Lunch at The Hotel!
I love finding a small town that has a huge hotel. I'm not even sure how many stories I was looking up at here!
The entrance was pretty grand with terrazzo floors and a lot of royal gold accents! The stairway was mighty impressive the way it parted beneath the huge portrait. (Was that Mrs. Settles?) You can spot the letter "S" all over this hotel. If Don and I struck oil the way Mr. & Mrs. Settles did years ago, you'd be seeing a lot of Z's!!

A Round Booth
Don and I happened to stay in a hotel in Davenport, Iowa where my favorite actor actually did pass away.
As Don and I headed out, we heard a friendly voice, " You all must not be from here." Louis and his wife, Lou Anne were happy to tell us they had grown up in Big Spring. They told us a little about what their town used to be like when they were growing up, pointing to some of the pictures on the wall. They were pleased with the renovation of the old hotel and claimed it was much the way they remembered from when they were young.
Before climbing back in the car, Don and I took a trip upstairs to admire a little more of the old hotel.

The Dining Blog
This is a blog about Dining Adventures. Sometimes, I talk about food. Below, you can read how this started.
On July 4th 2011, I set a goal to try 50 culturally diverse restaurants in one year! (I knew that was possible, living in the Houston area) I spent the year pulling in friends and family to join me, on some unusual dining adventures. I met some curious people, tried some scary foods and explored places and cultures I never would have otherwise. Even though I met my goal, I learned too much to end my adventures in dining. I have continued blogging about memorable dining adventures of all kinds, near and far... and all the discoveries and funny things I've learned along the way!
Locations and types of dining adventures, are listed further down.
