The Rendezvous Cafe
Who would have believed that the old give-away match book covers from years ago when almost everyone smoked would be somewhat collectible today? Well, evidently they are. This one from Searcy AR's beloved Rendezvous Cafe is now on ebay with a sales price of $4.99. It is historic in giving its phone number of 223 and saying it had 24 years of service already!
So what year might this have been? It was probably before we had the abbreviation AR for Arkansas instead of ARK. Zip codes started in the early 1960's. The old Rendezvous building is still there but you'd never recognize it. One of my favorite pictures of it is found here.
Another thing is a little bit puzzling. How did that hard-to-spell name come about in a little-bitty town like Searcy AR? Quickly, look away and try to spell it!!!
