Developer J Dapper loves Googie, the playful architectural style that distinguished nearly every coffee shop and bowling alley built between 1940 and 1966. And when he purchased Huntridge Center—a mid-century shopping plaza best known for its vintage pharmacy, Hi Rollers Barber Shop and Huntridge Tavern—he gave the plaza what it needed: a Googie-styled, YESCO-built neon sign, which will get lit up during a big parking lot party September 15 at 7:30 p.m. “I want to give Huntridge Center more identity than it’s had in the past,” Dapper says. Other property improvements—including new landscaping, windows and sidewalks—will be added soon, as will two new dining spots: Wingstop and a new lunch counter for the relocated pharmacy run by Cory Harwell (Carson Kitchen). All that’s missing now is a bowling alley.
