Following the zoo we went to Tony Packo’s, a restaurant made famous by M*A*S*H. Jamie Farr is a Toledo native and garnered his favorite eatery some free publicity by mentioning it (often) on the show. His picture is prominent in the restaurant and our t-shirts were appreciated by other customers. I ordered the famous hot dog and it was good but honestly I prefer a Detroit coney. After dinner we originally planned to check out the Tigers’ minor League team, the Mudhens, but decided to save that activity for another day. Even without American’s favorite pastime, we had a great trip and a classic summer Saturday.
I really am a helpless fangirl and this weekend we took an overdue trip to Toledo to pay tribute to Max Klinger (aka Jamie Farr) of M*A*S*H. If you’ve never seen the 11 season comedy about the Korean war I highly recommend putting it on your bucket list. It’s a brilliant show that is both funny and thought-provoking. I’m partial to the last six seasons and I’ve watched it more times than I can count.
On Saturday we met Gina, Garrett and little Cindel at the Toledo Zoo. It’s a very nice facility and I can understand why people speak highly of it. The layout and design are creative and remind me of an amusement park. My favorite part of our visit was our photo-op by the signature M*A*S*H sign.
