Check out this bright sign for Pring's Sea Food, and
its happy cow.
UPDATE 04/05 : The Pring's restaurant
in San Leandro is still in business as far as I know. The restaurant has
good home cooking, and sweet, or ornery classic "Flo" type waitresses.
The pies and pastries are to die for! The place is like walking right
into to 50's or 60's. Many thanks to John from Carson City
for update. 04-05
UPDATE 09/06 : The building is still there and possibly the sign, but it is now an Italian Restaurant. The old Pring's is no more. Many thanks to Christine Safieddine
for update. 09-06
