Earl’s Dining and Catering in Brook, Indiana is yummy beyond words!

As you might remember, little Indiana and her husband, Jeremy, enjoyed a nice, quiet, child-free evening (the first date night in years) at this Newton County restaurant. Our food was incredible, from appetizer to dessert! But there’s something else that’s kind of fun about Earl’s Dining and Catering.

What I left out in my previous post about Earl’s Dining and Catering were the walls. If you look closely in one of the images below, you can actually see dollar bills sticking out of the awesome exposed brick walls inside the Brook, Indiana restaurant. Huh?

Apparently, a customer at one time decided to put a dollar in a hole in the wall and other patrons followed suit. little Indiana had to join in, of course. You can look for our dollar — my husband wrote “little Indiana” on it in black permanent marker.

    We did look around the outside of Hazelden. It wasn’t open that day. 😉

    When in Brook or the neighborhood one should eyeball Hazelden, George Ade’s estate. He once entertained presidents and many famous folks there. Wish it were open on a scheduled basis.

    And, if you don;t know who George Ade was, think Ross-Ade Stadium and google him. All Hoosiers should know a little about him or at least his many quotes. He also frequently appears in crosswords. In his time he was a Mark Twain or Mike Royko figure.

    Here are a few of his quotes I filched from one of the many websites which quote him:

    Whom are you?’ he asked, for he had been to night school.

    For parlour use, the vague generality is a lifesaver.

    He had been kicked in the head by a mule when young, and believed everything he read in the Sunday papers.

    Yup! They still have the old sign up in the family area. 🙂 Sounds like a sandwich I need to try!
