That wasn't hydrogen. It was liquified natural gas and it was back in '96.
Although they had hopes of public use it pretty much only was used for Peoples Gas's fleet of CNG powered vehicles.
It didn't last long.
I do miss the beans from Dixie Que though.
It was a Mel Markon restaurant that had just run its course. It closed in 95.
A trib article says
Markon says he's helping a friend develop new food products, but notes:
"Mostly, I've been working out and expanding my social horizons."
Of Dixie Que, he sighs: "It had a steady following, but the performance was getting a little marginal. We were faced with either expanding or closing. It was decided to close."
