The Prime Burger, one of my favorite places in the city, is sadly closing on Saturday. They’ve been in business since 1938. I’ve enjoyed their hand-painted signs, camouflaged faux bois clock, nice people, and bacon-related foods since 1986.
The rest of the Palm Beach photos have all been added to the main site.
Also, my friend Hayley Morris‘s amazing stop-motion video for Hilary Hahn & Hauschka’s new song Bounce Bounce just premiered on IFC. Watch it below and check out the behind the scenes look at how the video was made HERE.
More type from Palm Beach, Florida coming soon. These hand painted murals and signs were along Broadway in West Palm.
