Glad to see everyone, pretty much on the train, for Oct 21st or so......lets do it!!!
I think a Bayview tour would be awesome......lived there for years when all was cool.The area has had a great re-birth.

    Annie,
    Just gonna stick my nose in here for a sec and then butt out.
     
    While I prefer a Sunday tour, most of them take place on Saturdays because some of the places we want to visit are closed on Sundays.  It might be wise to leave the specific day open until you get a firm list of places you want to lead the tour.  The Doodle Poll shows both the 20th and 21st clear for most of us.  Once you're sure everything will be open and able to accommodate the group on a particular day, then set the day in stone.
     
    You've got some good ideas of your own, plus good suggestions from stricken_detective and chicagostyledog.  Narrow down the list as soon as possible, make sure those places are open on the days you want to set the tour, then decide if Saturday or Sunday will work best. 
     
    Just my thoughts.  If I'm in town, I'll do my best to be there any day you pick.
     
    Buddy

      The Packers play at noon on 10/21.  It is not a big rival (just the Rams), but that will still be a show stopper for some Contingent members.

        Saturday works, as well. i didnt realize the 21st was a Sunday when I posted.....I will be working on calling the Bayview places people suggested, and will try and nail this down in the next couple of weeks.

          Sorry for my absence, guys. Going through some work drama that ended this week *whew* Annie, I'm going to keep editing this post, along with my research. LOVE the idea of Groppi's.

          I was thinking, if we start in Bay View, we can zip to Dr Dawg's, then make our way back to Bay View for dinner.  Each name of the restaurant can be clicked to see a menu.
           
          Honeypie!!!
          2643 S Kinnickinnic Ave  Milwaukee, WI 53207
           
          Then a little shopping, and maybe some more brunch. lol
          1441 E Russell Ave  Milwaukee, WI 53207
           
          Then some GREEN RIVER um, LUNCH, in Glendale.
          6969 N Port Washington Rd  Glendale, WI 53217
           
          Then: Lakefront Brewery Tour
          1872 N Commerce Street  Milwaukee, WI 53212
          Saturday, October 20          
          11:00am                    11:25am                11:50am                             
          12:15pm                    12:40pm                12:40pm
          1:05pm                        1:30pm                  1:55pm  
          2:20pm                        2:45pm                  3:10pm 
          Cost for the Brewery Tour is $7 and includes:  a Souvenir Pint Glass, & four 6oz pours of beer. Tours that start before 4pm also include a coupon for 1 free beer, before 6pm, at any of these locations:  Bar Louie, Brocach, Champion's Pub, G-Daddy's BBC, The Garage/Balzac, Hosed on Brady, Hybrid Lounge, Karma Bar & Grill, Milwaukee Brat House, Motor @ Harley Davidson, Nomad,  Stubby's, The Tracks, Wicked Hop, & Wolski's Tavern. 
          Of these ^^ choices, I would choose
          The Wicked Hop.
          345 North Broadway  Milwaukee, WI 53202
           
          Next:  a tapas bar: Ginger
          235 S 2nd St  Milwaukee, WI 53204

          On to our dinner stop: Riviera Maya
          2258 S Kinnickinnic Ave  Milwaukee, WI 53207
           
          And finally, dessert at a new place: Babe's Ice Cream
          2264 S Kinnickinnic Ave  Milwaukee, WI 53207

          Here is a map of the festivities.

          The only choice above I'm not wild about is the Brewery Tour. At least with the Sprecher's tour, they had soda. For someone who can't have alcohol, a brewery tour seems like a waste of time that could be better spent elsewhere. (The boat tour would've been fun because it's on a boat. But 3 hours on a boat to see 2 breweries no one wants to see just to wait for the one you guys wanted to see wasn't appealing either.) Not to mention I grew up here, "This is how we make beer" just isn't as fascinating since you can drive past Marquette & *not* smell the yeast in the air now. I realize I'm in the minority, though. The other thing is, if we do a Brady Street Tour next spring, it makes more sense to add the Brewery Tour in at that time, logistically.

          So here is what I need from you, Contingent & future Contingent members:
          Headcount
          Brewery Tour: Spring Tour for sure??

            Aimee, This is shaping up really nicely. I would be more inclined to do a brewery tour in spring, but maybe if some people want to do the tour this time around, they can break off for a couple of hours while other folks do something else nearby. We can regroup after the tour and proceed to the next stop. My guess is that if we do the brewery tour, either Wicked Hop or Ginger will have to get cut due to time constraints. But if we don't do the tour, we should have ample time for them.
             
            Also, we may consider saving Dr. Dawg for the spring tour, if we wind up not doing the brewery visits and if all of our other stops are in the Bayview area. But I don't mind going, either--I tried their Niman Ranch burger recently, and it was quite delectable.
             
            BTW, for a future tour--maybe the spring tour?-- we may want to visit Growing Power:

              I'm glad you brought that up, John. As much as I want to do Dr Dawg's, (GREEN RIVER)  I think if we keep the tour in Bay View, it will cut down on gas money spent, and we aren't running around trying to get to all those places.
               
