Thread Name: Andy Griffith Show & Dillards
Subject: RE: Andy Griffith Show
To each his/her own. I love Seinfeld. But then I grew up in the neighborhood where the characters live and spent mant a college night at the Diner where they hang out.

Interestingly for folk/pop fans, this diner is called "Monk's" in the show, but is actually called Tom's (they always show the exterior so that "Tom's" is off screen to the left, and the only visible word is "Restaurant.") It is the same "Tom's Diner" about which Suzanne Vega wrote the song "Tom's Diner." We went to the same University, and she also used to hang out there, but about 5 years before me...
