More on the Peanuts Gang

A few weeks ago, I had a post about the Charles M. Schulz Museum.
Across the street from the museum is the Warm Puppy Cafe where Mr. Schulz had many of his daily meals.

It has a cozy fireplace to keep you warm.

This is the interior of the cafe with an assortment of sandwiches and drinks for a quick meal.
Here's a menu if you are curious.

There is also an ice rink next to the cafe where patrons can watch skaters while they eat. Sorry, I do not have a photograph of that, but outside the rink, you can see Charlie Brown in a hockey outfit.
Mr. Schulz was an avid hockey player and held many hockey tournaments at this rink.

Next to the cafe and ice rink is a huge 2-story Snoopy gift shop.

A few miles away in downtown Santa Rosa, several Peanut characters are on display.
Yes, Mr. Schulz and the Peanuts gang made quite an impact in the area.

Makes me think of Cedar Point, they also have a Snoopy Camp



Oh how lovely! I did not know about this place, but like many I grew up on The Peanuts. I still remember Schulz writing a personal letter to a classmate back in 3rd grade or so, in response to a query about drawing. He struck me as someone who cared very much about his work, the creative process, and his readers. Wonderful to see this.

I like Charlie in his hockey outfit and I like the conductor too. It must be really nice to sit in the cafe. I've sat in the Grapes in Liverpool where the Beatles used to go and it feels amazing to be there.
