If you know of additional places that have matchbooks with their names on them, whether from your travels or from the area where you live, please send us an e-mail (at email@example.com) with their names and addresses.

Planning a trip? We will be glad to help match the cities and towns listed with your itinerary. We might also be able to tell you what restaurants and hotels have had matchbooks with their names in the recent past (but not recent enough information to include them on this site).
Please visit us regularly. This Web site will change often as we travel and as you and others send us information about restaurants, hotels, casinos, etc., with matchbooks with their names on them. If an establishement no longer has matches, let us know -- and, similarly, if a place still has matches with its name, let us know that , too.
