Lynn and Abe’s Big Adventure

April 8, 2013

in dessert, movies, restaurant, travel

Long before Abe shot/edited this video for Funny or Die (the reason for these Christmas cards) we were fans of Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.

I was reminded of the movie on our drive back from Phoenix (lot of motorcycles) so when our tummies rumbled for lunch, I was happy to see these guys off the highway.

We skipped going inside the dinosaurs, and the Burger King/BBQ place next door…

You can get it with whipped cream or a la mode – I ordered a small/plain and it was wonderful.

Also snagged a few of Abe’s fries (he ordered a veggie burger in a tortilla)…

The restaurant also has a gift shop…

I imagine this pretty much looks the same as it did when Pee Wee filmed here…
