Started day off with working on the computers again.  

Evening for dinner Chris took us to a very unique place called The Industrial Revolution.  With life size steel sculptures of the iron workers who built the twin towers across the top of the building and the front front built with steel beams.  Inside the entrance way was a life size steel man sitting on a bench as shown in the picture below. Walking in to the restaurant we saw all types of pictures of how the steel fabric of our country was put together.  There were videos running in view of each table of inventors and mechanical history.

 

 

 

Each week they honored an inventor at the tables with a picture and his bio.  Today was  George Eastman (July 12, 1854 " March 14, 1932) who was an American innovator and entrepreneur who founded the Eastman Kodak Company and invented roll film, helping to bring photography to the mainstream.

Then there was a large scale train circling around the rooms while we enjoyed our dinner. The menu had such delicacies as a 5 lb burger with fries at a cost of 38.50 but it would be free if you could eat the entire thing.  No one has done it yet but they are filming it and watching for the first.   Chris ordered some type of a giant quadrupled burger with a U.S. Flag on the top.    Dudley enjoyed the pot roast which had been simmered for several hours and it melted in his mouth. I enjoyed a large chicken chipotle salad.  Needless to say to go boxes were in order for a few of us.
