Elizabeth Taylor – a Town Topic Chili Fan?

elizabeth-taylor-jfk air 1969The answer to yesterday’s Town Topic Trivia question is – true! Elizabeth Taylor was a fan of Town Topic chili! The story was told to us by Town Topic customer Cal, whose uncle was a top employee at TWA in Kansas City. Cal’s uncle liked telling interesting airport stories, including this one: In 1969 Liz Taylor had someone from Avis Rental Car drive to Town Topic to pick up chili for her, and bring it to her private jet at Kansas City Municipal Airport. Here’s a picture of Liz with Richard Burton at JFK Airport in 1969. Wonder if they were on their way to KC for some TT chili?!
