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
