Gerald Bekken Remembers

“I worked there one summer after I got out of the Army, making
root beer floats, hot dogs and serving up ice cream,” said Gerald
Bekken, now 86. “We would get double lines of cars parked all
around the Barrel to buy mugs of root beer and hot dogs. There
was a carhop outside who took the orders, and I worked inside to
fill them. There wasn't a lot of room in the Barrel, just enough for
one or two people to work.”
