Goody Goody closing! (Tampa)

yes, the 80 year-old burger stand--- one of the first drive-in restaurants in the world--- is closing at teh end of the month. property is being cleared for--- surprise!--- yet more condos.

needless to say, this is a bitter blow for old restaurant enthusiasts. recently renovayted for the movie Punisher, it has looked nice for the last couple years, and the burgers and poie great as always. The former carhop turned restaurateur, Yvonne Freeman, will preside over the last days of the GG with her son.

ye have been warned. go get a burger (with the house tomato sauce---- "a little sloppy.") and some pie (prefereably their superlative butterscotch). I will be making a couple pilgrimages in the coming weeks and plan on shooting a film of a few old-timers...
