The Stand

The Divas went to the Fort Wayne International Airport to pick up a dear friend and former Diva, Kathy. She was returning from the Caymen Islands. By the time we got to Bluffton Road, we were all hungry and stopped at a place called The Stand, located at 5200 Bluffton Road.

This particular day, the weather was cool, breezy and quite a change from the Caymen Islands! None the less we had a delicious lunch of all things hot dogs. The picnic tables are outside with umbrellas to protect from the elements. Even so, it was quite a change for Kathy for it was only 70 degrees that day! Not only are there plenty of tables, but a drive-through is available, too.

We dined on coney dogs, habanero dogs, brats with sauerkraut and of course a bag of chips. For drinks, we had smoothies: the island oasis. Delicious! I guess Kathy just couldn’t let the islands go! There was also chili, a variety of soups, a variety of sandwiches to choose from as well as sodas, slushes, ice cream and sundaes. Did I mention this beautiful little stand is located next to a driving range? This is a great place to spend the afternoon. Will the Divas return? Of course we will and hope to see you there!
