Happening Now! Planning a stay in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, area? Whether you are looking for delicious dining, interesting attractions and shops, enticing events or home away from home lodging—a getaway to Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, is sure to satisfy. Right now the locals are talking about their holiday shopping and the good eats you can get quickly in between the rush of purchasing wonderful holiday gifts! Ok, so readers may have noticed from my earlier posts that food is pretty much the  center of my life.  For the oddest reason my greatest fear is starvation.  It is odd because I have been blessed with never missing a meal my whole life, yet this fear is real.  So when I plan to do anything whether it is going to a friends' home or going to run an errand, I always plan where the closest food stops are nearby in case I need to grab a snack!  And during holiday shopping time, which can bring in huge crowds of people and lines may be long, I make sure I know exactly the different locations for every dining option. Tippecanoe Mall offers a wide variety of dining from quick fast food service to sit and dine service.  If you are looking for a quick snack or meal there are many great options: Arbys, Auntie Anne's Pretzels (one of my favorites for a quick snack), Breakfast Nook, Cinnabon, Inside Scoop, J.L Hufford Coffee & Tea, Luca Pizza di Roma, McDonald's, Nori Japan, Panda Express, Panera Bread, Subway, Wendy's and Zeus Gyros. Wow!  So many options....no fear of going hungry here!  If you need to relax your feet during your holiday shopping spree, sit back at Applebees, Hooters, O'Charley's, Pepe's Mexican Restaurant and/or Texas Roadhouse. Sometimes holiday shopping can become a little stressful, but knowing there is good food nearby can be a great relief to shoppers.  A quick snack or break can bring back the holiday cheer!
