You might need to delete all your contact names from your PM list and re-enter them.  Don't know why that works, but that's what I had to do to eliminate some of the problems.

Diva Pfeff, have you returned yet?  Mrs. Chicken and I are thinking of heading over toward the Ft. Atkinson area Sunday afternoon in case there's a need for any recon work.  I already have our dinner location selected but that's certainly not set in stone.

A note of interest to our fellow Contingent members:
 
Mrs. Roadhouse and I have decided the only way we're going to make a 10:30am call is if we go up the day before and get an area hotel room.  So, we will be in The Land of Limburger as early as mid-afternoon on Friday, June 21st.
 
We haven't decided what route we'll take to get up there.  We could go via Milwaukee and stop for dinner with folks in that locale.  Or, we could go via Madison and meet the "608" people for dinner.  OR--if there are enough like minded people in the group, we could all get together in the middle and squeeze an extra meal out of this trip.
 
Thoughts?

I'm in for a Friday night, although Mrs. C may be scheduled to work.  Anyplace from Madison eastward is fine with me...perhaps a fish fry somewhere?

You're the local, so I'd leave the restaurant up to you.  Fish Fry sounds good, though.  Anyone from Beer Town want to come west Friday night?

I'm still deciding where to stay. What places are on the list and what towns are they in?

We've probably been out for fish once in the past 2 or 3 years so I can't recommend any particular place, but I'm always willing to roll the dice and try someplace new.  Maybe Fun Hunters in Whitewater?
 
Alternatively, a couple of years ago USA Today listed Georgio's in Milton on a "50 Best" list if you don't mind pizza.  But I suspect reservations would need to be made soon.

Reservations this early?  Seriously?  You don't even need to make reservations at Burt's a month in advance.  Anyway, the cheese element notwithstanding, I think I'd be more interested in someplace more Wisconsin-centric.  Maybe even another Supper Club; one that is not planned for the tour.
 
In fact, Fun Hunters (aka "Randy's" on their website) was recommended by MilwFoodlovers on one of our previous Roadhouse Bar-B-Que Sauce demo trips.  We actually discovered Saxe's Lone Star on our way to Randy's and opted for that instead.  Never regretted it, but maybe it's time to give Randy's a chance.

P.S. X1, if you're still having problems with the website, you might need to delete all your contacts from your PM list and re-enter them.  It's a PITA, and I don't know why it works, but it does.  If there are still problems, try letting someone know in the "Post Your Bugs and Issues Here" thread.
 
B.
 
p.p.s.  The entire Roadhouse clan will be in Milwaukee, this Sunday, May19th, celebrating birthdays for abe_foreman and Mr. Maki.  No firm time or plan, other than a stop at Kopp's at the end of the day. This won't be a tour, just a one or two stop day.
 
For more info go to abe's or Mrs. Roadhouse's facebook pages.

CNW, I don't know if the entire list has been finalized, but if you look at a map of Jefferson County, you'll see I-94 and State Hwy. 26 intersecting as a sort of nexus point.  I think most of the stops will radiate out from that point, north and south.  The three main towns in the County are Ft. Atkinson, Jefferson, and Watertown, all along Hwy 26.  If you book a hotel in any of those cities you won't be more than about 25 miles from any of the proposed stops.
 
If it makes a difference, the the first stop is Wedl's Hamburgers in Jefferson, with a 10:30am start.  Being the late riser that I am, I'm inclined to stay as close to that starting point as possible.  If I can't find decent hotel, for the price I want, in Jefferson, my next choice will be Ft. Atkinson.
 
Also, looking at the map, I see several State Parks located in Jefferson County.  We're now looking at a slightly earlier start on Friday,  and possible visits to one or more of those parks before checking into our hotel.

We're back.  Sitting in terminal in Philly.
 
It's good to the tour is getting some attention while we were gone. 
 
Buddy - If you point to a location, Bobbi can check her fishfry database.

Just a note...I had two double cheeses and a medium strawberry malt at Wedl's last week. I'm a big eater and that was ample. Fortunate to enough have time to eat them between rain showers on the outside picnic table. Also, there is a GREAT Mexican food truck called Los Agaves (sp) parked in downtown Ft. Atkinson.

