Remember the old days of going to a pizza parlor and drinks were served in those translucent red plastic cups with either the logo of the parlor or a soda logo on them?
I loved those cups and totally wanted to pilfer them each time I went. They had a pretty distinctive feel to them especially if it was battered up and the plastic was worn and fibrous.
I haven’t seen those cups in years. Maybe even a couple decades. But how often do we eat in pizza parlors anymore. How many even still exist?
A friend of mine, though, just came across them at a joint in downstate Illinois and he sent me this…
Do note that my one true soda vice is served there… Mello Yello. On the rare occasion I find a place with it in the machine, I ALWAYS get it. Without fail. I love that drink and it’s just not the same in cans or bottles.
And to drink it in the translucent red plastic cups? Heaven!
