Nice pic on the bricks Davydd. Got my renewal and will be getting it in within the next week. Next time this way try the tenderloin at the Creekside Lodge in Crawfordsville.

On our annual Indy trip this year I kept it more low-key and actually passed on some potential tenderloins. I even opted to skip my namesake pork tenderloin at Grindstone Charley's.  We will be coming through Indianapolis again in a few weeks on our way to Washington DC so may have another one yet. We spent a weekend in Springfield, IL before coming over for the race attending the RV.net B8 RV Rally. If you haven't been to the Lincoln Museum in Springfield you owe it to yourself to do so. It was top notch.

Brickhouse Grill & Pub, Springfield, IL breaded pork tenderloin horseshoe, an open face sandwich unique to Springfield consisting of bread, tenderloin, French fries and a smothering of a cream cheese sauce.


For "research' purposes one has to try the Burger King Country Pork sandwich which is a breaded pork fritter. I believe this may be a special only in Indiana. I did not see any advertising for it elsewhere.



The Inn in Turkey Run State Park gives their tenderloin special billing on the menu as Parke County's best.


Sahm's in Fishers features a breaded pork tenderloin and a grilled pork tenderloin. Sahm's is above average but runs in the pack with many around Indianapolis.

Davydd, what did you think of the Turkey Run tenderloin?  I had one a couple of years ago and thought it was pretty good, but am interested in the opinion of your cultured palate.

It was OK and probably middle of the road in quality for Indiana. The breading could have been Panko or maybe corn flakes since they are bigger than most. The caramel coloring in appearance was unique. Most tenderloins have a tan coloring. It was not burned or over-fried. It may have been the oil they used.

I've been on Michigan's UP stuffing my face with pasties this past week and will be heading to Indianapolis tomorrow with a noontime lunch stop at Nick's Kitchen in Huntington, IN. Today I am in Midland, MI checking out microbrews. My schedule in Indy is the Aristocrat Wednesday evening and my annual high school reunion at Grindstone Charley's in Speedway on Friday evening. Those are all tenderloin opportunities other than the Track Loin on race day.
 
If we go to the track before the race it will most likely be Carb Day on Friday. Saturday is the day my sister invites family to stop by and we will hang around there.
 
Race day I will park in the Speedway HS parking lot since its athletic department gains from the proceeds. Old athletes remain forever faithful.
 
We have been mostly on the road with our camper van since March 1 and already have 10,000 miles racked up this spring.

I can not think of two events more stirring to one's heart than:
 
The Kentucky Derby and the playing of "My Old Kentucky Home"
and
Indianapolis 500 and Jim Nabors singing "Back Home Again In Indiana"
 
My eyes well with tears at the sight and sounds of each.
 
Race day is a magical experience, the sights, sounds and smells.  The balloon launch right before the race, the sip of ice cold milk (This year from a dairy farm in Fountain City, Indiana), Mari Human George croaking "Ladies and gentleman start your engines.
 
The one event I never realized was when Alice from the Brady Bunch sings... THEY NEVER SHOW THAT ON TV!!!
