After an overnight in the western 'burbs of Chicago at my sister's home, we headed to our vacation destination. Since we had plenty of time to spare, we made a few stops in our hometowns ... where Mr. D and I both grew up.
First stop was in Munster, Indiana. Mr. D and the boys wanted to check out Three Floyd's Brewery. It's got the number one brew on the Brewgene App... Zombie Dust. After locking up and securing the bikes on the back of the van, we headed into the "carry out" section, decided to go into the pub, then were told there is a 40 minute wait for a table. We didn't wait. Unfortunately, they didn't have any Zombie Dust. Turns out, it sells out the day it goes on sale. Monday. The boys settled for other flavors.
By the time we finished at Three Floyds it was <past> lunch time. Mr. D and I chose Schoop's Hamburgers for our lunch stop. The kids seemed to like the food. And our stories. And plugging the table juke box with quarters to play some favorite tunes.
|I can remember sitting at this very booth as a kid!)|
Like the Dairy Queen. Mr. D's first job location. Also first date spot for Mr. D and I.
Across from the DQ .... the Kennedy Theatre. Movies. Lots of stories shared about this place. Mr. D and I saw Jaws here ... first date.... then walked across street to DQ.
More stops and stories coming up....
