If you’ve lived in (or visited) Kenosha, you probably know this place!
My first job was at The Spot Drive-In.
I started working there when I was 15 years old, and worked there all through college, paying my way through school.
I first started working inside, at the cash register and making ice cream.
And then I worked outside as a waitress.
The Spot is cool, because there’s no inside dining… cars pull up, and you go out and put a tray on their window.
They make homemade root beer that comes in frosted glass mugs.
I have really fond memories of working there. It was a lot of fun!
