Since I am new to this area, what are the regionally appropriate foods we will be tasting?  

Beer.
 
And since you're a wine aficionado you might want to sample some Wisconsin vintages while you're here; Wollersheim is the state's largest winery and probably the easiest to find.  There might be a couple of smaller producers around the FdL area but if so I'm not familiar with them.

Don't even think of drinking crap Wisconsin wine.

A climate that's good for corn, soybeans, cranberries and ginseng is not especially good for fine wine grapes.

Ann,

If you can't arrange a ride, we'll find a way to squeeze you in.

Maybe gyp and Michael could get me along the way....Bob has to work, but he would drop me off at the freeway, with a sign, saying" Need to eat in Fond du Lac-and meet Joe Rogo".........


 
You're too much Ann!  But I can't wait to meet you also!

Hey, one thing about Joe is that he always dresses in an understated manner befitting a serious businessman. You guys quit messing with him.

Non-spreadsheet Spreadsheet:

I pulled up times on Saturday since Buddy will be in Wisconsin Friday night (if attending).

Friday - time tbd, Fishfry at ScreamingChicken's restaurant choice.

Saturday - 10:00, Widmer's Cheese

Saturday - 11:00, Schreiner's

Saturday - after Schreiner's, Tuckers

I need ideas for Saturday p.m.

Please make suggested changes and additions.

Right now it's looking like we're not going to be able to leave until Saturday morning, so while I appreciate the responsibility I think I'll have to recuse myself from this decision.

It's official: The Roadhouses are IN!  All obstacles have been cleared and hotel reservations for Friday night are in the works.  See all you mackerel snappers on the 14th!

For Friday we are considering going to Randy's Neighbor's Inn in West Allis. It has received the MFL mark of approval.
 
Anyone have a better idea?

Didn't realize we were staying in the Milwaukee area for Friday night's dinner.  Not a big deal, but I thought we were all early birds in Fon du Lac and would have dinner there.  I reckon we can make a dinner stop in MLW then continue up north.  No cocktails for me though.  Guess I'll live.

Buddy,
 
That was just a suggestion. We'll be happy to join you nearer to your hotel.

Whatever is best for the group.  I have no set expectations for this outing other than to spend quality time with my friends.  Will more people join us if we stay closer to Milwaukee?
 
If not, I'd vote for Fish Fry in FdL for a couple of reasons:
1. It will allow us to drive up in shortened daylight hours.
2. It gives us maximum exposure to the offerings of Fondy.  I know I won't get up there again for awhile, and I'm pretty sure even the Milwaukee folks don't make regular trips up there.  We can eat closer to home anytime.  Let's see what Fon du Lac has to offer.
 
Buddy
 
P.S. Re-reading this thread from the beginning makes me think we might have a better Friday night turnout if we go to Fon Du Lac.
