The Bagnell Dam Strip is just right up the road from your favorite seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and will host the Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals next week. Thousands of people will flock to the Lake for a weekend full of nostalgia and impressive automobiles. JB Hook's gathered all the details of this year's event so you won't miss any of the fun.


29th Annual Magic Dragon  Street Meet Nationals May 5 - May 7, 2017 Bagnell Dam Strip

JB Hook's is positioned in an excellent spot for getting to see all of the classic car traffic go by all weekend long. You are likely to see quite a few of those beauties parked in our Lake of the Ozarks seafood restaurant parking lot throughout the weekend. Many arrive days before the actual car show.

Celebrate National Amaretto Day With JB Hook's

Image
National Amaretto Day is observed on April 19 annually. Amaretto in Italian means "a little bitter" and is bitter almonds or apricot kernels or both. If no almonds are used, the marzipan flavor is produced by a combination of apricot kernel oil, burnt sugar and a variety of spices. To celebrate National Amaretto Day, JB Hook's is taking a look into the very interesting (and romantic) history of Italy's most famous liqueur.

The Love Struck History of Amaretto

Like many famous cocktails and alcohols, the history of Amaretto is a bit fuzzy and several brands claim to be the creator. However, there is one story that stands apart from the rest. Amaretto is said to be the love product of a widowed innkeeper. Around 1525 in Saronno, Bernadino Luini, a student of Leonardo Da Vinci, was commissioned to paint the frescos of the local church and needed a model to portray the Virgin Mary.

Ice Cream With A Twist

Image
As the weather begins to warm and we're getting closer to the boating season at the Lake of the Ozarks, many people are starting to get spring fever. While it may not be summer quite yet, we can at least pretend for a bit and enjoy some ice cream while gazing out onto the best view at the Lake of the Ozarks on our outdoor patio. What could be better than that? Maybe if that bowl of ice cream had an adult twist!


Our talented bartenders at JB Hook's create incredibly delicious drinks on a daily basis. We have a fully stocked bar, which allows them to mix up nearly everything under the sun. Our bar also includes a vanilla soft serve ice cream machine that our mixologist uses to make many, many adult milkshakes. If you're looking for a little dessert with a twist at the best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may want to try one of these tasty ice cream cocktails.