Pancho, if you're a big burger eater you might want to check out the Drewburger at The Cold Spring Inn sometime.  And I'm not 100% sure but Los Agaves might be the truck whose success got some brick & mortar establishments in Milton a bit upset.
 
Buddy, if you do wind up staying in Fort or even Whitewater (being a college town it might have better lodging options) I see that Cold Spring offers homemade potato pancakes as part of the Friday fish fry.  We were visiting family in Milton today and we chitchatted about some of the area restaurants but I didn't think to ask about Cold Spring.

Homemade Potato Pancakes are definitely a big draw.  We've got another month before the big day(s).  Any information or reconnaissance you can do is greatly appreciated.  As of now, the plan is to stay only through the end of the tour, Saturday night.  But if there are enough good eating options in the area, and if my schedule allows, we might stay through to Sunday.
 
The plot thickens...

The June work schedule just came out and it looks like I'm booked for the Sunday after the tour.  We're still planning on an early arrival on Friday, but we'll head back to Chicago after the final stop Saturday.
 
Of course, that trip home could include a stop at Kopp's...

I mentioned the pre-tour Friday dinner to Mrs. Chicken and she requested the day off from the Kohl's overlords, so it looks like there'll be 2 of us.  Buddy, figure out where you're going to be staying and we'll work from there to determine our dining venue.

Her posts are showing up twice for me.  I think irisarbor needs to do the contact deletion trick in order to set her Roadfood settings right.  In case you don't know, recent "upgrades" to the site caused widespread problems, including double postings, invisible postings, and non-functioning of the "Posts Since Last Visit" option.
 
One potential solution is to delete all your PM contacts and re-enter them.  For some reason this seems to work in most cases.  If not, try posting in the "Bugs and Issues" thread, or send a PM to an administrator asking for help.

OK, this is too weird- I opened IE-(I usually use chrome) I saw my posts, then I logged in to make a new post, and my posts had dissapeared, along with the newests posts-
I feel like I am in a Twilight Zone of RF'
It's good to know that it is upgraded, however
I guess it's on to bugs and contacts for me...
 
OK- all my contacts were listed twice??
now deleted, and I think that fixed it...who figured that one out, and how?
Just when you think you are part of the technical age......

Hi Elaine!  Good to have you back.
 
Pie Diva & I will be posting an itinerary this weekend. We'll be behind the chicken-wire with Jake & Elwood avoiding the flying bottles.

irisarbor, you must have fixed something because I only see your post once.  Previous posts were duplicated.
 
Is your "Posts since last visit" function working?

See updated itinerary somewhere below.
 
Here is the proposed schedule for June 22.
 
10:30 Wedl's
11:30 Johnson Creek Farmers Market
12:00 Glenn's Market & Brat Stand
1:00 Taqueria Maria
2:00 Zweig's Diner
3:00 Mullens Dairy Bar
4:30 Crawfish Junction or some Supper Club
 
I appreciate any suggestions on timing, order and restaurant selection.  I'll provide a description of the places when I get some time.

30 minutes to hit the JCFM and then travel to Watertown seems a bit tight.  Otherwise a little extra time between Watertown stops might make walking possible, especially if you moved the Mullen's visit to between Glenn's and Taqueria Maria.
 
For a supper club, do you know anything about the Elias Inn on N. 2nd St.?  It seems like the online reviews are generally positive and it wouldn't end the tour with westward travel, since pretty much everybody except me will be heading east at the end of the day.  Plus since it's right there it might allow for a longer day and more time at each stop.  Just a thought.
 
I see that the Brat of the Week at Glenn's will be "buffalo wing".  Sounds interesting.

I do know that Elias inn has a fantastic Fish Fry on Friday. Waiting for Buddy to tell us where he plans on staying June 21 so we know if this place will be our FFF (Friday Fish Fry)

Yikes!  That's a lot of pressure.  I'm leaving for Cleveland today.  The plan was to book our Wisconsin hotel when I got back.  So we may not have that information until next Wednesday, the 12th.  That's still ten days until that Friday night.  But if that's too tight for folks, go ahead and plan around us; we'll figure it out.

P.S. Hoping to see buffetbuster and/or Ralph Melton this weekend.  I'll say "howdy" from The Contingent.
