
your article on food memories in the spring 2017 issue, I went into my
postcards collection for Lewisburg and vicinity and found three cards that
may be of interest.
1. The Hotel Lewisburger, or “The Burger,” not a place to eat but for a
beer or two on a late Friday afternoon.
2. The Hotel Milton, for whiskey sours and a steak sandwich at the bar.
3. The Hotel Edison in Sunbury, a place to take the parents for dinner
when dear old dad was picking up the tab.
