Ann Arbor History: Drake's

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.
