“Retro-style diner”

Located inside the museum of Play. In the spring of 1938 a young family man, working at Eastman Kodak Company for 17 cents an hour, decided he needed to supplement his income in order to support his family. He accomplished this by working weekends selling hot dogs and soda pop out of a small road side stand near his home in Webster, NY. That young man's name was Bill Gray. Bill and his wife Alberta worked as many as eighteen hours per day on the weekends to maintain their fledgling business. Four years later, making more money on the weekends than he did at his full time job at Kodak, Bill decided to go into the restaurant business full time. This is the story of how the Bill Gray's Restaurants got its start.

There is also a Bill Gray's on Culver Rd. down by the lake. Same food...used to go their with my parents as a kid, now with my own children and grandchildren. Nothing better than a burger from Bill Gray's.

Very disappointing. Looked for it for an hour before we realized it is physically INSIDE the museum of play. Just say that in your notes and directions.
