Luna Cafe Sign Restoration Begins

After many years of waiting, and frustration, and anticipation... it finally happened today! The Luna Cafe neon sign was taken down, and moved to a sign restoration shop in St. Charles, MO where the long-awaited restoration will begin immediately, and will take an expected 6 to 8 weeks.

The relighting ceremony and celebration event is estimated to be mid-October, but the exact date is not yet finalized - although we do know that the owner is planning to throw a big party.... You won't want to miss this one!

Here are photos of the sign as it begins the restoration process:
