There will be no more pairs of bare, sandy river feet slapping across the pavement at Greaser’s Drive In. No more happy children dripping more ice cream onto their faces than into their mouths; no more beds of flowers or hanging pots overflowing with petunias and sweet potato vines. No more crispy French fries dunked in cheese and smothered in ketchup; no more juicy, grass-fed beef burgers covered in crunchy coleslaw; no more Greaser’s Drive In.
