Celebrating Illinois' Two Presidential Sons
My co-worker Kathy and I went to Harry Caray’s yesterday for their special Inaugural Lincoln/Obama Menu.
An exact replica of the menu served at Lincoln’s First Inaugural Dinner.
For $16.44 (Lincoln was the 16th President and Obama is the 44th) we dined on the following:
Mock Turtle Soup (just how they get those little guys to wear mock turtle necks,I’ll never know!)
Corned Beef/Cabbage/Boiled Potatoes (I felt a gas bubble or two!)
and Blackberry Pie with coffee.
Everything that President Lincoln dined on all those years ago...with the only possible exception - a couple Mimosas that we just HAD to have, for toasting purposes only, of course!!
hope is a strong force
