SHOUT OUT: The Fairview Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a special “A Night Down Memory Lane” — featuring songs, stories and the legendary Yankee Tower meatloaf — to reunite past and president Fairview residents, business owners and anyone with ties to the community.
Old-time photos and other memorabilia will be shared and moments recalled during the event, set for Saturday, Oct. 19, from 6:30-9:30 p.m., at the Greek Orthodox Church on Anderson Avenue.
Many attendees will no doubt remember the Yankee Tower. The white-brick, 82-seat landmark — at the foot of Fairview Avenue off Broad — closed in 2001, ending an era that lasted exactly 50 years and 93 days.
Still, the memories created by the Cangilosi family and the equal-opportunity wise-cracking waitresses remained — as has the much-sought-after recipe for the diner’s signature meatloaf (It’s the cheese inside that does the trick).
Also being served at the event: roast beef, meatballs, french fries and desert.
Tickets must be pre-purchased only .
