Our first on the scene reporter Till Eulenspiegel checks in from beautiful Glen Burnie Maryland with this report:
“Ann’s Dari-Creme has been there since 1951. I didn’t start going there until the 90’s, but as I understand it, it is pretty much the same today as it was then.
In the 80’s, they built a shopping mall all around it. I think the mall wanted to buy Ann’s and bulldoze it, but
they wouldn’t sell. Now the mall is starting to fade, but Ann’s is still going strong. I bet the mall will be bulldozed before Ann’s will.”
Famous for their footlong hotdogs as well as their milkshakes and soft-serve ice cream- thanks for the tip, Till!
With Retro Roadmap, Mod Betty makes it easy for you to find Cool Vintage Places - (grand)mom & (grand)pop places that have stood the test of time while still retaining their authentic charm.
Along the way we'll have some Retro Fun at gatherings that celebrate the best of the decades before us.
By visiting and supporting these places you will be helping to keep them alive, and to reinforce that their vintage look and charm is something worth saving and preserving, not stuccoing over in an attempt to update. We love the old stuff!
Invest in the kind of world that you want to live in, wherever you are!
