Papa’s to celebrate anniversary as Culver's, county's longest-running restaurant

May 19, 2012

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 restaurant’s 36th a big bash fits the "unconventional" identity of the longtime local fa­vorite, which opened its doors this week (May 16) in 1976.

"We did an after-prom pizza party," he says of the res­taurant's very first day. "That was our first run at it."
