Next stop.

REXY'S



I must say, we have had a lot of rain the past several months.

We even had a tropical storm already.
So riding is spotty.

Now, in July, it is too hot to ride !

Nah, never too hot to ride is it?

Anyway, back to Rexy's.



Named after the original owner, well, his nickname from WWI anyway,
this place opened in 1943 by a family who came to South Jersey from
South Philadelphia (South Philly as it is called around here).

The opposite side of the building.







I took this picture as we approached from the other side of the Black Horse Pike.





Rexy's played a big part in the Philadelphia Flyers history.
The Flyers were founded in 1967 as an expansion team and they came to Roxy's for meals and a place to get away.

The team came here after their 1974 Stanley Cup Finals win !

Some great history. Read more here.

Rexy's Restaurant & Bar website, which does not seem to be working properly.
