Default Would Love a Detailed Report

I'm going to be in the Fort Wayne area this weekend. I'd go a day early and make the 2 hour drive to Port Clinton if I thought there were any goodies to be had. I'm mostly interested M1Ds; but, I'd still make the drive if I thought I'd come home with a FG Special.

Any scuttle butt on the inventory?

I intend to call North Store Friday afternoon, but I would love one too. I am some 10 hours away but will be visiting family in Michigan so I intend to make the 3 hour drive to be there Saturday morning for possibly a once in a lifetime visit. Any recommendations on a good spot for lunch in Port Clinton?

It looks to me like there are a lot of great pubs and eateries down by the fisherman's wharf.

I decided to just throw myself into the hands of fate. I booked a room at the Island House Hotel Friday night. I'm going to head out from the Indianapolis area after work Friday night.

Thank goodness I am blessed with a girlfriend that goes with the flow. This was originally a two day trip to see Grand Funk Railroad in Angola, IN.

I'll see you Saturday morning!

I think fate is going to treat you pretty good. Especially if you get the fresh perch at Jolly Roger.

There are a couple of not so great ones too. I'll second McCarthy's for sure though.

There's an Irish place downtown, too. Some like to make the thirty or so minute drive to the east side of Toledo to get the Tony Packo experience. HAven't been there in a long time - anybody know if it's still in business?

Surely some forum member went today. Anybody? Bueller? Whats the limits in place? The normal 8/calendar year or something less?

Looks like Tony Packo's is still in business: http://www.tonypacko.com/

The Irish pub is McCarthy's. Nice place. However, if you've never been to Packo's you have to go. Famous for their dogs but be sure to get some of their Chicken Paprikash with dumplings. It's like Hungarian Heaven on Earth!
