    Wait a sec...I thought Cheese Days were held every other year, making 2008 the next year for the event.

    Not that it would matter; we've got to go to a dang wedding in Milwaukee that weekend. Of course it is on Saturday and we could always take I-43 west on Sunday...

    So, what's the deal for this year all you folks in the know...Cheese Days or not to Cheese Days, that is the question.

      On the other hand, i just found out, they are having Corn Days in Darien that same weekend, and even closer to Milwaukee on I-43!

      Could be a fun little side trip, no?

          The Cheese Fest Benzee is talking about is in Monroe, NEW YORK. Alas, that's a little too far for a road trip for me.

              It was an outstanding festival. I had an excellent breakfast at a Swiss restaurant (I'm unsure of its name but it's on the same street as Brennan's and Swiss Colony outlet, just about 4 blocks west). This was the Swiss skillet consisting of layers of Kalberwurst, a Swiss sausage not unlike a German veal brat, potato's (RĂ´esti?), Swiss cheese, topped with over easy eggs.

                Hi all-

                I thought I would bump up this thread since Cheese Days 2008 is just around the corner. It will be Sept. 19-21 in Monroe, WI. If anyone is planning on coming to town, I will be working in the information trailer on the square again on Saturday from noon until 3 pm. Hope to see you there!

                  Mr. Maki and I will be there (not sure which day, though) and I'm pretty sure the Roadhouses are going, too. We'll decide as it gets closer and post here. I think Sundays tend to be better for Buddy, but we'll see.

                    Sunday is definitely the only day we can make it. We're hoping to meet up with as many of the Milwaukee contingent as can make it. It would be great if more Illinois Roadfooders would join us that day as well!

                    See you then,

                      I'll have to clear it with Mrs. O first but Sunday might be possible for me or maybe even the both of us. The teenagers will be left at home, and you will thank me for that.

                            With two cheese fests so close together, I think the only certain thing is that NY will be cutting the cheese first!

                                  The problem is that Monroe (and New Glarus) is so very charming probably because it is not near an Interstate. The good thing is that your drive is through some of the most charming parts of Wisconsin. The Swiss settled here precisely because the area reminded them of the cantons back in Switzerland. My Google maps has you going:
                                  1. Take the ramp onto I-94 E ,Entering Wisconsin 218 mi
                                  2. Take exit 92 for US-12 W 0.5 mi
                                  3. Merge onto US-12 E 23.3 mi
                                  4. Turn right at WI-78 7.9 mi
                                  5. Turn left at US-14/WI-78 2.2 mi
                                  6. Turn right at CR-F/Mills St/WI-78, Continue to follow WI-78 10.1 mi
                                  7. At the traffic circle, take the 2nd exit onto N 8th St/WI-92 0.5 mi
                                  8. Turn right at S 8th St/CR-JG, Continue to follow CR-JG 8.9 mi
                                  9. Turn left at CR-A/CR-JG 0.6 mi
                                  10. Turn right at CR-JG 2.7 mi
                                  11. Continue on CR-J 16.5 mi
                                  12. Turn left at WI-81 2.3 mi
                                  13. Continue on WI-69 S 0.6 mi
                                  14. Turn left at 8th St/WI-11-BR/WI-69-BR Continue to follow WI-11-BR/WI-69-BR 0.4 mi
                                  Arrive-Monroe, WI * New Glarus is maybe 15 miles up the road on WI-69
                                  You may want to bring a cooler. There are cheese factories, meat markets, bakeries and cheese seconds outlet stores that you may want to stop at.

                                    Could you possibly be any more obvious?

                                    Ahi, if you don't feel like taking the 2-lanes a reasonable alternative is to take 90 all the way to Janesville and then head west on WI-11. It's more distance but possibly not much more time.

                                    If you do decide to make the trip there's actually a semi-direct route from I-90 that passes right near me, and if I wind up going to Monroe that day I'd be happy to guide.

                                      The time is drawing near; Cheese Days are almost upon us! So, anyone from the Milwaukee contingent planning on making the trip? The Roadhouses and, I'm assuming, the froemans will be making the ride on Sunday, September 21st. Anyone care to meet us there? Time? We would probably get there very late morning/early afternoon. Specific place to meet? Maybe in front of Baumgartner's?

