Name that flyover city – 8-20-19

Ok, let’s get this done!

Thanks for playing “Name That Flyover City”!

As a reminder, here’s a quick review of today’s bewildering questions:

  1. The very first Wendy’s restaurant opened in this city in 1969.

  2. This city has one of the nation’s largest concentrations of Art Deco architecture.

  3. One of Ronald Reagan’s first jobs in the entertainment industry was calling baseball games for WHO radio in this city.

Your answers:

  1. Columbus, OH – Dave Thomas opened his first Wendy’s in 1969 and named the chain in honor of his daughter (but we forgot her name)
  2. Tulsa, OK – Oil drove Tulsa’s economy during the ’30s. And, while the rest of the nation was digging out of the depression, Tulsa was digging foundations and constructing buildings representing virtually every type of Art Deco style.
  3. Des Moines, IA – Also during the ’30s while Tulsa was enjoying a building boom, former US president Ronald Reagan was delighting baseball fans on the radio in Des Moines announcing Chicago Cubs games.

Thanks again for playing AND for reading Flyover Future!
