Haunted restaurant serves up the paranormal
Would you like gravy on that, hon? From The Minot (N.D.) Daily News:
Glady Pierce has added history, ambiance and the paranormal to attract visitors to what has become one of the most successful restaurants in Saskatchewan. Pierce, the owner of the Hopkins Dining Parlour in downtown Moose Jaw since 1978, was recently featured on national television, not about the food or the history of the building, but about a ghost that allegedly continues to roam throughout the three-story mansion. Pierce and her Victorian restaurant were recently featured on the CTV prime-time show "Creepy Canada,'' which presents episodes of the paranormal. The segment aired during the 2003-2004 season, but Pierce keeps a video of it on site and shows it to visitors in the lounge. According to employees who work for Pierce, the Hopkins house is haunted by the ghost of Minnie Hopkins. She was the wife of territorial homesteader Edward Hopkins, who built the structure in 1905, the same year that Saskatchewan became a province.Make your reservations early. The dinners are to die for.