                                      Also, we have spoken many times of the numerous cheese outlet stores in the area. The following is an excerpt from a posting at LTHForum naming two places we have not yet visited...
                                      quote:
                                      "In the area, you have to take advantage of a couple of cheese shops. First, the outlet attached to Roth Kase (657 Second) has amazing prices on their stuff as well as other Wisconsin cheeses. The prices are at least 40% of what you will pay in the Chicago area. The Roth Kase Private Reserve is especially worth getting your hands on. Note, the store is a few miles north of downtown Monroe.

                                      Then, there is the Maple Leaf Coop outlet about ten miles east of Monroe in the town of Judea (W2616 Hwy 11-81). Attached to a gas station for true Wisconsin glory. Maple Leaf Coop cheddar has won many awards, and it is that good. It is also not as easy to find as some of the other cheeses you will find at Roth Kase. Do stop here too."


                                      So, who's up for a day trip? Let's start talking people, so we don't miss an opportunity to get together. Dinner back in Milwaukee, followed by Kopp's? I know if I throw that hook out there someone will bite.

                                      Buddy

                                        I read the title and though it was Monroe, WA. Was like - COOL! But then realized it was WI.

                                          Mrs MFL, X1, myself and probably my mom in Madison will be there on SATURDAY the 20th. Kirsby, what hours are you working? Is it the information booth on the SW corner of the square? I know of one other SE WI Roadfooder family trying to work out the logistics of a Saturday meet-up. If all goes well, we are making a bakery and meat market(s) stop in New Glarus first.

                                            Hi all-

                                            I will be around both days. I'm working the information booth on the SW corner of the square on Saturday, noon to 3. I'll probably be wearing my Swiss dress After that I will probably head down to the brewery for the Blues Fest for a while at least.

                                            Sunday I can meet anyone at any time. It might be good to meet somewhere away from the square since the parade will be going on. I was thinking the Rathskeller at the Turner Hall would be a good place, away from the crowds. Plus it is a cool, historic Swiss environment. Let me know how that sounds, if you need directions, and what time you think you'll be there. See you all this weekend!

                                            -Kris

                                              The Rathskeller sounds fine as a meeting point. We'll have a better handle on time as we get towards the end of the week, noon-12:30 is a pretty good likelihood.

                                              MFL, sorry we'll miss you on Sunday. Please leave us a few small blocks of bargain cheese at the outlet stores.

                                              Anyone else up for the trip on Sunday?

                                                We are heading up to Baraboo,WI friday to0 see one of the grandbabies do something in a church pageant Sunday. If possible I will get the tribe to visit Monroe on Saturday. Watch for the May, his wife and some kids and grandkids asking about "Kris" at the booth. Sunday is out for us as we have obligations to the family all day.
                                                We will look to say hello Saturday fairly early (noonish).

                                                  I had hoped to be able to go but that's not possible now; one of my kids has a birthday on Monday so we're getting together on Sunday with a few family members. And I've already committed to play in a charity golf outing on Saturday.

                                                    Really? Golf vs. Cheese, and golf wins???

                                                        Hey, I'll try anything to lower my score!

                                                        Buddy, if it makes you feel any better I'll try to track down a good bar burger after golf.

                                                          Hi all-

                                                          I will be leaving work in about an hour and heading down to Monroe for the majority of the weekend. I just thought I would recap what my understanding is:

                                                          MFL and contingent, and Al - I hope to see you at some point during my stint at the info booth on Saturday. I will be the younger of the two working there and will be wearing my red Swiss dress - you can't miss me! There is a possibility of meeting up again after my shift is done as well.

                                                          Buddy, Abe, et al - I will plan on being at the Rathskeller at the Turner Hall on Sunday between noon and 12:30. Not sure what I'll be wearing yet, probably some form of Cheese Days shirt. I may bring a friend along to keep me company and we'll probably be sitting at the bar. I'll try to keep an eye out for anyone who walks in.

                                                          I am so looking forward to this weekend. I hope to meet up with as many of you as possible!

                                                            Kris,

                                                            We'll do our best to be there on time. Take a look at the Roadhouse Bar-B-Que Sauce Summer Tour, 2008 thread and you will find numerous pictures of me, having dinner with numerous other Roadfooders, making identification just a little easier.

                                                            See you Sunday,