              Not to mention, next Spring's tour is already half-planned. Annie can pick out the stops on Brady Street & we're done! You're welcome!!!
               
              Amended Tour Map!
               
              I think this way, if there is other cool stuff going on in Bay View, we will be able to squeeze it in. WE can also push back the start time because 9AM, even in my own city, is a little...how do you say...AMBITIOUS!!!...for me.

                What kind of tour is half-planned for next spring? If it's in April or the last two-thirds of May, I should be able to make it ( early May is the annual spring trip to the Tarheel State. )

                  Aimee, that sounds good. For a non-food stop we can all head to the Casino.... okay, maybe not. Perhaps a tour of St. Josaphat's Basilica or some other site around there? Maybe we can get a tour of Klement's Sausage plant!

                    Bob, a new thread has been created. 
                    John, really? Leave it to you to mention the Klement's Sausage Factory Tour? Do they sell t shirts that say I LOVE SAUSAGE or better yet, SAUSAGE FEST?
                     
                    And like JRPfeff pointed out, we really could do an entire tour on Layton Avenue all by itself. There's also that big Mexican grocery store that sells the soda with real sugar & Cheetos con limon (don't you judge me, Paul Blart). I think putting less "official" stops out there leaves more time for travel, relaxing, enjoying each other's company, and fitting in new finds along the way. I know we're all excited because we haven't done this in so long, but we have to pace ourselves.
                     
                    And everyone knows the Roadhouses are ending the tour @ Kopp's after the last stop, right?

                      I'm not sure Klement's even has a tour, but it would be kinda....interesting to see how their sausage is made. Maybe they have tee-shirts that resemble sausage casings, or that have those five Sausage Guys that run around during Brewers games.
                       
                      Yeah, Layton would make a great tour. But heck, KK itself is a great tour.

                                    Ginger doesn't open until 5??

                                    A tapas bar: Ginger
                                    235 S 2nd St  Milwaukee, WI 53204
                                    On to our dinner stop: Riviera Maya
                                    2258 S Kinnickinnic Ave  Milwaukee, WI 53207
                                     
                                    And finally, dessert at a new place: Babe's Ice Cream
                                    2264 S Kinnickinnic Ave  Milwaukee, WI 53207

                                    Any who are reading are welcome to come. Newbies will be subject to initiation. Also yes, there is a hole for lunch, I left one on purpose. This way, our tour looks like a donut, and if we find someplace cool for lunch, we can stop.
                                     
                                    Ok.

                                          I'm in. I'm a little worried about the gap during the afternoon. With two places for brunch, two places for dinner, and a dessert stop on the schedule, I'm concerned we won't get enough to eat.

                                              Roadhouses; 2 (unless Mrs. Roadhouse is visiting her Mom in Kansas City that weekend, then just one).

                                              Scratched Dr. Dawg, eh?  Hmmph.

                                                Me!  I'm in.  Woo Hoo
                                                 
                                                Since Ginger doesn't open until 5, another shopping spot we can stop at is A & J Polish Deli.  I couldn't find a web site for them, but they are at 1215 West Lincoln Avenue, only about 2 miles from Groppi.  I've never been there yet, but it is on my list of places to check out.  Just a thought if we are looking for something to fill time.

                                                      OK I regret to inform you that I will not be around for this. I'm going to be in St Louis for the Packers-Rams game. I will leave my apartment key to anyone that wants to leave me some delicious goodies from the tour.

                                                        I'm pretty sure I'm in for this.
                                                        I also will not be doing a brewery tour, and I refuse to step foot in Lulu's (old grudge).
                                                        I would like to point out that Groppi's has been expanded, and has a small bar in the back (inside), along with an outdoor patio with several tables, if you get something from their deli or have a giant, delicious panini made-to-order for you. 
                                                        Across the way is Palomino (same owners as Honeypie and other places in MKE), and they have THE VELVET ELVIS sandwich - peanut butter, bananas, bacon on grilled white bread. JUST. SAYIN'.
                                                        I would also have liked a stop at Dr. Dawg, but...I guess another time.

                                                          We're saving the brewery tour for the spring.
                                                          What is Lulu's?
                                                          I *heart* Palomino.
                                                          If enough people feel that strongly about it (I too was disappointed to strike it) we can add Green River Palace, I MEAN Dr Dawg's back in. If gas money is an issue, I can fit 3 more in my car, 2 or 3 more in the trunk & at least 2 strapped to the roof.

                                                            I don't mind working Dr Dawg back into the picture. The drive to and fro may give us the opportunity for a quick, non-eating stop for the tour. (The Mke Riverwalk or one of the Saturday farmers markets?) 
                                                             
                                                            Alternatively, we could go to Riviera Maya for lunch (after Honeypie and Groppi's), make a stop at Ginger for tapas, then drive to Dr Dawg for dinner (they close at 8 pm). Dr Dawg is not too far from the North Shore Kopp's.
