A stray post here. Just cause I feel like it.
Went to Greenport, Long Island, for the first time last week, and found it a veritable treasure trove of great old signs. Had to share them. 140-year-old Claudio's above brags its the oldest, continually operating, same-family-owned restaurant in the U.S. (I think Antoine's of New Orleans, founded in 1840, and run by the same family, might have something to say about that.)
My favorite is below. Whiskey Wind Tavern is one of the best bar names I've ever heard. It's open every day of the year.
