    Been slacking in my sign postings - One of my favorite things to do:

    Zeller Inn - Ottawa, IL.

    Image

    Posted about this place before here on LTH, been a hotel/restaurant/bar off and on since 1871. This is a true drinking palace. Pressed tin ceiling, tiffany lamps, intricate tile work on the bar, etc. Shot and a beer spot that has been restored/maintained fantastically.

    Zeller Inn
    615 Columbus
    Ottawa, IL.

    Grabbed this one on the way back home from Geneva on Friday night: Norway Store - est 1848 - One stop shopping:

    Ive been out here 10 years, and have never eaten here - I do get alot of veggies from the farmstand that shares the parking lot though., just dug the signage on this day

    Norway Store
    3655 IL 71
    Norway, IL.

    Was up wasting time in the Hinkley / Waterman area when I spotted this relic - not food but any neon is cool - Shady Lawn Motel - Hinkley, IL (closed):

    The brothers have been to 54 bars that feature the sign out front, sharing the establishments' atmosphere, food offerings, decor and how much each charges for an Old Style. The blog also has a map of where they've been, including a few dozen spots on the North and Northwest sides.


    What a fun idea!

    It is my understanding that this glorious, iconic sign is available. If you're interested in acquiring it, please take a look at this post.

    Thanks,
