I would open a restaurant in downtown Eugene and hire a manager I could trust. The menu would be limited and change daily depending upon the fresh vegies, meat and fish available. Would be open for breakfast and lunch M-F. Dinner only on Fri and Sat, and Champagne Brunch only on Sundays. The menus would be decided upon by the chefs, manager, myself and the servers based on comments from their customers. Would have one or more international selections each day. I would support other local businesses by using local bakeries for bread and desserts; local farmers for produce, and meat, foul and fish from the locals. I may name it Valhallah (old Norsk meaning heaven).

A moderately price menu and comfortable surroundings with plenty of antique furniture, paintings, etc. would fit the bill nicely. If that doesn't work out, I'll just hang out at MJ's restaurant!
DC, you must have read my mind! I would love to have a B&B! :D

There is a small town in Potter County Pa called Austin. There's a building for sale and i would convert that to a Bed & Breakfast, catering to the needs of hunters and fishermen. I'd live there and construct my daily menues....and pack luches for the 12 (?) guests I have from spring through deer season - then off to Florida and back again for the Hunting/fishing season.

Hey, Crewsk! If I could have a B&B it would be a lot like this place: www.buxtoninn.com I absolutely love this place and it's only about 15 minutes away from here. It's a bit on the pricey side but I still go there all the time! 8)

Because I live in such a small town, I have actually put some thought into this one. I'd start up a .... gasp! ... Japanese steak house. Dubuque even doesn't have one. I have an ulterior motive here. A Japanese steak house would probably go over well with the locals as a party destination. BUT (and here's the ulterior motive) we could have sashimi, sushi, tempura, etc, in the tourist months when you can gamble a little (all those Chicagoans in town). It amazes me that Dubuque doesn't have a Japanese steak house as it is, so Galena could really get something going. Anyone with the bucks, come on out.

There's a wonderful little town close by here that appeals to tourists and day trippers. There's a spring-fed lake in the middle that is always busy with fly fisherman and families feeding ducks, people strolling, etc. Around the lake are beautiful, old victorian homes. There is a tiny one that's always appealed to me that I'd convert into a bakery and soup and sandwich shop. People could sit outside along the lake or enjoy the view from inside.

I'd open a bakery, with emphasis on artisanal breads, also rolls, brioche, that kind of thing, and a lesser line in pastries, maybe packaged coffees. I'd keep the door propped open, so the heavenly aroma of baking bread would envelope the street and drive the population mad.

That's the fantasy. In reality I'd probably have to flog junk like KK-style donuts and cupcakes, to keep the doors open.
