Good Food

We spent the night in Mentor, Ohio in order to visit the James Garfield sites on Sunday. We started the morning at a local donut place — Spudnuts — which turned out to be excellent.

After seeing what there was to see, we headed down to Akron for a late lunch at Swensons Drive-In.

Their specialty was something called the Galley Boy, a delicious double cheeseburger with two special sauces (which I’m pretty sure were mayonnaise and chili). The chocolate shake was also very tasty.

We drove across town to Strickland’s Frozen Custard. It looked scary when we arrived because there was a huge gang of people in identical shirts from some local church. But they were all being served out a side window while the front window was open for other customers so we got our ice cream almost immediately. I got an M&M blizzard with chocolate ice cream.

The custard was great, but I was most excited about the view. Right across the road was the Goodyear Airdock, where blimps and airships were built from 1929 to 1960. (More photos here.)
