Holy Toledo!!

I was visiting Tony Packo’s Cafe in Toledo, Ohio recently. You may be familiar with them from MASH, where Cpl. Klinger used to mention them. Once of the things they are known for, besides good hot dogs and good chili, is the tradition of celebrities signing hot dog buns, which are then preserved and mounted on the walls of the restaurant. Well, guess whose signed bun I happened to see there?

I didn't know she had visited Tony Packo's! Must have been in the late 80's

That’s right: Tracey has been immortalized at Tony Packo’s! The bun was not dated, but I think she signed it in 1988 or 1989 during a promotional visit to Toledo (and Detroit, too) to promote TTUS, which was in the middle of its run on Fox.
