Editor’s Note: This is the 436th in a series of articles recalling vanished Huntington scenes.

For more than 30 years, until his death in 1973, Hatfield Carrington “Zip” Brubeck owned and operated a busy roadside eatery and tavern on old U.S. 52 about three miles north of Wayne. Its official name was the Ravencliff Lakeside Restaurant but nobody called it that. Instead the long-time hangout for Marshall students and other young people was almost universally known as Zip’s.
