Report Spring Cruise Weekend Choices in National Road / U.S. 40 Posted February 19, 2008 I have submitted to Meet-O-Matic. The only weekend that is definitely out for me right now is the weekend of April 26. However, my 10-year-old plays soccer on Sundays in April and May, and that could mean that we only join you for part of the cruise. But I'll have to wait and see the soccer schedule. I will stop by the Woodridge and take a look and report back to you what I find. If you stay there, I would recommend stopping for dinner at Kleptz's Restaurant in Seelyville, a few miles east of the motel. I haven't eaten there, but I've never heard a bad word about the place. And the owner is a car collector, as well. Let me make another suggestion, as well. It's a little more pricey, but Terre Haute has a new Hilton Garden Inn on the site of the former Terre Haute House, at the old junction of U.S. 40 and U.S. 41, the historical "Crossroads of America." Within walking distance are a handful of locally owned restaurants/watering holes -- the Saratoga (restaurant/bar), Crossroads Cafe/La Familia Di Jeshua (homemade pizza, calzones, etc.), the Copper Bar (housed in a historic building; the bar is from the old Terre Haute House), and The Terminal (sports bar, food's iffy, but housed in the historic former bus terminal), and of course, the world famous Square Donuts (for breakfast the next day). Shameless plug warning!!! You can read a little bit more about most of those places here. End shameless plug Also, you might consider stopping for a root beer float at Lynn's Soda Fountain in downtown Brazil on your way through. Owned by a pharmacist and sitting right next door to the pharmacy, it includes a nice display of old medical/pharmaceutical items.
