Happy Healthy Eatery at Olde Main & Great American Banana Split Celebration in Latrobe!

What a combination! This Friday, Saturday & Sunday is the greatest celebration of all time - the historic Latrobe banana split.
"Designed to celebrate Latrobe’s unique history as the birthplace of the banana split in 1904 and the placement of a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Historical Marker, the three-day event will be an all-American family celebration for persons of all ages.
Dole’s Bobby Banana (a 6-foot walk-around banana character) and Valley Dairy’s Joe “Ice Cream Joe” Greubel will serve as the honorary co-chairs of the event and participate in the official ceremonies." (See details and schedule)
Why not come to Latrobe this weekend and enjoy the best of both worlds - happy healthy authentic northern Chinese food and a banana split! The Happy Healthy Eatery will be open from 10am to 9pm through the weekend. It is located at 350 Main Street in the Olde Main building. 724 717-8614 is currently the answering service for Mountain Palace and Happy Healthy Eatery.
