    The Holiday Inn Express is newer built, the HJ lodge was demolished many years ago. However, the Kirby's building was originally a HJ restaurant.

    In the 60s my parents and I stopped at a particular HoJo on the PA Turnpike while returning to South Jersey from visiting relatives, and the Black Raspberry ice cream was to die for.

    Black Raspberry was terrific ... later in their demise HoJo IC had Heath Bar chunks - don't recall the name, tho'.

    Sorry this isn't purely D-related, but (for nostalgia's sake) the last Howard Johnson Restaurant in the universe is in Lake George, NY:

    Those clams were my favorite. I was too young to know what they were called so I order french fried rubber bands. Everyone had a laugh.

    Now my mouth is watering.
