I bet many people do not know that Route 66 begins in Chicago.

The Sign is located at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Adams St and points west and if you are here in Chicago then  go west on Adams Street and have breakfast at Lou Mitchell's. The have double yolk eggs and great coffee.

"Get Your Kicks on Rt. 66" - thanks to Nat King Cole!!  Very nice Jack Lewitz!  And of course I have to add, that Rt. 66 goes through Arizona, ending in Santa Monica, CA!!

You're right, I did not know. I have been on parts of it out west, and you can't help but think of that Nat King Cole song!

Oh my goodness, Jack Lewitz .   I couldn't wait to show this to my husband.   My brother is a musician and Route 66 is one of his staple covers he includes in his set.   My husband loves that song and heckles my brother, calling out "66", from the back of the room when we go to see him play.   My husband had never seen that Nat King Cole video or the street sign.   He loved it and said to relay his appreciation to you for sharing this memory.   Thank you so much !
