When is the last time you saw a red-checked tablecloth?

Jan at Restaurant-ing Through History has a brief, interesting look at the rise and fall of red-checkered tablecloths in restaurants. After reading, I thought about the last time I’d seen one in a diner or other eating establishment, but couldn’t think of one! I do recall bananas being used as napkins at the Red River Steakhouse in McLean, Texas, but a red-checked tablecloth? The last time we ate off one (with dinnerware, of course!) was right here at home.

Though they’re obviously out of favour at restaurants (for now), I’ll always love the good cheer and homey-ness of a red-check tablecloth. How about you?
