Twohey's 70-Cent Sundaes and More Anniversary Specials This Month

Twohey's, pronounced "twoees," the Alhambra restaurant known for hot fudge sundaes, Little Stinko Burgers topped with onions and pickles, and golden onion rings and fries, celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. A blowout celebration kicks off this month, with 70-cent ice cream floats through the month of May (with the purchase of an entree) and a big bash on May 15 with 70-cent sundaes all day, plus vintage cars, a doo-wop band, '50s-style dancers, carhops serving and a new gallery of historic photos of the Rose Parade and area.

The burger palace wasn't always a 180-seat restaurant. The first location, a 37-seat soda fountain, opened on Pasadena's Arroyo Parkway in 1943. It moved to its current location about 10 years later and became known for the drive-up carhop service that lasted until the 1970s. Unfortunately all of that was wiped out with a remodel, and now it's a big ol' diner that may have lost its original charm but still has pretty good sundaes. The May 15 celebration takes place from 10 AM to 3 PM, and more specials will be offered all summer long.
