The Cuban Cafes Neon tribute to itself

Some people when driving brake for various interests (they usually have a bumper sticker describing this mental process). Good people brake for animals and rainbows but I should have a bumper sticker thats says: "I brake for Rusty Neon signs". The Cuban Cafe's sign is the last of a dying peculiar rare sort of species of Americana. When I passed this sign on New Mexico's Highway 44 en route to Chaco Canyon from the Jemez Mountains I had to stop and get a cup of Joe and talk to staff. The sign was more interesting than the renewed diners interior but the staff were kind and gracious and the coffee good.
