Holiday Inns announce The Great American Escape… restaurant style [1960s]

Mmmmm, Holiday Inn, offering two “guest-tested” favorites: “Chick’n Dinner” and “Apple Cheddar Pie”.  I’m hopeful that whenever I go out everything I order is “guest-tested”.  I’d sure hate to be the guy who got something no guest has ever tried before. You can even pay with your Gulf Travel Card, American Express or Diners Club Card.

Anyway, take a gander at that huge pile of “Chick’n” for a family of three and the sides with about quarter stick of butter each. It’s no wonder dad had a heart attack. Of course given his hairstyle and those glasses, maybe it was for the best. This was also apparently a time when kids wore suit and tie all over the place.

Oh, and the password… is “Mmmmm!” they say.
