President's Day Logic Puzzle: Chester A. Arthur Ate Here
by Randall L. Whipkey
"George Washington slept here" has been a hospitality trade
cliche for a long time now, but five Blue Ridge area fine food
establishments proudly boast that a President "ate here"
and that diners can enjoy the very same dish prepared
exactly the same way as when the President ate it. From the
bill of fare that follows, you should be able to solve
the President's Day Logic Problem of what meal each Chief
Executive ate (one loved the chicken and dumplings) at which
dining room and in what Blue Ridge town it is located (one
is in Greenlake).
- Neither Chester A. Arthur nor Warren G. Harding is
the President the Wessex Inn boasts about serving.
- The dining room in Mount Royal isn't the one that
hosted either Benjamin Harrison or Martin Van Buren.
- Ironically, the Presidential dish at the Brook Trout
Lodge isn't the stuffed trout, nor is it peppery pork.
- John Quincy Adams's visit to the Blue Ridge didn't
include a stop at the Wessex Inn.
- The establishment where Warren G. Harding dined, the one
where one President enjoyed venison stew, and the one
located in Mount Royal all advertise "___ Ate Here" on
their web sites.
- The Presidential peppery pork isn't on the menu at the
- The Harmony House isn't the dining room that features
the stuffed trout one Chief Executive liked.
- The place where Pres. Arthur ate, the Greyfriar Plantation,
and the one which served a President venison stew all
are featured in local county travel brochures.
- Neither the Harmony House nor the Lee Hotel is the
Presidential dining spot in Centreville.
- Pres. Van Buren's dinner wasn't stuffed trout.
- Neither John Quincy Adams nor Warren G. Harding is the
President touted as having eaten at the Greyfriar
- The Presidential visits to the Harmony House and the
Lee Hotel didn't occur in Mount Royal.
- Neither the Wessex Inn nor the establishment with the
Presidential venison stew on its menu is the hostelry
visited by a Chief Executive in Autumndale.
- Pres. Harrison didn't have either peppery pork or
stuffed trout on his Blue Ridge visit.
- The President who ate at the dining room in Wayne's
Ferry wasn't John Quincy Adams.
- The Centreville establishment's White House dish isn't
peppery pork or President's rabbit pie.
