Remembering the local drive-in
SYCAMORE – A group of former Sip’N Dip workers will gather at the Sycamore History Museum with Mary Jo Bassing, former owner of the drive-in restaurant, to talk about the fun they had in the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s.
Their reminiscences will be the focus of the Sept. 5 Brown Bag Lunch at the museum, 1730 N. Main St. Bring your lunch, listen to the memories and recall the days when families went out for a meal and sat in their car to eat and when teenagers met friends for a root beer and tater tots after a dance or game.
“This place of employment was more than a job. It was a family of teenagers who had bosses that truly cared about their life outside of the drive-in,” former employee Jim Lyon explained. The audience will also be invited to taste samples of treats that were loved by Sip‘N Dip customers.
