Vintage Aurelio's Ad - Scottsdale Opening in 1974
In the vestibule of the Aurelio's in LaGrange are a series of vintage newspaper advertisements including this one you see above. It is announcing the opening of a new restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. But, it is from 1974. Who knew!?! They had expanded beyond the southside of Chicago by the mid-1970's? From the copy in the ad, it appears that Joe Aurelio, himself, had relocated to Scottsdale.
Joe Aurelio formerly of Homewood Illinois cordially invites you to an evening of friendly family atmosphere and delicious foods. For that extra special touch and Free Gift to the ladies say --- "Joe sent me."That's the move, right? Have a Chicago eats place, retire. Move to Arizona or Florida. Open up another place where there are other Chicago snowbirds.
