Life with Archie #1 (September 2010)

 

Companies & Brands

 

Ambrose’s Chowhouse – A diner in New York City.  Owned by “Little” Ambrose.  Only seen in the Earth-Betty alternate future, and as Ambrose is too young to be buying restaurants in the mainstream universe, it does not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories. 

 

Chez Chic – A restaurant in Los Angeles. Cheryl Blossom works there as a waitress.  Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Club Foote – A nightclub in New York City.  Archie has played there.  Only seen in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories. 

 

Club Sandwich – A nightclub in New York City.  Archie has played there.  Only seen in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories. 

 

Dunka-Muffin – A nationwide breakfast pastry and coffee chain.  Lodge Industries opened one next door to Pop’s in an attempt to force Pop to sell his business to them (but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Lodge owns the entire chain).  Based on Dunkin’ Donuts.  Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Elite Country Club of Riverdale – A country club (with a golf course) in Riverdale. Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Jimmy’s Rocketship – A nationwide hamburger chain.  Lodge Industries opened one next door to Pop’s in an attempt to force Pop to sell his business to them (but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Lodge owns the entire chain).  Based on Johnny Rockets.  Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Lodge World Inc. – A division of Lodge Industries.  Only the name is seen, so it is not known what it does.  Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Mighty Comics – A comic book shop in Riverdale.  Owned by Chuck and Nancy (but they bought it, so it existed before them).  The name comes from the brand that ArchieCo used for their super-hero comics in the 1960s. Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Milberg Brothers Talent Agency – A talent agency in New York City.  They represent Archie.  Only seen in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so the agency may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories. 

 

Mirth of a Nation – An investment banking firm. The firm is partnered with Lodge Industries in the plan to buy up and remake large parts of Riverdale.  Owned by Ethel’s fiancé Fred Mirth.  The name is a reference to the Archie Comics tagline from the 1940’s. Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Sack’s 6th Avenue – A department store in New York City.  Betty works there as a junior executive.  Based on Saks Fifth Avenue.  Only seen in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.  (Even as I type that, I’m pretty sure it has appeared in a mainstream story.  But since I can’t point to one right now, the entry stands as written.)

 

Sam’s Spam Stand – A cheap restaurant (or maybe just a food cart) in New York City.  Just mentioned, not seen.  Only mentioned in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories. 

 

Up & Down Burgers – A restaurant in Seaside Heights, New Jersey that sometimes has live music.  Archie has played there.  The name is a reference to In-N-Out Burger.  Only seen in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories. 

 

Wisdom of Solomon Ashram and Spa, The – A yoga center and spa in Riverdale.  Moose’s girlfriend Ilana works there as a yoga instructor.  Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Entertainments and Fictional Characters

 

Click on Alexis – A daily local news TV show in New York City.  Hosted by Archie and Betty’s neighbor, Alexis Click.  Only seen in the Earth-Veronica alternate future, so it may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories (given Alexis’s age, it almost certainly doesn’t exist yet, but you never know).

 

Mr. Justice – A movie based on old Archie Comics super-hero Mr. Justice.  Produced by Archie and Betty’s neighbor Amy Lears and her partner Shira. Seen (as a work-in-progress) in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so it definitely does not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.

 

Celebrities

 

Karaoke Kings, The – A rock band playing at Up & Down Burgers.  Just mentioned, not seen.  Only mentioned in the Earth-Betty alternate future, so the band may not exist yet in mainstream Archie stories.
