I forget, which part of Ireland do the McNowaks come from?

Suicidal, are you then?
 
You're not wrong about the Irish Plague that strikes this town every March 17th, and I'm not talkin' about the spuds.  It's the St. Paddy's Day Virus that turns the people of Chicago into a bunch of Blarney Stone kissing eejits.  No worries, this nice Jewish boy (and his Irish wife) has already made an appearance this week at the Irish Heritage Center and I may end up at the Galway Arms for a bit of the craic myself tonight.
 
BTW, what are those odd looking hieroglyphics in your post?  Some sort of ancient Irish runes?
 
Sláinte!

Open til 10 I see.  Maybe I'll pick up a dozen for the boys in the band at the pub.  Or just eat them all myself.  We'll see what kind of mood I'm in.

.......we get in late Friday night...................


Coaches Pub and Grill
The kitchen closes Friday at 11pm;  perhaps this might interest you.  It's a ten minute drive at most from the airport.
This is a great suggestion!  We land at 10:05 and the original plan was to head straight to Kopp's before they close at 11:00.  If we do Coaches Pub, we should still be able to hit Leon's afterwards instead, since they don't close until midnight.


Much appreciated Mike!

Nina and I regret to inform you that we will be unable to attend breakfast on Sunday morning, as we will be attending the funeral of close friend.

Mark & Nina,
Very sorry to hear about your loss.
 
On a happier note, we can add abe_froeman and Mr. Maki to the guest list at Polonez.

My Dublin Eggs Benedict was Bomb-dot-com(R) tasty. Skipping the pre-breakfast breakfast helped immensely in my enjoyment (Thank you Gregg'n'Danny for not coming to this event and forcing me to eat too much).
 
Pie Diva's experiment in crisp-flavoured (that's chips to you Americans) pies was an overwhelming overdose of Flavortown(R).
 
The company was even better (Thanks again to Gregg'n'Danny for staying home and to wanderingjew for attending in spirit).

Just a few notes on the afternoon session with buffetbuster and his lovely bride.  We met up aroud 2:30 at Polonez for a fabulous Polish dinner.  bb got his own sampler plate while Mariton, ChiBears15, abe_froeman, Mr. Maki, and the wife and I split a Cabbage Roll Dinner, a Polish Sausage Dinner, and a pile of excellent Pierogis.
 
Among the sides were a pair of delicious crepe thin Potato Pancakes.  When we ordered, the waitress asked if we wanted them served with sour cream, apple sauce, or maple syrup.  This was a new one on me, so throwing all caution to the wind I committed to the syrup.  And whaddaya know; the savory potato flavor worked really well with the sweetness of the maple.
 
After Polonez we worked our way west to Kopp's.  The majority of the group went with Cherry Amaretto cones while Mr. Maki and I split the Tiramisu Sundae of the Month.
 
The most intriguing part of the day came on the way home when we made a side trip to Iron Grate BBQ to grab some carryout.  I picked up a pound (four bones) of the Milwaukee Ribs along with sides of their house made Grits and Greens.  I sampled both sides and fell in love with them.  The Grits were incredibly flavorful and rich.  When asked, they insisted there was no cheese in the recipe, so the deep and intense flavor must have been magically induced.  Likewise with the Greens.  They say they're a mix of Collards and Mustard Greens which is a great start.  But these had a really unique flavor that played on a hint of sweet and tangy in the Pot Likker.
 
As an added bonus they gave me samples of the house made Pastrami (limited availability through St. Pat's weekend) and their Brisket.  Both were moist, tender and flavorful.  The Pastrami was especially noteworthy for its intense seasoning without going overboard on the salt.
 
Iron Grate absolutely needs to be the focus of a future Contingent visit.  Maybe get a dozen or more of us in the dining room so we can order the entire menu and sample the whole slate.
 
It was great seeing our Pittsburgh pals.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
 
Buddy
 
P.S. ChiBears15 took an entire album's worth of pictures which I'm sure we'll all see very soon...

We had a great weekend in Milwaukee.  Still one of my favorite cities and I wish it was easier for us to get to.
 
On Sunday morning, Jeff and Bobbi, Mike and Beth were nice enough to join us at McBob's for the best corned beef hash on earth. 

Bobbi also baked the unusual salt and vinegar pie,

topped with brittle.  It reminded me of a chess pie and was delicious!
 
Meanwhile, Danny had arrived in town, so we drove over to Leon's to meet him for strawberry frozen custard.

 
After touring the grand Pabst Mansion, next up was Polonez.  Danny met us again, along with Jeff, Suzie, Lucy and Pete, who were kind enough to drive up from Chicago after their family obligations.    I ordered the Polish platter,

while the other six split four entrees.  This was my second visit to Polonez and I thought the food was much better this time.
 
From there, it was a quick stop at Kopp's,

before we had to head off to the airport.
 
Thanks again to all who joined us.  It was wonderful to see everyone!

Order a spicy Bloody from McBob's and even the pickle has a bite. My Guinness chaser cooled the palate. Most bars in Milwaukee offer a chaser (small glass of beer) with your Bloody Mary or Maria.
 
 
McBob's Corned Beef Hash had large chunks of potatoes and corned beef. And that is bacon bread on the platter.McBobsCornedBeefHashWithBaconBread.jpg

Cherry Amaretto Cheesecake.  Sorry, didn't mean to intrude on a private internet conversation.

I was thinking back to the days when buffetbuster was young(er), naive, single, and impressionable. So I did a search for his classic four breakfasts before 11:00 thread, not realizing that this was his first time ever at McBob's and first time eating their corned beef hash. This occurred just over ten years ago.
 
Read it again. This never gets old. It is probably my favorite thing I've ever read on Roadfood.com.

I did all that in one weekend?  Man, I am really slacking nowadays.
 
Thanks for posting that JRPfeff.  It brings back great memories, including some places that are long gone.
