This month's I Spy is ... Blimpy Burger," writes Duane Keahl. "My waistline can vouch for it!!" "I've been distraught by the thought," writes Mary Shindell, "of losing this landmark with the best burgers in town."
Blimpy Burger "has been serving ... students and locals since 1953," writes Louisa Griffes, who explains that the university's purchase of the building will force Blimpy's to relocate by the end of the summer. It's "Rich Magner's Snow Bear @ Blimpy's," writes Arlene Mulcare. Hence the clue, "soon to hibernate or relocate." "I sure hope they find a new place where they can do the bears again," writes Marija Freeland.
"Let's hope his hibernation is not too long!" writes Bruce Conforth. "I vote for a relocate," writes Rachel Newman. "Close to campus!" exclaims Ivana Mrazova. It's "doubtful that they will be able to find another location that will give them the same ambience (rudeness?!)," writes Robert Koernke. "Where else can you get your food cooked by guys who yell at you as if they were your own teenage sons?!" asks Judi Taylor.
A record ninety-three people correctly identified the Blimpy bears. Our winner, drawn at random, is David Shoup, who will enjoy his $25 gift certificate at Shalimar.
