Lynn and Abe’s Big Adventure

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…

…headed straight into the Wheel Inn Restaurant instead.

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)…

…dipped in guacamole.

The restaurant also has a gift shop…

…and a bigger room in the back for meetings.

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

    Silly that I know this but, I’m pretty sure that’s a British Boy Band that’s popular right now called One Direction, as the top left sticker says “1D”. :p The only reason I know is because they were in last Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, one of my favorite events every year. :) I remember them singing because the poor boys seriously looked like they were wearing colorful skinny jeans out of a sixth grade girl’s closest! As for the “Tropical Tattoos” picture next to it, the huge dolphin and sea turtle on her back are too funny! Mid 90’s kitsch at it’s best!

    One Direction — Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry & Louis, duh! (Sorry, household is full of little girls).

      I knew I could count on you.

      Yeah right, blame it on the girls. I know a directioner when I see one.

        I have to admit, I do like most their songs.

    I’m so jealous of your adventure! It looks like so much fun. I’m sure you’re happy to be back home though! <3
