Who remembers the Blue Bird Cafe?

Not me.

I just have this memory from the cafe. 

Who remembers when everyone smoked and you picked up a free little matchbook when you left.  The matchbooks were personalized and some were quite creative.

And I think some have become collectibles.


What this says is "If your wife can't cook DON'T DIVORCE HER - KEEP HER FOR A PET AND EAT AT OUR PLACE."

 

It was located at 504 S Main in Searcy AR.

So what is there now?

This picture is from the White County Courthouse info but I do believe there is a second hand shop in there right now.

But I can visualize this a cafe at one time.......

Well, I don't remember the Blue Bird Cafe...but if it was open during the 60's and ever served pie...I'm sure that my family had stopped by on some weekend...cause that was what we did.

Don and Harold Gene, I think this investigation of the missing matchbook covers needs to be turned over to a private investigator.  It is strange that you, Don, have lots of matchbook covers with ladies with scanty clothing.  LOL

Anita, do you think the Blue Bird was there such a short time that they have no memories?  Regarding beer cans, I once had some Billy Carter beer cans from Georgia and someone broke in my house, stole them and probably drank the beer and threw away the collectible cans!  Drat!

Debbie, we seem to have a mystery this time that no one remembers.  My husband does not remember it either.

Speaking of break ins. My neighbor was burglarized Wednesday between 10:45 am and 11:45 a.m. His door was kicked in and a tv, notebook computer, and xBox was taken. I was out during that brief time.

My very latest match acquition is not a book but a box. Fancy smancy they are these days.

Mr. Google Man has this view of the former Blue Bird Cafe for us. No help in remembering however. Sorry for the poor quality. It' amazing how many views the Google Man has for us.

Don, Mr. Google turned that into an abstract painting!  Speaking of paintings, I visited Crystal Bridges on Wednesday.  If you go there be sure to also go to the historic town square and go through the Sam Walton museum.  It has his old red pickup truck with the dog pens on the back.

I am surprised that you found any matches being given away anymore.

I got myself by the old Blue Bird Cafe and snapped a picture.  The store was not open but the owners of the business were there.  They said they had heard the place was once a honky-tonk but had never heard of the name Blue Bird Cafe.
