Design fall leaves

It is the height of fall foliage season in the town of Griddle Creek. This time of year, the leaves turn from green to various shades of red, yellow, orange and brown.

What to do: In Griddle Creek you can go on a Leaf Peeping Tour. The tour takes leaf peepers around the most scenic parts of the town to view and photograph the fall foliage. Get out and see the leaves before they all fall off the trees.

Where to do it: Anywhere around town. There are lots of other places to view the fall foliage that are not on the Leaf Peeping Tour.

Inside tip: DeCaffe raking the leaves off her lawn is not on the tour. Move along, there is nothing to see here.

The Fool’s Checkmate!

Design Chess day

Today is National Chess Day. Chess is not as popular as Checkers in Griddle Creek but there are a few folks around town that play. Chess is a game of fun and wit where the object of the game is to capture the opponent’s king.

What to do: Break out your chess set and play a game. Log on online and play against an opponent on the other side of the world. If you’re in Griddle Creek, ask around to find out where the chess games take place.

Where to do it: Anywhere you can find a fellow chess player and a flat surface to place a chessboard on.

Inside tip: Don’t play chess with Sonny because he cheats. Checkers is his game.

Who Wants Pizza?!

Design Pizza Day

Today is National Sausage Pizza day and the town of Griddle Creek is celebrating. The options range from the high-end at The Maple Hotel through to the more budget friendly at the Sunnyside Diner.

What to do: Stop into your favorite pizzeria and purchase the largest sausage pizza they have. If you’re short on time order a sausage pizza online and it will be ready for you to pick up on the way home from work. The potential pizza topping combinations are practically endless.

Where to do it: For local flavor, we recommend the Sunnyside Diner. Although convenient, we do not recommend you get your pizza from the GC Gas Station. Ignore the many colorful signs inside the station claiming how hot and tasty the slices are.

Inside tip: A favorite pizza at the Sunnyside Diner is the Misty Eye. Rumor has it that Sonny was once asked how the name originated and his answer was the pizza is so good it will make your eyes well-up with joy. The Misty Eye is a thin crust sausage pizza topped with onion and green pepper.
