Is this the most photographed sign in Madison?

Is This the Most Photographed Sign in Madison?
Probably. Especially if you have a camera with you when you come out at twilight feeling mellow after a couple blackened tilapia tacos and an ice-cold frozen margarita. The sign glows against the darkening sky in all its splendid neon glory. It's almost psychedelic. It feels as if you looked long and hard enough, you might discover the meaning of life. Since it doesn't reveal itself immediately, you take a picture and hope revelation will strike later. Tex Tubb's Taco Palace on Atwood Avenue .

I miss the Wil-Kil sign. That was art.

If I carried a camera with me, I would have photographed this week's Westgate marquee multiple times by now.

It looks like the Dubble Bubble logo. That's why it strikes such a resonant chord deep within the boomer heart.

Wow, sure looks like Atwood Ave. has changed since I lived near there many moons ago (1982). Whereabouts is this obviously upscale place for the neighborhood? Back in the day the bars opened at 7:00 a.m. and barely closed. I always wanted to venture into the 13th Inning, but never dared. It looked too much like the Twilight Zone, and they left their door open no matter what season, lol.

Agreed Dr. Bubbles, it sure does look like the gum logo!
