Start off the day right with a good breakfast at Lynn’s.  They do not skimp on the servings and the eating is YUMMIFEROUS!! Much of my family met there in late December 2012 for a big breakfast.  Here are some of the goodies we had.

Lynn’s is also known for its unusual lamps.  There are probably two dozen strange and ugly lamps around the place.

Other unique characteristics include the decor, which is whimsically vibrant, kitschy and even tacky….

Got Tuba? — Travelers Club International Restaurant and Tuba Museum

Traveler’s Club International Restaurant and Tuba Museum

Back in May of 2008 I took a trip to Grand Rapids, MI and then headed home on some backroads.  I stopped in Okemos, MI for some lunch and a visit to the Travelers Club International Restaurant and Tuba Museum.

World Famous Sousaphountain

The restaurant is known for its diverse international cuisine, which you dine on casually while looking at the great variety of tubas and sousaphones.  You can also eat outside and listen to the gurgling of the Sousaphountain.  On this day I had a Buffalo Burger and it was great!!

The better part of the journey was all of the tubas around the place.  Here are a couple of photos.
