Every Memorial Day weekend, it's Mardi Gras, a bachelor party and an insane asylum rolled into one.

The be-all and end-all shrimp cocktail and steak.

Summer's not summer without a pork chop sandwich, lemon shakeup, funnel cake and a walk through the barns and rides.

Eating at Rick's Boat House overlooking the sailboats docked at Eagle Creek Reservior.

Eat at the bar to save the hour long wait. Sign up for a table anyway, and if you get a table in the bar, give your table in the restaurant away to a couple that has been waiting.

Accomplished 1, 5, and 9. The shrimp cocktails at St. Elmo is the best I've had.
