I first became aware two years ago that people refer to the Spur convenience store at the foot of the Blatnik Bridge in Superior as the “Chicken Spur.”
I found that out in the comments of a somewhat-related PDD post: “I’m old and I don’t understand anything, part one.”
The reason, of course, this Spur is called the “Chicken Spur” is it includes “Frank’s Fast n’ Fresh Deli,” which sells chicken, among other fried goodies shown in the photo above.
Anyway, I’m bringing all this up to point out that I’ve finally seen the words in print. The Spring 2010 issue of Stinger, the magazine of the University of Wisconsin-Superior, features an ad for the bar High Five’s on Fifth, which notes its location as “at the foot of the High Bridge in Superior behind Chicken Spur.”
Photos on this post are from Feb. 1, 2007. Some of the same corn dogs shown might still be sitting in the tray. (Rimshot, and thank you.)
