Marietta Friday Night

Ryan, Brian, Elaine, and I traveled to Marietta, Ohio and stayed at the Hampton Inn, in preparation for going to Aaron's Ohio University Graduation tomorrown in Athens. There was a street fair going on in downtown Marietta and the first person we met, was serving free samples of pizza. Turns out, it was the Mayor of Marietta, Moon Mullen. It was a very nice affair, lots of people out, shopping, and the downtown restaurants were very busy.
Next, we ate dinner at the Gun Room Restaurant, part of the Lafayette Hotel. The whole town is very historic and the restaurant was just part of the history motif. The inside was exactly like a turn to the century riverboat, very unusual. The food was very good.
Here is the Ohio River Bridge downtown.
