This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."

Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

How about Superman ice cream? I was shocked when I found out it's not a national flavor!

The last (open) Ponderosa I remember seeing was when I lived in western NY state southwest of Buffalo. The Ponderosa just outside of Jamestown closed its doors about 4 years ago. I kind of liked them as a kid -- especially the huge salad (and other food) bar.



Ponderosa isn't dead! I am in Delta Skymiles Dining and I get frequent e-mail reminders from them that the Ponderosa in Uniontown, PA (about half an hour from Morgantown) is a participant. The only program participant here in Morgantown is the local IHOP ...

There's also a Ponderosa in Washington, PA, off the I-70/I-79 multiplex, in a shopping area with a whole bunch of other restaurants ....

Correction to this post .... I got an e-mail just now from Dividend Miles Dining (which is run by the same company as the Delta Skymiles Dining program, but earns miles for US Airways). The Ponderosa in the program is in Belle Vernon, PA, which is further north.

I know the one in Uniontown used to be a participant. I don't know if it closed or if it just dropped out of the rewards program.

highfive I remember having Superman ice cream Superman on trips up north of Port Huron when I was a kid! There was an ice cream parlor near the cottage by the lake where we stayed.

In fact, I can tell you that one of the years we went up there was 1984, because I remember one day we had a newspaper with coverage of the Olympics.

Pittsburgh still has Spaghetti Warehouse.



There sometimes were reasons other than shopping why we went to certain stores, Mary. I understand completely. I remember going to a certain SuperX drug store for just such a reason.

Spaghetti Warehouse is still around, huh?

--hide--
It's been years since I've been to Spaghetti Warehouse. Only knew they still existed because I've seen coupons.

As for Peaches, I was so young when closed their doors. Don't think they existed here too long, but I could be wrong.
