Adding another chill to this dreary winter...

is the news that Velvet Freeze has closed their last two locations.
After more than 60 years in the business, this is very depressing.
According to this Journal Star article:
"The restaurant chain opened in 1938, and at its height, there were 90 locations from Chicago to St. Louis, Thomas said. The Peoria-area Velvet Freezes added Wonder dogs to their menus in the 1950s."
I'm glad we visited in December so my husband could have one last Wonder dog fix.
