This hole-in-the-wall building is recognizable by the Polar Bears out front, that look quite similar to the ones that used to be outside the old Fairview Drive In that used to be just up in the road in Memphis. Happy Daze has hamburgers, French fries and cold treats that will satisfy anyone’s warm-weather appetite.
