Lunch at Iggy's Chowder House

Okay, so I went to Iggy's today for a "quick" bowl of chowder+clamcakes. Then I saw the line of customers snaking down the block and realized it might not be so quick. Did I get in line and wait?? Yes I did! It's THAT GOOD!! So, good in fact that we have some exciting news coming that we can't wait to tell you about! We should be able to announce it later this afternoon or tomorrow morning........stay tuned!

And, good guessing on the Halloween trivia! The haunted tavern is The White Horse Tavern in Newport, and the haunted Hotel is, indeed, The Biltmore. On October 29, 1929, the stock market crashed and began the great depression. This devastated stockbroker jumped to his death from the 4th floor and is said to haunt the place to this day!
