Lorrie and I finally ate at the Vernada in September after wanting to for a couple of years. It was nice - very upscale for such a small town. I don't think they are open 7 days a week because they were closed one time when we tried to go. Or maybe that has changed.

The mom & pop restaurant (can't remember the name) that used to be next to the Airstream front office was closed when we were there in September (maybe for good?). A Subway opened up in September right on the corner at the stop light. I think there may be a take out pizza place. That's about it in town. Someone told us that there is a restaurant on the other side of I-75 that people sometimes go to, but that'd be several miles away. We've never been there and I can't remember the name.

If time and schedule permits, try to take in whatever movie is showing in the old theater in town. We saw a first run movie there for only $3 or $4 each a couple of years ago.

When I visited Airstream, Thor and Airstream brass could be heard lunching at Cafe Verandah. Nice place , but not open 7 days a week.

As a last resort, someone who has time during the day *hint hint* could call the village council / office / whatever you call it and see what advice they can offer for a restaurant in town that can accommodate us other than Verandah.

Personally, I'm holding out for sitting around a campfire with a heavy jacket on with the kids inside the AS snug as a bug with the furnace on and the TV playing "Finding Nemo for the 235,631st time. But in case of truly lousy weather which is entirely possible at this time of year in Ohio, we need to have a backup plan.

I suppose the best thing to do would have been to research all this and then make one post, but I'm brainstorming...

I just called and listened to the answering machine message at Verandah. They are open 11am-3pm and 5-9pm on Friday and Sat., closed Sunday. So, this is definitely an option but they'd send us packing at 9 if we were still there.

I'll bite.

How many should I say they would need to accommodate?

At least 20, but it's better if they can accommodate 30.

Hi all.

I spoke with friends at Airstream Inc and put the question to them: What eatery in town could host 20 - 30 streamers.

The only answer was Cafe Verandah.

They thought we might be able to squeeze into the Bar.

Anyone thinking Pot Luck in a few E-Z up type tents set-up on the lawn.

There is plenty of grassy areas back of the Terra Port by the bar-b-q pit.

Bring a extra propane bottle with a infrared heater head to supply heat (That's what our unit does in the event of cold weather)

Just thinking out loud...

Sounds good to me! Maybe we can earn our "Camp Alaska" airstreaming award!

Another idea: steal keys to service bay and setup in there.....

So I've been thinking of what kind of fun activities we might be able to have besides the normal.

Without being to "formal", how about a "trailer driving school" presented by someone that actually knows how (not me )! Discuss hooking up, backing, use of overdirive, tire inspection, and whatever else comes up. This came up recently in a post and sounded like a neat idea.

Maybe follow that with a safety inspection?

And then how about a trailer rodeo in the afternoon for some cool prizes? We could do blindfolded backing led by your partner!

I need some sleep.....

Jason's still at work, but I'll go ahead and speak for him

We're up for trying to earn our "Camp Alaska" awards.

I went to a campgrounds and they had a contest of running an obstacle course in golf carts blindfolded with the passenger verbally navigating and it was a hoot.

Not sure if we can make it so we shouldn't really vote but it sounds like Camp Alaska and improv would be more fun as opposed to a restaurant setting. Something tells me the kids would have more fun at home in the AS and in the wild on the grass, regardless of their biological ages, young or old.

With so many parking areas, and fields of grass on Airstream property, I would think skate boards, bikes and skates and outdoor games would have plenty of ground to cover in the immediate and outlying areas. Frisbe and playing ball, should pose no problems to find ample space within a short walking distance. It's a very dog friendly environment as well. BTW I like the food at the corner bar, just in case we really need fortification out of the elements whatever those "elements" might prove to be. It's got the old fashioned bowling game and tvs, seems to be the local lunch and after work hang-out.

Pizza, chicken or other take out should also be available in JC. The supermarket has great chicken ready to go. Though our AS ovens should be up to the chore just fine.

OOPS. Just tore mine (oven) out this winter as part of "renovation". Oh well, it was intentional. I'm a grillin' kind of guy, and yes, I do it in the snow and I do it with charcoal!
