Oldest Bob's Big Boy Celebrates 60th by Going Green

Bob's Big Boy in Burbank, CA (C) essential-architecture.com
The historic Bob's Big Boy restaurant in Burbank, CA is turning 60 years old and in celebration the owners announced they will be kicking off a "Sixty and Solar" campaign. The restaurant, which started in 1949, is getting a 'green' upgrade. With a new 26 kW Canadian Solar photovoltaic panel system installed by HelioPower, Bob's is now able to generate a portion of its own electricity. Patrons of Bob's Big Boy are encouraged to go down to the Burbank restaurant this weekend to celebrate and register their restaurant memories for a filming.
Bob's has always been a favorite restaurant of mine. The fact that The Beatles, James Dean, and Bob Hope have eaten here, among many other famous patrons, is interesting enough for me to stop in once in a while. And the best time to go - Friday evenings for the Classic Car Night.
Filming is taking place Friday, July 17 from 5pm to 9pm and Saturday, July 18 from 10am to 5pm. For more info on the celebration check out this website: http://www.sixtyandsolar.com/

Sorry I missed the filming. Will have to head there for lunch -- maybe a green salad to celebrate!
Best,
Marty

Hahaha, yes Marty - GREEN salad to celebrate I think would be very appropriate :) Although, I can't help myself from ordering an Original Bob's Big Boy burger and a milk shake.

Bring back the "Brawy Beef combo".

Kudos to Bob's Big Boy for going green! Next time we're in the neighborhood, that's where we are stopping for lunch! I love the businesses that actually put forth the effort to be friendly to our earth!

This is the kind of old time place I love to visit. To think of enjoying your delicious food and look over and see Bob Hope a few tables away. Cool!!! Thanks for sharing.
