Lums was a chain that popped up during the late 60's and early 70 that were famous for Hot Dogs Steamed in Beer with Sherry Flavored Sourkraut. They also had the best fried Clams. The ice cold draft beer always came in Frosted Mugs. It was fantastic, I don't know why they went away.

I keep saying I am going to participate in one of your challenges BUT haiku isn't it. I have never been good at haiku. :)
