I think just about everything in Pigeon Forge is along Rt. 441. At the 3 Bears General Store I hit a trifecta. A Big Bear (Animals), a Big Santa (Seasonal) and here a Big Hot Dog (Food & Drink). Lots of places with multiple subjects generally stay within the same genre. The 3 Bears General Store also offers a wide range of offerings. Stop in and see what I mean.
Spotted this Big Coney Island on A1A in Indialantic, Florida on our way to the condo we rented for a few days following Ernie and Sally’s wedding in Orlando. We went back to get the photo and since we like a sale we picked up 4 of the Coney’s. Wanted to see if they were actually “Udderly Delicious” – not bad, but not Detroit style coneys either.
On the Wisconsin trip I wanted to stop at the Mustard Museum in Mt. Horab. We planned to stop there on Saturday morning. At breakfast in the Wisconsin Dells Friday morning the USA Today I bought to get the Soduko featured a story on the museum – it was National Mustard Day Saturday! Mt Horab was planning a big blowout since the Museum was moving to another town. Anyway, when we got there Main Street was blocked off for the celebration. Food, drinks and a good time, too bad we couldn’t stay longer.
Seymour, Wisconsin claims it is the home of the hamburger – and they have a statue of Charlie to prove it. See him in the Big People section. Across the street is this grill that cooked the World’s Largest Hamburger. I think the burger is a replica now to stand up to the Wisconsin winters. Seymour was planning a “Burger Fiesta” for August 8th. We were too early, maybe some other time.
Would you like some fries with your hot dog? This group of 4 images were part of the jackpot at Mel Schettl Sales outside Oshkosh, Wisconsin. My, how many big things. It was nearly overwhelming for Big Thingologists like Deb and me. We left feeling battle fatigue. I didn’t even get a image of the Jolly Green Giant you see in the background. After leaving Mel’s I had a taste for pizza. Vegetarian by the way. Where does your favorite pizza come from? I grew up in Detroit, down the street from Shields Bar which later became famous for the deep dish type pizza. My good friend Frank Parachetti was one of the pizza makers at Buddy’s which had the same style. Buddy’s bar was an old style Italian bar with a bocci court on the side of the building.
