Me and the Mrs. drove 50 miles down Route 66 for some milkshakes. To do it. Because we can. Believe it or not we ran into a couple Mancunians. Yeah. Two dudes from Manchester, England. I brought our drinks out as these cats were taking pictures of our Rambler and chatting up my wife. Polite like. They flew to Chicago, rented a 5 liter Mustang and are driving all the way to L.A. on Route 66. One thing led to another and we made fun of Ian Brown’s monkey walk and Liam Gallagher’s version of the same popular Manchester giddyup. Fun times. Shakes, fast cars and Route 66. Eat your heart out, Russia. #amcrambler#v8#route66#motherroad#manchester#roadtrip#milkshakes#mancunian#fordmustang#polkadotdrivein#braidwood
🤤 Morning stop-off on the 𝐌𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐑𝐨𝐚𝐝 🤤
Missing the hearty (but unhealthy) breakfasts that kept us going on our road trip.
A breakfast of crumpets, jam and yoghurt doesn’t quite compare to pancakes, sausage and hash browns...
🚘A nostalgic look at the “Main Street of America.” 🛣
This exhibit is a compilation of memories about the Historic Route 66, of how the past dialogues with the present of this site and the adventurous spirited who get their kicks on the road.
The exhibit shows the photography of Andy Romanoff and Brian Helder; Wendy Jack’s detailed diorama of a gas station and souvenir shop along a collective art installation from local artists, informative panels, interactive panels and more fun facts.
