Holy Land USA
Waterbury, Connecticut 

Holy Land USA was once an 18 acre Bible-themed park located in Waterbury, Connecticut. The park had about 40,000 visitors a year until it closed in 1984 for renovations. Holy Land USA never opened back up again due to the death of owner John Greco in 1986. It has been abandoned ever since. The abandoned acres of the theme park have been watched over by groups of nuns for decades, but the place keeps getting more and more creepy as the park continues to deteriorate. 

On top of the vandalism and eeriness the park gives off, a teenager was murdered on these abandoned grounds in 2010. Since then police records have shown that the amount of trespassers have been decreasing which just means abandoned Holy Land USA is as creepy and deserted as ever.

Rune ( @runetangclan) took us to Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, VT for dinner. There was Frenet on draught so of course we did shots with Schlitz 60s Formula chasers. Rune also expertly ordered some delicious starters for us including these heavenly pork rinds, fried pimento cheese balls with a sweet chili dipping sauce and hush puppies with maple butter. Girl Interrupted got the house mac and cheese which was decadent and enormous and I got the house burger with pimento cheese, applewood smoked bacon and fried green tomato. Last but not least Rune ordered the Take A Knee: Tom Cat gin (my favorite) Amaro, honey and lemon and I got the Hill Farmstead Edward (American Pale Ale). I wish we had more time to taste all their beer and cocktail offerings but we’ll have to save it for another trip.
