Signs of the Times: Hot 'n Tot

Hot 'n Tot is the perfect example of not judging a book by it's beautiful, glowing sign.  That's the saying, right?  Hot 'n Tot has been around since 1946.  Certainly, the cool, atomic bow-tie, light box, and neon diamond sign is a little bit newer, but we liked it so much that we were ready to give the coffee shop the wacky tacky seal of approval without even trying the food.  On one of our adventures, we just happened upon this Lomita, CA landmark; the sign, coupled with the fact that we were feeling a bit peckish, lured us in for some dinner.  In retrospect, as passersby, we think that maybe we should have snapped a photo of the sign and continued passing on by.  The food isn't awful, but it is also nothing to write home (or even a blog) about; that is why this is a "signs of the times" and not a "chow time" entry.  Anyhow, we give major credit to any eatery that can weather the ever-changing culinary constitutions of Southern California eaters all the while maintaining a dreamy sign.

We just started a new Facebook page to accompany our little ol' blog.  Consider this an engraved invitation to join wacky tacky on Facebook!
