Route 66 Cafes and Motels

Our bicycle tour of Route 66 begins May 21st. We are going to be eating and staying at many Rt. 66 cafes and motels during our tour. Figuring out how many of these places stay in business is part of the charm of Rt. 66.

I recently stopped at a diner to eat and asked the waitress how late their restaurant was open. She said "We are open everyday from 6:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Except for Friday nights when we are open until 8:00 PM for dinner". Then I said "We are looking for a place to eat dinner on Wednesday". She said "We serve the same food for lunch and dinner. If you want dinner on Wednesday you can still eat here. You just need to eat before 3:00 PM".

Then I stopped at a motel and asked the owner how many non smoking rooms they had. The owner said to me: "How many nonsmoking rooms do you need?" I said: "We need 13 no smoking rooms". Owner: "No problem. We can make them all no smoking. All we need to do is take the ashtrays out of the rooms before you arrive".

Travelin' Route 66 is always an adventure.
