New Haven, Connecticut
June 2008
You may not think of New Haven, Connecticut as a typical place to go on vacation for the Fourth of July, but my mother won a free trip there and offered to take me along. We stayed at the Omni and basically ate all weekend long! Besides the free meals included in the prize at the hotel's 19th floor restaurant and the Playwright Irish Pub, we also went to Frank Pepe's Pizzeria and a fantastic Spanish tapas place called Barcelona. We also drove out to Olde Mistick Village in Mystic and to the Indian casinos since there really isn't anything much to do in New Haven!

The old bar at Frank Pepe's Pizzeria gives it such a classic look
You know you're in New England when the birch beer is white!
That's a coal fired oven. It gives Frank Pepe's pizza a distinctive taste.

Louis Lunch is allegedly where the hamburger was invented. Sadly, they were closed for the Fourth of July when I was there.

These ducks were waiting outside the hair salon. Insert your own joke here.
