Happy Thanksgiving! For years and years my mom would cook a turkey, we'd have the annual Turkey Bowl at the park in Oak Forest and dozens of family members would come over to our house for food and a game of Trivial Pursuit. The winning team would get bragging rights for an entire year.
I like tradition.
My career took me away from the area for a long time. I've had plenty of Thanksgiving meals on paper plates at a desk in a newsroom. I'm not complaining. They were good experiences with some pretty great people.
But it sure was nice to have a Thanksgiving meal with my folks today.
They drove to South Bend and we ate at Tippecanoe Place... and what a place it is! I tell you what... I was expecting a good meal and a cool atmosphere, but this place went beyond my expectations. What a cool house. We ate in the "master bedroom" upstairs. The place is decked out for the holidays. I took a few shots of the outside... I wish I had more from inside!
This is from Tippecanoe Place's Website:
"Built by Clem Studebaker from 1886-1889, the Tippecanoe Place mansion has a rich and colorful history. Today, the restaurant indulges clientele in grand cuisine and noble wine - all within an atmosphere of unparalleled ambiance at the heart of the South Bend business and social scene."
