Real to Reel: The Queen Bee

07/18/06 | by Steve [mail] | Categories: Other Blogs

Mike De Sisti, a photojournalist with the Appleton Post-Crescent, has a great blog that he and his P-C colleagues use in presenting video essays and slideshows. I stumbled on this essay, featuring the inimitable Queen Bee in downtown Appleton, today.

Noor and his wife Jennie Baha have owned the Queen Bee for 14 years. Tucked away on the 200 block of E. College Avenue, the Queen Bee breakfast and lunch restaurant in downtown Appleton manages to survive among the larger chain establishments thanks to loyal customers. They come to enjoy the food, share a story or two and celebrate life.

The "celebrate life" moment refers to comments by Leota, who was eating breakfast at the Queen Bee the morning after her husband, Lee, had succumbed to Alzheimer's disease. "Lee loved the Queen Bee," she said. Poignant.
