The Lighthouse Restaurant in Michigan City Illinois sits near the lake. It’s a mom and pop place, a perfect match for the nearby beaches and Indiana sand dunes. Clad in spandex we rode our bicycles to the front and locked them up next to a cluster of big Harley Davidson motorcycles. Inside the restaurant, our table adjoined the hulking leather clad men with bandanas and mirrored sunglasses and their windswept women who could claim the big hogs outside.
We ordered, and as we waited I wondered what we might overhear from this wild looking crew. Imagine my surprise to hear their big gruff leader pose to the group: “So, tell me, is beauty subjective or objective?”
Aside from the six glasses of water I tried the stuffed tomato. A fresh tomato with homemade ham salad, peaches, cottage cheese, an egg, peperoncinis and Greek olives – a fun one-half way repast.
The moral: People and restaurants will surprise you in unexpected delightful ways – if you just let them.
