let's Put an 'n' to It

August 04, 1996

About the reference in "Googie Woogie" to Johnie's Broiler: It's seldom mentioned that the tatty Taj Mahal was built in 1958 as Harvey's Broiler and stayed as such until about 1969, when it was sold and its name changed to Johnie's Broiler. The single "n" caught my eye, too, and it struck me as obvious that there wasn't room on the sign for another "n." The length of the sign is as it always was; only the word "Harvey's" was replaced.
