The Grill Restaurant sign once at 100 E. Congress comes to Ignite Museum. It was a downtown restaurant that opened in the 1940's and closed in 2011. Previous restaurants at that location included, the Stag Grill and Minerva Café. The sign once restored, will again sport neon and light bulbs. Would you believe the sign was found at a bordello in Calexico? Stay tuned for updates.
This Denny's Dinner sign is a recent acquisition of the Museum. A base was built, followed by a cleaning, re-wiring with the addition of a new transformer. Then the neon was bent and installed. Totally awesome sign!
