The rich land of the area gives the mint a strong bouquet and flavor that is highly prized by Pun citizens. A celebration is held every year and people come from all over the island to partake in the festivities on June 30, Judge Mint Day.

There are also displays covering the outlawed Strip Polka and the Buttin’s Key cannibals’ annual feast dance, the Hominy Minuet.
Featured Restaurant of the Month: Pasture Prime (formerly Livery’s Table) in Doodah in north central Pun. Owner and chef Runford DeRoses used to tend the old race horses that had been put out to pasture from the tracks in Doodah. After he retired, he opened this little eatery. Despite the tacky decor, this is a fine restaurant with an impressive a la carte selection. Try the house specialty, Pasture Prime, or the Belmont Steaks, or the Filly Mignon, and tell us if there isn’t something different about the texture and flavor of DeRoses’ cooking. Fresh baked Thoro Bread is served with each meal. Ample parking and quick service mean that you won’t have to wait furlong. Overlooking Betonda Bay.
