Porter’s Place

Today is Ami’s birthday. We celebrated yesterday by going swimming at this really cool pool and doing other stuff.

For lunch we went to Porter’s Place. I’ve been dying to go there since I found out it existed. Porter’s Place is a restaurant that has been handed down generation to generation through Orrin Porter Rockwell’s family. It isn’t situated in the same location as it once was since the state tore down the original building to erect the state penn.

It still has a western saloon type look and feel which was quite pleasant. The menu was quite large and I greatly enjoyed the Rockwell Revelation burger! In case you didn’t already know Porter Rockwell in my all time hero. His biography is among my 10 favorite books and I want Simon to be just like him (shhhh don’t tell Ami).

We really enjoyed lunch there and they didn’t even think it weird that I was walking around taking pictures of everything. I highly recommend the experience!

    Don’t you find it a little ironic that they destroyed the former Porter’s Place to put up the state penn? I do. I hope Simon is like him in that he always remained true to the gospel and dedicated his life to the work. I can do without the killing people and the beard though.

    I hope Simon grows up to be rather more like his own dad. His dad has just as great a work to do; and the gifts necessary to succeed. But I’m glad you had fun at the restaurant.
