Many are aware of the impact Lake Maxinkuckee had on the life and music of legendary musician and composer Cole Porter. That legacy will be showcased in gala fashion, live onstage and in a dynamic, musical manner when the Cole Porter Radio Hour headlines what promises to be an enchanted evening Saturday, June 9 at 7:30 p.m., at the Legion Memorial Building on Culver Academies' campus, sponsored by the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver.
Some might think it odd that Culver's longest-running restaurant (and possibly the longest-running in Marshall County) is celebrating its 36th anniversary this summer -- after all, why not 35, last year? Or wait until 40?
But Brian McCormack, co-founder and owner of Papa's in Culver thinks making the restaurantâ€™s 36th a big bash fits the "unconventional" identity of the longtime local faÂvorite, which opened its doors this week (May 16) in 1976.
"We did an after-prom pizza party," he says of the resÂtaurant's very first day. "That was our first run at it."
