He eventually opened Hoe king lo ( which had a killer looking building and sign which I found a picture of online awhile back but cannot seem to locate it now. I remember driving by the place on thrifting expeditions in my teens.)

Hoe king lo is one of the few bumatay mugs that has the name of the place on it (see ooga mooga)

Here's a cool "Then and Now" page on Chicago's WTTW site.

and one that's depressing.

As usual it's sad to see any cool signage that is gone.

Great Glowie Signage!



I think the signature above the name is "Joey Engs".
