This was incredible to discover - a homemade memorial for the late George Diskes, owner of The Dinner Bell Diner on Bank Street in Painesville, Ohio. Though closed for several years, this icon of local culture remains a spot of interest to tourists and local residents. 'Famous George' served many satisfied patrons here - from Zsa Zsa Gabor to Elton John to Governor Voinovich to radio celebrity Mike Trivisonno to... everyday folks from around the corner. A trip to the Dinner Bell not only guaranteed fantastic dining, but also gifted visitors with a tour through collections of Coca Cola merchandise, copper cookware from Old Europe, a set of New York City taxicab doors, a stuffed horse, Three Stooges collectibles, Greek treasures, and other unusual trinkets. This was a happy place, in every sense of the word.
