You'll Always Remember...
Businesses with Unforgettable Names
Do Drop Inn
No longer welcoming drop-ins on Route 66 near Barstow, California
Fools Rush Inn
Where angels fear to tread near Mendocino, California
Budget Budget Suites
How low can they go? Las Vegas, Nevada
Curl Up N Dye
The ultimate beauty parlor pun, Las Vegas, Nevada

While the Do Drop in on historic Route 66 is no longer cooking (despite the "Kitchen Open" mural), the other businesses pictured here are alive and well. The Fools Rush Inn has nine cottages overlooking the Pacific Ocean on Highway 1 about two miles south of Mendocino in Little River, California. The Budget Budget Suites in Las Vegas, Nevada, are doing their best to out-budget the better-known Budget Suites of America, a chain with locations in Phoenix and Las Vegas. Another Las Vegas landmark, Curl Up N Dye is one of two salons owned by "Davyo," -- a hairdresser by day and a standup comedian by night.
