Its such an iconic sign in San Rafael, like the old Ford Dealership clock. I can't imagine it not being there. Couldn't the Phil/Jill Lesh leave the boat but change the signage portion to light up with Terrapin Crossroads. Seems like the door charge for some of their events would make it an effortless cost for them. It been there all my life, would hate to see it gone

Iconic signs are fun and give folks lots of memories. The Litchfield's Bermuda Palms, for example, was at one point a real destination for the Hollywood elite (and later some would say a destination for prostitutes and drug dealers). Still, the Litchfield's sign still stands. http://sanrafael.patch.com/articles/history-litchfields-a-sign-of-the-past

P.S. One of the best parties I ever attended was the funeral for Whitey Litchfield. As the article that I pasted into above post attests, the old Bermuda Palms, the one that Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Duke Ellington, Janis Joplin, and others used to come to, was opened up for the afternoon. I heard a story about Janis Joplin having fired a gun into the floor "right at this spot." I talked with gangster types and former call girls, all of whom were part of the places history over the years. So yes, keep the Seafood Peddler sign. Who knows? One day we may all be telling stories about the things that transpired there (although it would be more likely if it were Phil Lesh's restaurant that we were referring to...)
