Twohey’s Restaurant is celebrating its 70-year anniversary with vintage cars, a doo-wop band, and 70-cent sundaes. The family restaurant on Atlantic Boulevard and Huntington Drive will kick off a year-long celebration with a birthday bash on May 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Owner Jim Christos, along with original owners Jean and Jerry Twohey, will be at the event to re-dedicate the Twohey's new Huntington Banquet Room and present its new catering menu, according to a press release from the restaurant.
“We are truly honored to have been a part of the community for so many years and are delighted to have the family of the original owners Jean and Jerry Twohey present for this milestone event," Christos said in the press release. "We hope to continue making memories and continue the tradition of serving quality food for future generations."
Other Twohey's events this year include 70-cent floats with the purchase of an entrée throughout the month of May, barbecue days from May 15-June 16, Rib-A-Rama from June 21-28, and Lobster Fest from Aug. 2-Sept. 16.
Twohey’s opened in 1943 and has grown from a 37-seat hamburger joint on Arroyo Boulevard in Pasadena to a 180-seat family restaurant on Atlantic, with over 300 menu items.
