Remember earlier this month, when I asked all you smart readers of SideDish if there were any Dallas restaurants with a long, stable history?

Dan Koller of People Newspapers gathered the data and went to work. It helped him write this sweet article about New York Subs’ owner Ken Harkness, who has owned the same sub shop in the same spot (next to SMU) for the last 40 years. Incredible.

Go wish Mr. Harkness a happy 40th anniversary this Saturday. I’m sure he’d appreciate it.
