I have been asked, on several occasions, as to what I am going to do next. Will I continue to do the blog? Will I do something totally different? The … [Read more...]

Margarita's Mexican Restaurant, 500 Spring Valley Drive, Middlebury Recently, I heard about a newer restaurant called Margarita's which is an authentic Mexican restaurant. When I looked it up, I must admit, I was little puzzled to find that it was in Middlebury. Not that there is anything wrong with Middlebury, just that with all the Amish stuff out there, I didn't expect there to be a Mexican place. That said, as I was driving through Middlebury today, I decided to stop in and give it a … [Read more...]

D.C.'s Pizza and Subs, 909 Goshen Ave, Elkhart Because I like bargains, I subscribe to most if not all of the the local coupon Groupon, Living Social, WSBT Deals etc..... The other day, I received an email with an offer for D.C.'s Pizza in Elkhart so I went ahead and bought it to give me more incentive to give it a try. And boy am I glad that I did!!! I must admit, I had never heard of D.C.'s prior to this, so I was not sure what to expect. I did a little background … [Read more...]

Snow Tubing and Cross Country Skiing at Five Pines Ministries in Berrien Center We have gotten a small taste of the winter snow recently, but when it hits full throttle soon, why not make your way to Berrien Center in Michigan to do some snow tubing or cross country skiing at Five Pines Ministries. The big draw is the snow tubing. Five Pines offers up a 400 foot tubing hill!! The cost is $8 per person per day. Of course, right now there is not enough snow yet, so you just have to wait until … [Read more...]

Pete's Patio, 2433 N. 5th Street, Niles I spent the first 23 years of my life in Niles, so I am no stranger to Pete's Patio on North 5th Street. Pete's has been ¬†around for about 50 years now and has an excellent reputation for Pizza. It had been several years since I had been there, so I decided that my 365 Blog would not be complete if I did not get a post about Pete's before the 365th post. In case you have not noticed yet, I am a HUGE fan of pizza. My guess, is that most of us our. My … [Read more...]

Antojitos Mexicanos, 102 Middlebury Street, Elkhart A little over a month ago a new, small, locally owned authentic mexican restaurant opened up in downtown Elkhart. I had heard a couple of good things about it, so Kimberly and I wanted to give it a try. It was a little hard to find. Although it is downtown, it is on one of the side streets, kind of off the beaten path....if you know what I mean. But it is worth the search though. As I stated, I had heard a couple of good things about it … [Read more...]

Main Street Coffee House, 102 N. Main Street, South Bend I am not typically a big coffee house guy, because I don't drink coffee. However, I do like a good hot chocolate, and who doesn't like good baked goods? So, after talking with several people about where they have had great experiences with local coffee houses, there was one name that consistently came up, Main Street Coffee House in downtown South Bend. So, this morning I decided to head on over and check it out, and I am glad I did. … [Read more...]

Parisi's Ristorante Italiano, 1412 South Bend Avenue, South Bend Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the more chain type restaurants in our area and take for granted that we have some truly great local restaurants. One of those local places is Parisi's over by Notre Dame. It seems like Parisi's has been around forever. They opened in 1981 and have been serving great food ever since. The pasta's and sauces are made right on site and one of their specialties, I am told, is the hand cut … [Read more...]
