R.I.P. 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 Coerpe
r 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.
