Very reliable source sends information on Hick's Restaurant

Anon writes:
Just a bit of information about Hick's Drive-In: In "Lost Restaurants of Louisville," authors Stephen Hacker and Michelle Turner note that Daynon Hicks opened Kupie's eatery "near the corner of Fifth and Walnut Streets around 1940." They also stated Mr. Hicks married Mary, a young waitress at Kupie's, in 1947, and "Two weeks after they were married, Daynon Hicks opened Hick's Drive-In in Shiveley. " Hacker & Turner go on to say that Mr. Hicks continued to operate the Drive-In for "several years" after selling Kupie's in 1950. --Anon
