I like the looks of that forecast.  I guess I'll add snowblower prep to my list of chores for this weekend.

Get ready to salt the roads with cheese brine.

I think if the weather turns bad we just switch the location to North Carolina.

Mr. Maki and I are probably in on Friday night.  I have to work until 4:00, and in theory, so does Mr. Maki, though he may be able to get out at 3:00 and meet me at work (farther north than home and his job), so it would be take less time to get to MKE on Friday evening than all the way up to FdL.  And given that long-range forecast, if it's correct, we'll be lucky to make it to where we're staying in Sheboygan.

From what I am seeing, the forecast has changed a bit. Doesnt look like much snow as temperatures mid week will be 40 degrees or so.

What's the schedule for this event, should we decide to drive up for Saturday?

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?


Reservations are a must. The fish fry starts at 4 pm. The German potato salad is a much better choice than the French fries. The did offer ala cart potato pancakes  which weren't tried but will be on my next visit. I had a fish fry Friday at the R & D Pub so I'm fish fried out for the month year at least.

Ann,

I was looking thru the thread yesterday and came up with this itinerary:

10:00 Widmer's
11:00 Schreiner's

The rest are time tbd:
Tuckers
Kristmas Kringle
Kelly's Country Creamery
Eden Meats/Cafe
Hughes Home Maid Chocolates
Ardy & Ed's

5:00 or 5:30 or 6:00 - Wendt's
We'll need a head count for a reservation.

Ardy & Ed's is closed until next spring.
 
Backtracking from Schreiner's to Tucker's would work, since I have to go that direction anyway to get to the hotel.
 
We need Abe's map skills applied to the itinerary...

Is this the Widmer's Cheese we're going to?
 
If so, we haven't firmed up hotel reservations yet and might reset our sights (sites?) on something closer to Theresa, WI.

Buddy,

Yes, that's the one. Also several 'adult' superstores in that area. Just saying...

If they're 24/7 we don't need to get a hotel room.  Just grab a booth and a sack full of quarters.

Just to throw in my dos centavos, what about this efficiency-oriented schedule:
 
9:30 Widmer's.
Kelley Creamery & Eden Meat Market (both are S/SE of FdL).
10:30-11:00? Tucker's on Main (opens 10:30).
Kristmas Kringle (4 blocks south of Tucker's).
12:30-1:00 Schreiner's for a later lunch.  Maybe call to ask about Saturday's typical busy times?
Other stuff, gradually working northward to Wendt's for dinner.
 
Some backtracking is probably unavoidable but I'm guessing most of us want to avoid crisscrossing the city.
 
Incidentally, for those of you who haven't checked the map yet there's a Gilles Custard just north of Tucker's.

Brad - I trust that you checked hours of operation for the morning stops.

Kelley's is the only real issue as they don't open until 11.  If we want to make it a definite stop we could start at Widmer's closer to 10 and then go to Eden Meats, which would probably take up enough time to put us at Kelley's when the doors are unlocked.
 
Since the afternoon's wide open there's probably enough of a cushion to move everything back 30 minutes or so, but I'm thinking we don't want to have Schreiner's and Wendt's too close together as they're the main dining options for the day.  Plus those who're heading back home at the end of the day probably don't want dinner to get too late.
 
However, Kelley's is open until 8pm if it fits better as a final, post-Wendt's stop.

We're in your capable hands.  Just tell us where to be when and we'll be there.
 
But please tell me before I book my hotel so I can get as close as possible to our starting point.
