VIDEO VAULT | Iconic neon 'Happy Shirt' dry-cleaning sign was mainstay of Steiner Cleaners

The Neon Museum is home to signs that once adorned many of the storied hotels, casinos and restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip, Fremont Street and elsewhere.

One of the more whimsical displays that gets attention is the "Happy Shirt." This particular sign came from long-time, local dry-cleaning business owner Vic Plassman who had lost his lease and decided to have the image from above his storefront sent over. The contribution was unsolicited.

"So they called me," remembers Plassman. "'What are you dropping this old sign off for?' And I said 'I just hate to get rid of it. Young Sign will scrap it, probably'."

The Happy Shirt had been a familiar fixture in the strip mall on the southwest corner of Tropicana and Maryland Parkway starting in the late 1960s, which is when Plassman first met original owner Herman Steiner.

"I went to work for him and then I bought the cleaners from him," recounts Plassman. "Mr. Steiner, and it was his daughter that designed the sign.

In the Know: Twin Peaks, Newk's Eatery, more coming to Naples Blvd.

It’s too early to know a timeline for construction and a target launch date for the restaurant.

“The franchisee group has still to get plans approved through the building department, so generally still a year away,” Michael Locey, chief development officer for Dallas-based Twin Peaks Restaurants , replied in an email in November.

The restaurant will be developed by Davie-based DMD Florida Restaurant Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Jafrejo Holdings LLC . The company, which also launched Twin Peaks in Fort Myers, holds the exclusive development rights to the national restaurant franchise for all of Southwest and South Florida.

Bringing Twin Peaks to Naples has been years in the making. In July 2013, Warm Restaurants announced a multi-unit development agreement to open Twin Peaks in Naples, Fort Myers, Sarasota and Bradenton, with the first location planned for Naples as early as summer 2014. Of course, that didn’t happen.

lets face it : English is a stupid language !?

There is no egg in the eggplant, no ham in the hamburger and neither
Pine nor apple in the pineapple. English muffins were not invented in
England, French fries were not invented in France.

We sometimes take English for granted.

And my personal fav... If quizzes are quizzical, then what are tests?
