After the Friday night pep rally, we headed to Joe’s Tavern. Joe’s was very easy to find, and we were able to locate not only the hospital, but the county jail. Word is that part of the movie Rudy was filmed at Joe’s.
As we entered, the Notre Dame Fight song was played. We obviously looked like silly tourists. After we sat down dad asked the waitress if she knows his friend Slugg. Of course she said yes and that he would be in soon with a group of 25.
We ate a good meal, typical bar & pub food. After the meal, the next group of fans entered. A group of bachelor party guys from Springfield, IL. Go figure – my dad knew a few of the guys.
