Early 1950s Little Tavern ads

For decades, Little Tavern was THE post-bar late night hangout in College Park, MD. It opened in 1937 on Rt. 1 across from the University of Maryland and was tragically knocked down by the school in 2015 despite efforts to save it. For decades it was a popular college hangout, an important part of off-campus life.  Now the site is home to a couple picnic tables and bike racks.

These ads ran for the College Park Little Tavern in the early 1950s, the left one featuring the questionable spokesman “Misogynist Sam”. Will buying the little steamed, onion studded burgers at the Club LT get you no women or all the women?
