    I bet the guy just made a giant quarter, took it downtown and took some photos.

       Damn, I was hoping to make that comment, though I was really just wondering how long it took him to make that quarter.

    I know it’s not vintage for the client’s memories, but I kind of miss the sign for where Meg Ryan sat (will sit?  Time travel will have massive ramifications on language…). But he needs to get massive props just for the wall portraits alone.

    That’s freakishly detailed, capturing the run-down glory of the place. An amazing project. I’m sure there are little bottles of Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray Soda.

    RE Get Ticket Here, Katz’s has a strange ordering system. You get a little blue punchcard as you enter. It has various dollar and cent denominations. When you order, you hand the ticket to the guy at the counter, who punches the total. You give that to the clerk and pay as you exit.

    Not gonna be accurate unless there are miniature pushing and shoving customers being waited on by tiny little rude employees.
    I would eat something off the street before going in there again.  It’s like trying to have lunch in the middle of a soccer riot.

    *Swoon* It’s miniature. It’s hyper-detailed.

    For a guy who’s been in love with the Thorne Rooms his whole life, this is awesome!

    My favorite part is the worn-through sign printed on the linoleum floor at the entrance. That brings me back…
