Program Announcement -- Brown-Bag Lunch: Sandusky Eateries

Bring your lunch and join us in the Library Program Room as we explore a topic in local history. On Wednesday, January 19, at 12:00 noon, the topic will be Sandusky Eateries. Restaurants have been a key part of Sandusky's landscape since its very early years. Hungry residents, vacationers, and business travelers visited their favorite established eateries and tried new restaurants, too. Familiar menus and friendly staff greeted diners all around town. With the passage of time and changes in ownership, Sandusky's restaurants and their menus have evolved to suit the modern palate. Join Maggie Marconi, Museum Administrator, and Ron Davidson, Archives Librarian, as we take a look back at popular restaurants of days gone by and at what was on the menu. Registration is requested. To register, call the Library at 419-625-3834 and press 0 to speak with a switchboard operator (10-5, Monday-Friday) or press Option 6 to leave a message.

I hope Hanson's Restaurant will be included. They specialized in fresh Lake Erie fish. Their menu motto was "The fish on our menu today last night slept in Sandusky Bay."

Kewpee had great large hamburgers. Hey Ed how about Martin's next to the Ohio Theatre, and the Pelican on Columbus Ave.

Please consider having these programs at alternate times on a Saturday or weekday evening so those of us not able to come downtown for our lunch hour will be able to experience these interesting series about early Sandusky.
