JFK - Required Sites Dealey Plaza Dedication Review

Unless you are a hardcore conspiracy theorist, this is a quick yet essential side trip that can bee accomplished in about an hour or so. Do a quick drive through Dealy Plaza, and notice the X painted on the road which marks the location of the car at the time of the assasination and take a peek at the "Grassy Knoll." Find a garage or a lot to park in and do a quick run through the museum. The guides in the museum are open, funny, and don't shirk discussions about conspiracy.

If you want to make it a JFK day, you can then head over to Campisi's Egyptian Lounge (an Italian Restaurant regardless of the name) off Mockingbird Lane and Greenville Ave, where Jack Ruby was a regular customer. The owner, Joe Campisi, was also the first person to visit Ruby after he was arrested. Joe later testified before the Warren Commission due to his relationship with Ruby. The restaurant is still family owned and, heck, you might even run into Amber, Joe's grand daughter, and former Playboy centerfold who still works there occassionally.
