The big Cheese Days weekend is coming up quickly!  We've scrapped our plans to spend the entire weekend in south central Wisconsin and will only be in Monroe this Sunday the 18th.  I believe the ScreamingChickens will be there the same day, although for some reason they won't get there until 5:15 (finally discovered the source of the joke). 

5:15 is correct...if you mean 5:15am Saturday to be first in line for cheese curds!!
 
I know this is a long shot, but by any chance are you going arrive around the Sunday opening time of 9am?  Maybe driving up Saturday afternoon/evening might not be a bad idea?
 
Mrs. C has dogsitting duty Saturday but I might check out Cheese Days on my own for a few hours.

Unfortunately, I'm working Saturday until 10pm, so Sunday will be our only option.  The plan is to leave around 11am, arriving in Monroe 1:30-2pm.  We'll stay till 5 or 6pm, then head home with a stop for Greasy CheeseBurgers.

I just returned from Monroe and judging by the number of people already there at 9:30am, tomorrow's going to be a very busy day.  And with the current forecast for sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s I wouldn't be surprised if the single-day attendance record is threatened.
 
I watched 2 preteen girls take "The Limburger Challenge"* and their reactions were quite entertaining.
 
Cheese curds, corn dogs, and beer: the true breakfast of champions!
 
Buddy, I snagged 4 cheese curd tickets so you won't have to wait in the ticket line tomorrow.  They're yours for $17.50 apiece.
 
And now I'm going to take a nap.
 
* For $2 you get a slice of Limburger cheese between 2 slices of cocktail rye, with onion and mustard available.  An extra $1 adds braunschweiger.  And you get an individually-wrapped wintergreen or pep-o-mint Lifesaver for afterward.

I've taken the Limburger Challenge many times and always beat the odds.  Frankly, I don't know what the big deal is.  Limburger is a little stinky up front, but once it's in your mouth and the full flavor comes through, it's a very enjoyable experience.
 
$17.50 per Cheese Curd ticket seems like a reasonable price to pay if you avoid the line to get them.
 
My real hope is that the owner of the local bodega has repaired his Al Pastor Taco Cart and is out hawking his wares.
 
If you went today, does that mean we won't see you on Sunday?

Speaking of bodegas, the Hispanic market we checked out 2 years ago has either moved or closed as there are "For Rent" signs in the window.  I didn't see any food carts while I was there this morning but it's certainly possible some showed up later.
 
I don't have anything scheduled for tomorrow so I'll probably show up.  My employer has issued me a fancy new iPhone 6 so shoot me a text or call when you're about an hour away.

I'll be pumping fresh electricity into my cellphone battery tonight so we can communicate tomorrow.
 
Very disappointing to hear about the absent bodega.  The Al Pastor Tacos were a tasty counterpoint to all the cheese and German food dominating the landscape.

Even though GCCD is still 10 months away it's not too early to start planning.  Out-of-towners looking to stay overnight might want to arrange lodging very soon.

Wouldn't matter; somebody would just mess with the results.

Lots of good entertainment, but I highly recommend "The Jimmys" on the Saturday September 17th Minhas Stage.
Just an exceptional band. One more bit of good news, Doors Open Milwaukee is scheduled for Sept. 22 (my birthday) and 23 so it won't interfere.

Took the words right out of my mouth.
 
Thanks MFL for that info.  We usually go on Sunday, but if the work schedule allows, maybe we'll change things up this year.
 
Anybody gonna try to work up a tour around the Open Doors Milwaukee event?  Might be a good day to tackle some Tacos...

Re: Come to Cheese Days in Monroe! 2018/06/10 09:58:16 (permalink)
Milwaukee's fine daily newspaper offers a list of 6 food festivals that offer a glimpse of Wisconsin specialties and local culture. Included on the list is GREEN COUNTY CHEESE DAYS. ("You don't have to call me ScreamingChicken, you can call me Wedgie.")

We are targeting CEDARBURG STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL, Sun Prairie's SWEET CORN FESTIVAL, and possibly Sheboygan's BRAT DAYS & Seymour's BURGER FEST. We are likely to follow the stop in Cedarburg with dinner at Newport Shores (the Entertainment coupon is still honored in June).

Any of these events sound Contingent-able?

June is booked for us, so the Strawberry Festival is out.  The rest take place in August when I should have some time available, although the dates listed on the Sweet Corn Festival's site are from 2016, so who knows.  Don't forget, Irish Fest and our annual visit to Fred's Bar fall in August too.

Last visit to the Sun Prairie Sweet Corn Festival found beer drinkers locked up in a cage so as not to taint any non-drinker that might be tempted to start on the road to perdition. Brat Days serves only Johnsonville products, no Miesfield's to be found. Seymour's was perhaps most maddening. You were charged $5 to get in which then allowed you to buy some hamburgers. If you were a local and had little children, I'm sure it would be worth it.
Caveat Emptor.
