The Gobbler!

It's hard to beleive this place went out of business! I remember going there for big family dinners in the 1970's. The restaurant / bar area had shag carpet on the walls, and if I remember right, the circular bar rotated...

Take the tour (click the 'lets go gobblin!' text). You won't regret it!

I especially liked the description of the B&W couch morphing into a panda. Better not consume too much of Mike D.'s stash or you could be in for a bad trip if you are staying at the gobbler.

His collection of churches should be destroyed by God. When this architect dies, he'll have to answer to the Ultimate Design Review Board!

At least this guy has a unique style, even though I think its horrible.

I was sympathetic at first. . .until I saw The Normandy Apartments. El Yucko Supremo.

Multifamily was NOT his forte.
