CAUTION - THE STOPS HAVE CHANGED. CHECK YOUR GPS.
Oops. Watertown's Art Festival was last week.
Sun Prairie for Strawberries anyone?
Strike two - they only run until 3:00. An afternoon of slotcar racing? No, this ain't BIG TIME
like the swells in Duh's Plaines.
Prior to the official tour, some of you may meet in Ft. Atkinson for the Fort Farmers Market
(located 1 block off of South Main Street just across the street from the Fort Atkinson Post Office) and a possible breakfast at Scottie's Eat-Mor
(1311 Madison Ave, Fort Atkinson). Contact Buddy for a stop at Scottie's, but get there very, very early (like that is an option with Mr. Roadhouse). Official Tour 10:30 Wedl's Hamburger Stand & Ice Cream Parlor,
200 E Racine St, Jefferson
We'll get a start a World renowned hamburger stand. Outdoor seating and tasty burgers and ice cream, too. We may never leave. 12:00 Glenn's Market & Catering,
722 W Main St,Watertown
Glenn's is a first rate full service meat market, with some of my favorite brats and bacon in the state. Besides the fresh meats, they also have a huge frozen meat selection with all of their bratwurst varieties and Mexican specialties, too. Bring a cooler to fill here.
On Saturdays, Glenn's operates a charity brat stand offering their Sheboygan-style brats and a different specialty brat each week. On the 22nd it will be ... NO WAY
, that can't be a brat! 1:00 Taqueria Maria
, 311 S 1st St, Watertown
My daughter, Pippett, swears by their quesadillas and insisted we stop here. 2:00 Mullens Dairy Bar,
212 W. Main Street, Watertown
Time for a break from food, ice cream sundaes don't count. Mullens is a classic, how did Clifford miss it? 2:30 Zweig's Grill
, 904 E Main St, Watertown, WI
Fried pickles and an architectural gem. Zweig's is tiny, if we take a running start, The Contingent
may fit inside. 3:30 Big Change Here - Baked Goods Scavenger Hurt Homestyle Bakery,
411 East Main Street, Watertown (920) 206-9202 or Upper Krust Pie Shop,
1300 Memorial Dr, Watertown (920) 206-9202 or Sweet Talkin' Treats
, 108 S. 3rd Street,Watertown (920) 342-3969 or Somewhere else
The Pine Cone in Johnson Creek is a possibility.
After Zweig's, we will scatter to different bakeries and return with our purchases to Riverside Park
to share and compare. Archie & Jughead may even show up.
We may have to add a non-food time eater to the tour. Anyone for a tour of Octogon House or a $3.00 first run movie? 5:30 or later
An executive decision was made at dinner tonight to end the day at Saxes Lonestar
(N41 Twinkling Star Rd, Whitewater, WI, (262) 473-9899). The supper club is highly recommended by Buddy, gives us an eating break, and is in the direction of home for the folks from Illinois.
See you tomorrow at Wedl's.
