I had the Schwai's bacon for breakfast and the Usinger's liverwurst for lunch....living large!

It all sounds so great (but the company was what we really missed)- sorry we couldn't make it up
We got way-laid by a post-poned Eagle project and a bad back
..and the dog ate my homework
The drive was too much to contemplate by 3:30 PM
next time....

I'm game for a return trip (well, maybe somewhat shorter) any free weekend. (Wait, I'm retired. Any free weekday would work). We actually ran out of time and missed the Old Wisconsin Outlet (TM'd by the time we arrived) and pretty much every stop in Port Washington. This forced us to go to New Port Shores and drown our sorrow with 12 year old bourbon. They were having a special on it where we got 3 fingers for something like $5.25. God, I love Port!
After that we rolled into Milwaukee and found room for Vietnamese vittles at Pho Hai Tuyet. I have a man crush on this place's take on a banh mi sandwich so I'll leave it to others as to how enjoyable it was. I had a pho that had pretty much the kitchen sink in it and I loved it Saturday and again at breakfast the next morning.

 
 
 


I had a BLT using Schwai's bacon today at lunch and I guess I'm going to return as it was fantastic.

Enough shopping...let's get some lunch!

 

 

 

 
X1's homestyle burger.

 
Nina's (Mrs. CSD) openface turkey sandwich.

 
I ordered a 1/4 broasted chicken but the server misheard me and wrote 1/2.  No complaints, though; it was very crunchy and juicy.  And yes, that's butter on the beans.  Midway believes in butter.

 
The potatoes and gravy were excellent.

 
 
More shopping.  I bought a package of brats and a jar of very good horseradish mustard.

 
 
JRPfeff reported that City Bakery was pretty much sold out of everything so I didn't bother going inside.

 
Instead I checked out the car show across the street.

 
 
The final Sheboygan stop was Gosse's but I made a slight detour to TJ's Twisted Chicken.

 
I ran into Buddy in Gosse's parking lot and he was kind enough to hold the TJ's bag and styro box open for me, but demanded some chicken in return.  What a shakedown artist!  I thought this was even better than the chicken at Midway. 

 
 

 
Gosse's loves butter, too...maybe even more than Midway.  The brats are actually Johnsonville (?!?) but it's the preparation that makes the difference.

 
Pork chop sandwich.

 
EricPfeff ordered what looked like a fried 1/4 potato.

 
IIRC this was the steak sandwich.

 
A very buttery burger.

 
I guess some people were excited by this but I fail to see why.

Thanks so much for posting those pictures and bringing back the good memories.  All the feels   And thanks again MFL for organizing the trip.
 
On the day I had originally intended to get some of those tortes to take home, but then didn't bother.   I regretted it the next day (once I was able to eat again hehe).
 
The Spoils of Sheyboygan Picnic I had the following Saturday was a big hit.  Not a single brat/sausage was left over!

R.I.P. the Homestyle Burger at Midway Eat. They have new management and did not have a clue when we asked for one. The regular cheeseburger was fastfood quality.
 
We'll always have our memories, and Gosse's.

Bastards.
 
We should make a return visit to Sheboygan next year.  Some good possibilities had to be cut from the 2014 list and I think we owe them equal time.

Perhaps we rent a school bus and make it a two day camp out! 
Re:Sheboygan aka Sheeptown in Spring 2015/09/07 17:09:45
Not a bad idea...well, the part about making it 2 days.  The school bus?  Not so much.
 
Show up Friday night for fish, do the heavy lifting Saturday, and wrap it up with brunch/lunch Sunday before heading home.  JRP gets to organize this as he's been to Sheboygan more than the rest of us.
 
I'm pretty sure I could convince the wife to spend a couple of nights in Herb's town.

Since I missed this meet up-I would love if another one was organized. I lived in Sheboygan for 5 years, and there are some gems. Word to the wise-if looking for a supper club, skip Rupps. It wasn't very good when we ate there.
 And Woodlake Market in Kohler-just 10 minutes west of Sheboygan, has some really neat specialty foods, a good butcher, as well. At least when I worked there...

You sure about that?

Kohler has nothing to do with Herb. The factories are there. They make generators & whatnot. My great grandfather and his father both worked there, and were both in the retirees club.

Brunch at the American Club is $30/head and definitely NOT Roadfood. But worth it to go at least once. Creme. Brulee. French. Toast.
Re:Sheboygan aka Sheeptown in Spring 2015/09/08 08:43:45
Okay, the job's yours.  Jim's going to be really disappointed, though.
 
That's "Herb" as in "Herbert V. Kohler, Jr." and his family's had just a little bit of influence on the Sheboygan area.

Have there been any other noticeable changes to the menu?  Maybe the addition of some grown-up mac & cheese?

I doubt we're going to all fit in my grandparent's apartment. Or my aunt and uncle's house. Or my other aunt and uncle's house. Or my other aunt and uncle's house. Lol

SD - Did you say Italian?
 
Fonduta al Forno.  Wood-fired terra cotta filled with melted mozzarella, smoked mozzarella, oregano and San Marzano tomatoes. Topped with slices of prosciutto di Parma.
 
It almost made us forget the true Neopolitan pizza at Il Ritrovo PIzza.

Wrong side of the family. Looks yummy!!!!!

Have you guys been to Duke of...uh...Devon? Right on the lake. British pub style food, which includes canned peas. But the fish and chips were great.

Aimee- never been there, but when I lived there, some really good little places we frequented. Neat story-when Sheboygan re-did the lakefront, a lumber ship was found in the bay, and it was reconstructed on land. When my uncle Kelly came to visit-his eyes widened like I have never seen. That ship was the lumber ship his grandfather used to send wood over to Wisconsin from Michigan. Unbelievable moment.
Re:Sheboygan aka Sheeptown in Spring 2015/09/08 20:11:35
Great story, Ann!
 
Judging by Google Maps there are enough places on 8th Street alone to make for a pretty full day.  Start at the southern end at Bill's Corner Cafe and head north!
