I don't usually waymark fast food joints - I prefer more one-of-a-kind things. However, this Arby's has a few memories associated with it, so I had to. This is one of the older Arby's with a rounded roof, only a single row of indoor tables (but a large patio with umbrella tables), cow tiles on the floor, and a giant neon hat sign. It has no drive-through. I remember going to this Arby's with my parents when I was very small, after Christmas shopping at Huntington Center across the street, and I'm 50 now.
This location is (in)famous for the YouTube video of Lipstick Bail Bonds employees using excessive force, tasers and pepperspray to (not) capture a bond fugitive. You may have seen it on World's Dumbest or Tosh.0 shows. Not gonna link to it, you can search for it easily enough.
After listening to the Welcome to Night Vale podcast,
, I cannot imagine the giant neon sign without thinking of...Lights, seen in the sky above the Arby’s. Not the glowing sign of Arby’s, something higher and beyond that. We know the difference. We’ve caught onto their game. We understand the “lights above Arby’s” game - invaders from another world. Ladies and gentlemen: the future is here, and it’s about a hundred feet above the Arby’s.
