Abe - Might make sense to alter title to October 4th for easier reference - CTD




I agree, but I don't know how.

I'm still laid up with a broken leg so unfortunately I'll be missing this one.   Guess I'll be sucking cider and PH stuffed crust vicariously hehe. I recall Elegant Farmer being stupid-crowded on weekends in Oct. Hope that's not the case for you guys.
 
One of my favorite local orchards is Nieman Orchards. Haven't been there in a couple years but they have many more than supermarket common varieties of apples.

It looks like it's a go for Sunday for the Two Quijotes and Ann Peeples.
 
The first stop is Gus's Drive-in at 12:30, right?
 
quijote
 
 
 
abe_froeman
Yes, as of now, that is the plan.
 
Here's who I have in my head count:
Myself & Mr. Maki- 2
Buddy- flying solo
CTD- 1
ChiBears15- 1
JRPfeff- 2
Stricken- 1
MFL- 1? LD's only
 
The Quixotes, Ann, and Gyp are all tentative, correct? ScreamingChicken is now tentative.
 
X1 and CSD have previous engagements that day.
 
I'll send a message out to irisarbor and cjucoder....anyone else I'm missing?

Sorry...we'll miss you!  I'll have an extra bite for you, well maybe an extra, extra bite since I usually have an extra bite on my own!

12:30pm-1:00pm: Gus's Drive-In (we'll tell Buddy 11:00am),
1:45pm: The Elegant Farmer for apple picking, trolley riding, and whatever other autumn activities they have (last train ride is at 2:00, so anyone doing that needs to be there by then.  These rides are first come, first served- no advance tickets.)
5:15pm: LD's BBQ
7:00pm: J. Lauber's Old Fashioned Ice Cream in East Troy: "Visit Lauber's and take a step back in time.... a 4-page menu of delicious ice cream treats, including 20 flavors of malteds, awaits you in this authentic 1920s ice cream parlor. A huge candy counter, a 78 RPM jukebox and so much more!"

For those of you who might be interested in breakfast in East Troy, 2894 On Main looks interesting.
 
I've never been there so I can't say anything one way or another.  Abe just doesn't have enough food stops on the itinerary.

That does look really cute.  Too bad I'm going to be waiting on Buddy to get going in the morning, otherwise I'd be there.  Maybe if he sleeps in my car the night before.....

Au contraire, mon ami (French for, "Hold up a second there, bub!"), the ChiTownDiner, ChiBears15 and I will be leaving a trail of testosterone in our wake as we speed up I-94 into the land of Cheeseheads.  I thought about catching a ride with abe_froeman (seeing as how she's my kid and all), but then I thought it might be nice to spend the day in the company of men for a change (I was surrounded for 20+ years by abe, her non-Roadfood sister, and Mrs. Roadhouse.  The only other males in our house were a succession of squirrely cats who were kind enough to allow us to feed them, provide lodging, and clean up their poop).  Plus I get to take a nap in the back seat while CTD drives.
 
So go to your "cute" little diner daughter o' mine.  We'll be nibbling on Maple Glazed Apple Cider Donuts, in a manly fashion, as we head north.  See you at Gus' Diner.
 
XOXO
Buddy

Care to make a small wager?

 
Sure, if the Cubs win Wednesday I'll buy you something on the next Contigent outing that we're both at.
 
...vs. a team with NO postseason games....

 
Yep, that'd be the Brewers. Versus the Cubs. Just wanted to make sure everyone knew who was playing.
 
So my friend is making prime rib on the grill for our pregame tailgate so I think I'm all in for the game. I had a gift certificate for tickets that I needed to use and this was the only game that worked out for me.

Dude, you've got ChiBears15 who wisely gave up his Sunday game day rituals in favor of a more worthwhile and rewarding activity.

Just got a note from Ann that she's ill and won't be going. Also, Quixote #2 is supposed to help with a lakefront marathon water station for most of the day, so he won't be there.  But I'm still planning on it and looking forward to it. It should be a nice, brisk autumn day and a good time to buy a Pumpkin.

Re-cap of the itinerary as it stands now:
 
12:30pm-1:00pm: Gus's Drive-In (we'll tell Buddy 11:00am),

Myself & Mr. Maki- 2
Buddy- flying solo
CTD- 1
ChiBears15- 1
JRPfeff- 2
MFL- 1? LD's only

The Quixotes- 2
Ann- 1

Gyp and ScreamingChicken are still on the tentative list.  

X1 and CSD have previous engagements that day.  Cjucoder is on the mend.  Haven't heard from irisarbor yet.

Is that it?

I was wondering if LD's took reservations...then I discovered they're in a BP gas station.  So I'm guessing not.

Do you already have a parking pass? I have an extra preferred pass if you need one and we can somehow meet.
