Well, I couldn't find a matchbook from The Cart, but I did find this vintage photo of the bar inside the restaurant (from John Chuckman's great website of Chicago imagery).
Situated at Harrison and Wabash, The Cart was just down the street from another long time Chicago institution that fascinated me in my youth, the Universal Bowling Store, with its glittering array of polished bowling balls displayed on metal "trees" that made the windows of the store look like some multi-colored seasonal celebration from The Jetsons.
Chuckman's site also offered up this image of another Chicago "theme" restaurant, this one far from the wood paneled walls and old world flavor of The Cart.
I never ate at the Sky-Hi nor do I have any memory of it. It was located on the far West side near Cicero. Our family's most frequented restaurant for many years was Hoe Kow; part of a weekly Sunday night ritual of Jewish families out on the town eating Chinese Food.
I could only find this old matchbook but it does bring back lots of memories of my grandmother and egg rolls and charcoal barbequed meats and fortune cookies and getting dressed up for dinner so we could see and be seen by other aspitational middle-class Jewish families.
If Old Chicago was a Monopoly board, Hoe Kow Restaurant might be my Baltic Avenue, a bit low rent, but with all of the memories associated with it, one of my most coveted properties!
