    Marcus Dairy Finally Closing

    They've been talking about it for years. What with malls and retail growing up around them. They are closing for good this Sunday at the end of the business day.
    I'll go down there for one last breakfast. If the weather is decent, I may even take the Spyder.

    Here's an article about the place.

    Here is the sad news.

    That is a sad day. I worked there delivering milk in a class II truck. Delivered as far west into New York. Don't ask me how long ago that was... I don't think even I can remember that far back

    Remember it being a land mark in Danbury, but that was before all the malls took over...

    You could still go on the odd non-Super Sunday (which I preferred) and see a great assortment of bikes and riders. Everything from ST's right through to RSV4's.......and everything in between. I have great memories of riding down RT 7 and seeing frost covered meadows on our way..........great times and a lot of laughs (like watching my friend shaking so bad from the cold that he spilled his coffee all over himself).
    The local police were pretty over zealous the last "Super Sunday" we attended........like they expected Marlon Brando to ride into town.....
