-Here's a thought: does the new roadhouse make ANY sense whatsoever in the context of Twin Peaks? It's in a small mountain town, packed with young people, AND national acts. Dream logic obviously factors in a bit, but maybe it factors in A LOT here.
For a town of 51,000 people it absolutely makes sense. The combined population of the 'Real' Twin Peaks, Snoqualmie and North Bend, WA, is around 22-23k people. There's a bunch of bars showcasing live music. Not nightly, but still...
For the fictional LOCATION of Twin Peaks, out in the boonies 2 hours from Spokane? Eh, not so much. The closest Real town to the fictional location is Metaline Falls, WA, with a bustling population of around 413 (that's including the nearby town of Metaline).
Lynch and Frost have repeatedly mentioned the sign as an error, forced by ABC who thought a town of 5100 people would be too small to get viewers attention. They reference this mistake with a brief joke/refer in the gazette in TSHoTP
