|This is a mega rare item that I picked up at an estate sale in Oakland. I couldn't resist! This chain went out of business in the late '80's or early '90's and were based in the San Francisco Bay Area. There were two in Hayward. One was on Hesperian at Lewelling and the other was in downtown Hayward but I don't remember the exact location. Each restaurant had a sign with a giant dachshund head wearing the chef's hat as pictured in the logo art. You can see one of these heads at Streetlight Records located on Bascom Avenue in San Jose .|

Here is a nice vintage, fashion newsreel featuring model Joan Kemp called: Fashions that Follow the Sun from 1961. This film features Joan and several other ladies modeling the latest in swimsuits, swim hats and lounge wear from the lounge era. Great stuff from Joan's personal collection.
Here is the second Budweiser TV spot featuring the late model Joan Kemp. She made several commercials for Budweiser, Vaseline, Max Factor and Salem Cigarettes to name a few.
