So work is interfering with my posting activities....
We really enjoyed our weekend!
We were sorry also to miss the opporunity to say a proper good bye and happy trails to Yellodeere and the Mrs., and hope we see you at more events soon.
As some of you know we started the weekend a day early in Montello at the Moosefest-
On the way we saw a pink elephant and knew that any weekend that starts with a pink elepahnt is going to be good...
In Montello we had an amazing ribeye steak sandwich for $3.50 at the Granit Falls Supper club:
And how can you go to a moosefest and not buy a moose hat?
The festival featured helicopter rides- it was very cool to see one so close up.
Montello used to quarry granite, and they have converted the old quarry to a waterfall park- it's very pretty-
But after enough silliness, it was time to head to Madison.
As luck would have it we were at the same hotel as yellodeere and wife, and after a nice relaxing and refreshing hot tub soak we all went to Erins Snug for dinner. I couldn't manage any pix because the light were very dim, and I didn't want to use the flash. The yellodeere had steak and shrimp which they really enjoyed. Hubs had a shepards pie, I really enjoyed a monster of a loaded baked potato, keeping it light in anticipation of the big day ahead.
We met up with everyone at Pan & Pan- enjoyed the carnitas taco that has been pictured before as well as a yummy frosty horchata drink.
Rolled on to State street where this sign caught my eye (and heart)
Hubs and I shared a slice of Ians mac n cheese pizza
I'm not usually a big pizza fan, but I really liked this one, reminded me of a NY slice, with the puffy outer edge, a very comfort foody feeling YUM.
I joined Bob and Brad at Nicks for a frosty brew and a "shatteringly crisp" chicken wing.
The perfect morsel.
After a leisurely stroll down the rest of State we ended up at the daily scoop where lots of folks were waiting for an ice cream fix
Mine was pineapple cake and mocha machiatto- (have I mentioned Ice cream is my weak point?)
We went thru the old time Rathskeller to eat out on the beautiful terrace facing the lake
Here the outside of the Rathskeller
Then as we strolled bak to the cars we passed some boys playing
On to Fat Jacks for BBQ and as we arrived what do we see but a Cheetos car! You don't see that everyday!
Here is slim Frank going into Fat Jacks (tee hee)
Frank had the BBQ chicken special- it was very good
I had the spare ribs which I though were nice and peppery and very respectable for restaurant BBQ.
On our drive home we passed another interesting food-themed car...
And then somehow right around bluemound road, we ended up here for take out.....
(have I mentioned ice cream is my weak point?)
All in all a wonderful fun weekend.
Thanks so much to JRPfeff for all the advance legwork and planning.
Can't wait for the next get together!
