The LPGA golfers at the Marathon Classic are busy.
It’s wake-up, get to the course, eat, hit the putting green and driving range, media events, practice rounds, dinner, sleep and repeat.
Malena and Go 419 wanted to take defending Marathon Classic Champion I.K. (In-Kyung) Kim out on the town but was one can imagine, she was a little busy.
So, Go 419 brought the best to I.K. Kim!
From the iconic Tony Packo’s pickles and Hungarian hotdogs to Glass from the Toledo Museum of Art Pavilion … all connecting right back to the Marathon Classic.
Jamie Farr stared as “CPL. Maxwell Q. Clinger” in the hit show M*A*S*H from the 1970s and is from Toledo! And … so was Clinger! Farr helped put Toledo and Tony Packo’s on the map after he featured some of his character’s favorite things from back home – like the Tony Packo’s pickles!
For 28 years, Jamie Farr was the presenting sponsor and host of the LPGA tournament. Now a charity program is in his name, Jamie Farr Scholarship Fund for local students.
Thousands of signed buns line the walls of Original Tony Packo’s on Front Street, including one signed by I.K. Kim.
The Toledo Museum of Art is what it is today because of the support from the Libbey Family. You may know the name, Libbey Glass. Toledo’s namesake “Glass City” comes from the more than 180 years that the Libbey Glass has been leading the way in the glassmaking industry, celebrating 200 years in 2018.
Edward Drummond Libbey and Francis Scott Libbey were lovers of the arts and collectors. Because of the investment by the Libbey family, the Toledo Museum of Art continues to be a topnotch museum in the country.
The Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion house this history of studio glassmaking that started right here in the Glass City.
And what would a visit to Toledo be without a stop at the Toledo Mud Hens! Baseball in Toledo goes back nearly as far as glassmaking. The Triple Team in the International League started in 1896 and continues to be a staple in our community. Not to mention, they’re in first place!
