Wake up little Susie by the Everly Brothers was a Billboard Best Seller in its fourth week playing on October 14, 1957 and was #2 in the Billboard Top 100.

Circa ’57, a highly anticipated restaurant at the southwest corner of Vail Avenue and Campbell Street opened today, Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 101 W. Campbell Street. The restaurant has ambient features in different sections. The room to the west is reminiscent of the interior of a classic 50’s-built home or bungalow house — complete with aluminum siding and shingle roof at the exterior of the “entrance” and a kitchen, fireplace, console stereo and more on the inside. for example, will offer specialties from mom’s home cooking and dad’s backyard grill. Food to match the ambience will include a menu of Mom’s home cooking and Dad’s backyard grill.

There’s also a classic diner and soda fountain area. In the corner, center location of the former Grand Station restaurant, is the soda fountain — complete with glowing glass block under the counter and the chrome accents of a 50’s style soda fountain establishment. To the south of the Soda Fountain is a diner with dark, rich hardwood floors. Another section, to be completed at a later date, will feature an automotive/drive-in scene complete with a 1957 Chevrolet and other cars from the era.

Staff and beta testers have been seen at the restaurant the past few weeks, and the dark hardwood floor was just finished about mid-September.

The opening of Circa ’57 adds to one of the top highlights of Arlington Heights — an appealing downtown group of restaurants that offer great eating experiences and great smells, especially along Vail Avenue and Campbell Street.
