Drake's was a sandwich shop in the space that is now Bruegger's Bagels. It would have still been around the first time I came to Ann Arbor for a conference as a graduate student, but I don't remember it. Bruegger's is fine but Drake's sounds like a lot more fun.
Old menus contain a lot of implicit social history. The Drake's menu proudly lists, in separate sections, the flavors of Heinz soup and Campbell's soup they offer. Those were different days.
It's really quite easy.
