Zippy at the Summit Diner

[Zippy, March 13, 2015.]

I am thrilled to see Zippy visiting the Summit Diner in Somerset, Pennsylvania. In years past, our family stopped for dinner there many times when schlepping eastward on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Now, no Turnpike, no diner.

The Summit Diner had — and perhaps still has — postcards. It also had jukeboxes. And a phone booth outside.

On the other side of the postcard:

The Summit Diner, located at 791 N. Center Ave., Somerset, PA, 15501, just off Pennsylvania Turnpike Exit 10. Phone 814–445–7154. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The Summit now closes at 10:00 p.m.

Not too far from my parents' hometowns. On the way back north from a visit, my dad decided to take a scenic route, and in some small town on the way we found a car hop type place in the middle of nowhere. I wish I could remember the name or where.
