Cool. I'm an hour from King of Prussia so the next time I'm down there at the mall I'll look it up.

My first "real job" was working at the Gino's in Lancaster. At that time there was one Gino's and one McDonalds's, each on opposite ends of town. That would have been 1962. Black pants, white shirt, and black shoes (I had to supply them there were no uniforms then). The shoes, by the end of the summer, were covered in French fry oil!

Burgers: 10 cents, cheeseburgers: 15 cents, small coke: 10 cents, fries, 10 cents. For 35 cents you could have yourself the basic meal! Ah, the good old days. Woodies in the parking lot (cars) and oldies blaring from their radios.

We had Ginos scattered all over the Baltimore area, I was the kid that would take the pickles off the burger and flip them up so they would stick on the ceiling tiles. hellyes

Im seeing it would probably take us an hour to get up there, I dont care, I miss me a Gino Giant, remember the cardboard wrap that would go around the Giant?? that was my crown king

Sweet!!!!

The one & only Arthur J Donovan made the trek up to King of Prussia to chow down at Gino's

Another traveler to this weekend's opening was Marchetti's championship teammate Art Donovan.

"Everything was delicious," Donovan says. "They got a great hamburger, bigger and juicier than the old Gino Giant. The fries were delicious. And I had the best milkshake I ever tasted — it's a real solid drink.

"I brought five hamburgers home and ate them all, over two nights, with some Schlitz."

UPS had a sales program, leading sales gets dinner for two, your choice..Well yours truly won it..It was at the time when Shula was opening his steak house in Baltimore, opening night was a black tie affair. So I told my boss thats where I wanted to go..He got his tickets Smile

Well the night went on, fancy shrimp, raw beef, champagne the whole 9 yards..The menus were made out of NFL footballs, and dam they were nice looking..Now a UPS man in a suit equals TROUBLE..

If you tuck one of the menus in the back of your pants, and drape the suit coat over it...Nobody can tell hellyes
