Owensboro Businesses That Have Been Long-Time Neighbors
I guess it never occurred to me, after all these years, just how hand-in-hand Moonlite BBQ Inn and The Big Dipper seem to go.
These two legendary Owensboro restaurants are legendary for a reason.
But I never thought about how long they have been neighbors until Chad showed me this:
Yep. You can't have Bert without Ernie or macaroni without cheese. And I can't imagine NOT seeing both Moonlite and the Dipper at the same time while driving on West Parrish Avenue.
But what about OTHER Owensboro businesses that have been neighbors for a very long time.
I literally drove all over town and only came up with two more. So I posed the question on Facebook. Still, only two more--The Colonel House Motel/Diamond Lanes and JDQ (Johnson Depp Quisenberry)/Wesleyan Park Plaza. Good ones!
And let's add the following:
McDonald's/Long John Silver's (I know it's a new McDonald's building, but the business has been there forever and a day.)
Haley-McGinnis Funeral Home/Theatre Workshop of Owensboro
These other four duos may not have been neighbors for 50 years, but it's very close, one way or the other.
Am I missing any? If so, let me know.
