And the food...very different from your normal pizza joint. From our brussels sprout salad with apples, dried cherries and a balsamic redux, you get the general idea this is not your mom's cooking. After savoring the brussels sprouts salad, a white beet salad and a Hamaker pizza and designer cocktails, we headed out to another of our favorite places, The Slippery Noodle Inn. And that's where our John Dillinger weekend began.
I've mentioned the Slippery Noodle Inn in previous blogs. We attend their Halloween contests (where Mike won first place last year in his Iron Man costume), listen to live bands and enjoy quick meals downtown when we are going to a concert or a Colts game. But the place also has a history. It's the oldest continually operating bar in Indiana(since 1850), and it's on National Register of Historic Places.

Assuming Mike knew where Dillinger's grave was located, we agreed to this little sojourn and began to drive through the cemetery. Or course he had never been to Dillinger's grave before and had NO IDEA where it was located. So we drove around and around, and that's when we realized just how big 555 acres is.
And there were a few interesting signs along the way, things you just don't expect to read in a cemetery...
