No secret that Home Cafe is our favorite restaurant in BG. Maybe anywhere. Josh & Chelsey are rock stars around here, and never more so than each year when they serve up their Oktoberfest menu.

I have no idea how they create so much great food in that small restaurant, but this is one of those days when there are more customers than seats. If you've never been, make a point to visit next year. It's the perfect family-style menu and if you have a table full it's easy to go through the whole menu before going back for more.
|Best time to avoid the crowd?|
2:30 - 3:00.
|Little Man is in there somewhere...|
|There he is!|
|Almost Famous Soft Pretzels w/ Beer Cheese.|
They're plenty famous by now and extra cheese is well worth the 50 cents.
|Fried Potato & Cheese Perogies w/ Dill Sour Cream.|
|Kentucky Proud Bratwurst w/ Sauerkraut & Chips.|
Love those brats from John's Custom Meats.

|The Oktoberfest Sausage Trio w/ Cuke-Tomato Salad features John's Brats, Kielbasa, and Andouille.|
In the background is the Vette City Wienerschnitzel (Kirby & Poe pork tenderloin) w/ Brown Butter Parmesan Spaetzle.
|Jackson's Apple Strudel featuring apples from Jackson's Orchard of course.|
I'm not big on desserts, but WOW.

A few of the many cars enjoying the first HPDE weekend at the new NCM Motorsports Park.
So, that was fun. A few hours later when my wife wanted more pretzels I figured that was a good excuse to get another brat, so we called an order in. Pretzels were already sold out, but brats and dessert were still available...
|The line was back to the door again and all the seats were taken, inside and out.|
