Pete and Tari at Shady Dell

I'm more than a little behind with posting. How far behind? I've been meaning to post these photos since February. Pete Geniella is my colleague at West and Clear, my friend and one hell of a photog. When he and his lovely wife, Tari, made the drive from Fort Worth to San Francisco a few months ago, they stopped at the Shady Dell in Bisbee, Ariz. It's a wonderful little MCM anachronism that I must add to my travel to-do list. Sez Pete:

"A place like The Shady Dell has real potential to go overboard on the retro-nostalgia-George Lucas-PT Cruiser-Diner-Letterman’s Jacket-sock hop tip, but they managed to keep their pants on and delivery a pleasant, authentic experience."

i couldn't find a way to contact you directly through the blog...I'm wondering if you know anything about the Sunset Heights South neighborhood in FTW? It occupies about a 5 square block radius to the west and north of where Hulen and Vickery intersect. I've seen some listings for some houses there that seem to have some MCM flair, but i haven't found much else on the neighborhood...

Great blog by the way.

Hi Justin. I recently discovered that neighborhood too! Did you ever buy a home there? I love that I could ride my cruiser to Central Market. There's a home beautiful home that was recently listed on Micky Lynn. Not sure if I want to do that remodeling though.
