I drove past the Hillbilly Haven
at one time, which was on Route 1
. I thought the name was so hysterically funny that I took a photo of it. I'm not sure if it ever got developed. Adjacent Woodbridge VA was very redneck

married Donna Dixon
, I think the newspapers mentioned her father owning that "night club." I just thought "small world" at the time. I didn't know Dixon was a beauty queen until I just Googled her today. That kind of explains how she got her foot in Hollywood's door. She co-starred with a young Tom Hanks
in a sit-com in 1980-82 called Bosom Buddies
, which may still appear in re-runs on cable TV. It was a weak TV version of 1959's Some Like It Hot
, which starred Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis
. In the tv version, Two and a Half Men
's Holland Taylor
was the ad agency boss of both Hanks
and Peter Scolari
