Holbrook, Arizona. "Where's that?" seems to be the most common response to hearing the name of this city. "It's in Navajo County.". [glazed look, feigning knowledge not wanting to belie more ignorance] "You know, you pass through it on the way to the Petrified Forest if you're taking the west entrance." "Oh, ok," says the person who stopped being interested between 'Holbrook' and 'Arizona.' But, look, Holbrook has the only Popeye's Chicken in Navajo County, so take note. Ok, Holbrook. Honestly, not a place to stay the night unless you're on a long trip and this happens to be where you are at dark. But if you find yourself passing through it's not so bad and, depending on where you're coming from in city frame-of-reference, can be a refreshing experience.
