The Rabbit Hutch sign, today

The Rabbit Hutch sign, today

1. The Rabbit Hutch was a family-owned/operated gem of a restaurant, which sadly closed in the mid 1990s. An outgrowth of the Venz Family Bait and Bunny Farm in Logan, Alabama, the Rabbit Hutch house specialty was rabbit: fried, BBQed, livers, and gravy. It was also well-known for the musical entertainment, usually Mrs. Venz playing on the Genie Organ such tunes as “Side by Side,” “Has anybody seen my Gal,” and the restaurant’s theme song, “Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail.”
