carolina bob And Stricken, to me there's only one place for kringle and that's Bendtsen's.

I wouldn't feed their kringle to my dog. Or to my mother since they couldn't tell me whether or not there was walnuts in something.
Blueberry? Not my flavor ( I'm a raspberry man myself ) but we'll see... 
If it's from Bendtsen's, then don't worry about it.

That's a fine looking itinerary.  Got any approximate times to go along with the locations?  Those of us who might be last to arrive want to know where they can catch up with the rest of the group.

I have added times to the original post--in purple. Mrs Peeples is indeed correct. We will still be in the Honeypie/Groppi's/South Shore Park area @ 11AM.

Congratulations, Mr. Maki!  It isn't fair to leave us waiting in the checkout aisle, though. I hope I get to read the rest of the story.

Aimee and Ann, the tour looks fabulous. The food line-up is great, and the distillery stop looks fun. Can't wait to find out what you have in store at 4pm.  Did you find out if the South Shore Farmers Market is taking place on that Saturday?
 
BTW, just in case, the Kopps flavors of the day for the 20th are:
Turtle Sundae
Caramel flavored custard, loaded with pecans and swirls of caramel and fudge
Chocolate Cherry Kiss
For Valentines Day we created the richest, darkest, chocolate custard with exquisite, chocolate-covered cherries just for you, your sweetheart and your sweet tooth!

I volunteer to help get pie at Honeypie!!

Since both breakfast places look good, how about we split up into groups, (Hence my alter ego up above : "Half you go this way, half you go that way!") purchase agreed-upon items, and bring them to a central location and share them? Oh & did I mention the central location has a Farmer's Market that's open (allegedly, I gotta call them tomorrow) until the end of October? I didn't? Well, now you know.

It looks like I'll be traveling solo on this one.  Mrs. Roadhouse will be visiting her mother in St. Jo, MO, while abe and Mr. Maki will be celebrating his magazine publication.

Just FYI, the parking lot at Groppi's holds approximately 5 or 6 cars. I can't remember the last time I was able to score a spot in the lot. Street parking is available, but since it's near Palomino, it fills up fast.

Doesn't Palomino serve fried chicken and waffles on the weekend?

Chicken and waffles is listed on the menu but there doesn't seem to be any kind of a day/date restriction.
 
However, I noticed this:
 
**Biscuits & Gravy** $8 
_Two homemade biscuits literally enveloped in andouille sausage gravy and topped with an over easy egg._

on the brunch menu.  Sounds good!

Sounds like the perfect "two-for-one" stop.  The question is, will I be awake to take advantage of it.  Place your bets now.

Everything is always open to discussion/changes on the day of our meet. Or whomever wants to branch off.......I love the Bay view area, and there is so much to see and eat.......

Gyp and I did a mini, and totally unplanned, Roadfood type tour today. Our last stop was Choco Bella on KK. It just opened in May. They have fresh homemade Gelato (usually four flavors), and a beautiful variety of homemade gourmet chocolates. The place is tiny, but it's way cool.
Just an FYI if anyone was feelin' dessert-y.

Ann, I don't think anyone wants to change the tour, so no worries. It seems to me that the comment made was just a scouting report on a place that happens to be in the neighborhood where the tour will take place. Kind of a "heads up" on a cool place to keep on the radar for whenever.

Anyone interested in doing a little carpooling if there's some reasonably secure parking somewhere along the way?  Right now it's looking likely that I'll be a party of 1 and since Buddy's driving up by himself it seems like a practical thing to consider.

Well, my parking lot at my building is safe and free and there is lots of room. I'm basically at the start of KK, so we're right there. I'm in St. Francis on Lake Drive.
Just throwing that out there.

And I may ride up with irisarbor.  We might be able to make a carpool work.  I'll be carrying a cooler of some kind, so whatever we do we'll need to account for that space.

This might be something for those who don't need to get up on Friday to consider doing.
America's Test Kitchen, the popular public television cooking show, will hold taste tests and demonstrations at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Milwaukee Public Market Palm Garden, 400 N. Water St.
