Title: Dining Out at Wigands
Author: Cooke, Reverend Henry
Description: In July 1891, Rev. Henry Cooke recorded that on two occasions "we all took dinner at Wigands" [a restaurant near the docks at Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island]." The one great peculiarity of Wigands is that they insist upon putting the dessert on the table before, long before, you are through with the rest of your dinner and you have to hold on to it with your left hand while you eat with your right, for fear an excusionist [a visitor on a day's outing] empty ... and hungry might get hold of it."
