***I checked their website, and it sounds like the Lapin Links are bratwursts made from rabbit. This sounds interesting and might be worthy of a trip to Leon, which is south of El Dorado.
WHAT TO EAT: Grass-fed elk burger (meat from Rocky Hills Elk Ranch) at Local Burger, 714 Vermont St., Lawrence; 785-856-7827
***I''ve never eaten at Local Burger, but I like the concept of the restaurant. Since I'm married to a rancher's daughter, we tend to grill our hamburgers at home. I'll check out Local Burger and get back to you.
WHAT TO DRINK: Oatmeal Stout at Free State Brewing, 636 Massachusetts St., Lawrence; 785-843-4555
