SPARR HEIGHTS ? The Bob's Brigade gathered in force at Sparr Heights Community Center Aug. 31 to exchange memories about one of Glendale's greatest contributions to the world of family dining. An incidental reference to McDonald's from one audience member was greeted with proper disregard by the loyal; Bob's remains in another category entirely for those who remember the Big Boy from its days of glory. Leading the memory parade was Bruce Herman, vice president of the Glendale Historical Society, co-sponsor of the program with the Historical Society of Crescenta Valley.

Bob?s Big Boy is considering a move back to the city where it all began. City officials have contacted the now-Michigan-based restaurant chain about a possible new location in Glendale, where founder Bob Wian opened the original Bob?s Big Boy on Colorado Street in 1937. Glendale has since lost its assortment of Bob?s Big Boy locations, with the final restaurant at 1407 W. Glenoaks Blvd. closing in March after store owners failed to renew a franchise agreement with the company.
