johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

My Photo
Name:
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

polock johnny's dollars



so we got to the polock johnny's on washington blvd in southwest baltimore. i instantly dug the juxtapostion of liquor store and giant sausage man.




sadly the neon sign outside wasn't all lit up yet, but it still was a pretty straightforward, solid sign. for a business (i'm not sure about this location) established in 1921, the sign is pooty troo to its roots.




but a pretty vintage lookin' sign inside was! i risked a hairy eyeball from the hon at the counter and snapped a photo.




mmm... i got the big polish sausage with the works and onion rings. brought it home and popped a natty boh. life is good... btw that's some dam tasty tube steak, i recommend you go get yourself one.
