Sonic Boom: Our Greater Bay Area Now has Five (5) SONIC DRIVE-INs – Photo As Seen in Cow Town – Is Oak Town Next?Friday, January 13th, 2017
I’ve never had the Sonic myself – I’m too old/fat for that. But you young-uns have at it.
As seen in Vaca (cow) ville (town), which still has cows, but was named after Manuel Cabeza Vaca, of course.
