R.I.P. Ted Coerper

Ted Coerper, the former owner of the famed Coerper's Five O'clock Club in Milwaukee, has passed at age 83.
For years this was where you went when you wanted a great steak in Milwaukee. The place was often
filled with athletes and coaches and what appeared to this untrained eye, bookies. Here's his obit, http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/jsonline/obituary.aspx?n=theodore-e-coerper-ted&pid=187299789
This picture was taken from the internet as my Coerper pictures are in some shoe box. Age 21 and I could do the 32
oz. Prime Porterhouse, along with a football sized potato (Ted told me 2 out of 3 potatoes weren't big enough), and with
a good amount of the huge salad bowl that was served along with 4 home made dressings, a loaf of sourdough bread and the 1/2 lb. of butter which each table got.

    I would hope the post-funeral reception features beef...anything else wouldn't seem appropriate.
