Howard Johnson's Children's Menu #11 (1963)
The news keeps saying that it's going to snow here in St. Louis this week, giving me the perfect opportunity to finally post this wintery themed, vintage, digest-sized Howard Johnson comic book / menu from 1963 (produced by Custom Comics) --as if the North Pole and Santa panels weren't reason enough in December! So follow along on a kookball, comedic adventure with Simple Simon and The Pieman, (anyone know the artist?), solve some puzzles while you're at it, and when you're done and built yourself up a big 'ol appetite, why not order something from the centerfold menu-- as usual, per my own childhoods spent at HoJo's-- I'll be having the grilled frankfort on toasted roll with potato chips and chocolate chip ice cream.
