The Lucky Silver Tavern still features a fine looking marquee with neon that appears to still work. The shape of the sign as well as the way the horse head image in engrained in the middle of the marquee is different.

The Kettells Lounge in Seattle features a neon owl on top of its old mid-century marquee. Those who frequent the area in Seattle often really get a hoot out of this old sign.

Here's the sign for the Oasis Tavern, also in Tacoma. Tacoma featured a plethora of roadside tavern signs along the main drag, where sometimes it seems like there a multiple taverns along the same block.
