According to him, he pulled them out of the restaurant today.
Dan is referring to how you want a video of almost every fan you see.... Instead of automatically assuming that Cole is going to make a video of the fans, it would be nicer if you ask if he is planning to make a video.

a new update 1. the zephyr in laughing planet is gone, it got replaced by a five blade builder, i did not get it, 2. the low profiles in putters have been replaced by new fans ( i dont know what kind, i see them through the window) the new fans have four lights 3. mickey finns bar and seafood added two hampton bay industrials ( the restaraunt was fanless before) 4. republic cafe ( chinese food , really good) has one fan in a small dining room off the main one, the fan is a 42 inch ge vent that has a huge canopy and is flush mounted, the fan is polished brass
I got updates too lol. The place here with the Casablanca Cambridges (I posted pics in like 2009) closed recently and I'm watching the place to see what happens. No dice so far, but I'm not gonna let these slip past me like the Canarms from JCPenney's did! Dang I'm still bitter about that!

a new update, one of the red robins, (convention center) they removed the old fans, which were huntingtons, about five months ago, and for about the last few months, there were no fans, then we drove by there a couple of days ago, and i saw those modern fan co blender clones in the restaraunt

Those Modern Fan Company Industries (Blender copies) actually have stack motors in them. Looks like some Red Robins are replacing their fans with these (at least the new fans are decent quality) and we'll have to keep our eyes out for them. My local RR was built in 2008, and took the place of another restaurant that had no fans at all.
A local Arby's restaurant had 2 52" NuTone Verandah IIs in antique brass, Last week I saw that they were remodeling the entire building so this evening I went to see if I could somehow inquire about the fans. Just my luck however I arrived too late, the fans were already removed. I'm not sure if they replaced the ceiling tiles yet since there are holes where the fans were so I'm hoping they will be put back up. (doubt it) The only workers there at the time were 3 imported Masoners so I didn't even bother asking. So yeah, 2 more childhood fans gone. Yay. There is another Arbys that may have the same fans, I'm not sure if they are remodeling as well but I'd bet they will soon.

I went to another restaurant today. They had 2 white Litex-made Wal-Mart Mainstays builder fans, with pretzel brackets, 5 blades, a bowl light kit, and a rounded housing. Based on pics I've seen of the restaurant before, these fans replaced 2 HB Graytons. UPDATE: The fans were replaced by light fixtures in a remodel.

I went to yet another restaurant. They had a bunch of newer stuff:
In the bar, there were some 52" Brushed Nickel Minka Aire Supras and some Brushed Nickel HB Huntington III's without their light kits all on long down rods, most running on High, some off. They all wobbled.
In the restaurant area, where I ate, there were 4 HB Huntington III's in Brushed Nickel without their light kits on 12" down rods.

The other day I went to a Greene Turtle restaurant, which is a chain of restaurants throughout the States.
The restaurant used to be another restaurant that closed, and it used to have no fans. Throughout the restaurant, there were multiple Monte Carlo Studios in black, no light kits, on short down rods... they weren't running, and it was too dark the way they had the lighting set up to take any pictures.
There used to be a Greene Turtle not too far from me, which used to be something else, and is now yet again something else. In the bar and in most of the dining rooms they had Hunter Covent Gardens in a brass finish on really short down rods that some were running and some were not... they also had some brass finish Hunter 1886 Series fans on long down rods in the stairways (this particular Greene Turtle had two stories of dining rooms, and a rooftop deck, the Greene Turtle I just mentioned I went to the other day only has one story, like most Greene Turtles do). I can see that the Covent Gardens remain through the windows of the restaurant, but I'm not sure if the 1886 Series fans remain or not. The place then became a saloon, and then an oyster restaurant. The Covent Gardents remain, as do the 1886 Series.

So I went to my local Cracker Barrel the other night for dinner... outside the restaurant they have a bunch of (didn't count how many there were) Craftmade Porch Fans in a rust finish, most which were running on low speed, all on 12" or so down rods. At the entrance to the store and restaurant, they had a single rust-colored Craftmade Porch Fan with oak blades and a rust-colored schoolhouse light kit. It was running on either medium speed or high speed, and had a 12" down rod. Inside the actual restaurant area, there were about 6 or 8 or so bronze-colored Craftmade Porch Fans that were running on either medium speed or high speed, and were on 3" down rods. Seems all Cracker Barrels have the same exact ceiling fans...
