The last time I was at Great Lakes Distillery they had Bolzano salami for sale in case anyone would care to try artisan meats. They had other unique Wisconsin products.
Oh and I'd be fine with car pooling; either as a driver or as a passenger.

      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.
      Thanks!  I'll keep it in mind if I know I'll be able to make the whole tour, but if I'm only going to be there for part of it I'll probably drive myself.

        So, I think we are going to be able to go on the trip.

        Graze Magazine's audience is mostly hipsters and Mr. Maki has decided he'd rather spend the day with Roadfooders than hipsters.  Iris, is there room in your car for two more?  If not, we can take Mr. Maki's new car!  Ooooo!

        Can we get a run-down of the itinerary again?  I'm looking back through posts and it seems like bits of the itinerary are mentioned over several posts, so I'm a little confused (my usual state!)

            Oh, ok.  Looks good.  I'll do my best to get BuddyRoadhouse out of bed in time.  Iris, you may want to consider having him spend the night at your house/in your car.

              You are so funny.
               
              I am starting a pool on when BR arrives in Milwaukee.  $5 a pick in 15 minute increments.

                09:00 start (that's 07:00 in AZ time).   Crap, BR may beat me this time.

                  Can we do a recap of the tour with places/times either here at the end of thread or at the beginning of the thread or mention what page the true-est version is on? (since we're up to 7 pages?)
                  Thanks
                  And the chance of my being in Milwaukee at 9AM is not really high- so you don't have to blame Buddy-
                  8AM is a bit early for me to leave LOL
                  I'll pow-wow w Buddy- maybe we'll leave 9-9:30 I'm thinking....
                  I could be swayed a bit-  
                  not sure who else from my family is in yet...Post Message

                    I need somebody to shift into Travel Agent Mode for a minute:
                     
                    Anything wrong with taking Forest Home Avenue from I-43 to Mitchell St. (and not just any Mitchell St., Historic Mitchell St.) and Mitchell east to Kinnickinnickinnickin^C?  Otherwise I can just stay on 43 and exit at 4th St.

                      The official tour, Iris, is on page 5, bottom of page. Still the same, but as it will be cold by the lake, we are thinking not combining Groppis and HoneyPie for a shared gathering at the park,as Amy and i wanted to. Still meeting at Groppi's. Moving on to HoneyPie, and then the rest, at the times indicated.Keep in touch by phone as to your arrival times.

                        Brad-I think its a horse a piece, however, I would take I 43 to Lincoln Av, Lincoln east to KK, right on KK, than a left on Russell.....takes you right to Groppis-will be on the right.

                          Ok, ppl. 

                          I may have been in a Native American Summer Good-Weather Funk when I suggested we pick up food & eat at a park by the lake.

                            I found a breakfast place for the early birds. They open @ 6:30AM & have several Benedicts to choose from as well as anything else you could want for breakfast. Menu.

                            The tour officially begins @ 9AM in Groppi's Parking Lot. It is here that Itineraries & maps will be handed out. Place your bets now on who will the the last to arrive. (this is not a dig @ anyone, I haven't been sleeping lately, gamblers, so it's anyone's game right now)

                            Groppi's Food Market
                            1441 E Russell Ave

                            Click me for a brunch menu (if you scroll down enough)
                             
                            Next Stop: Honeypie Cafe

                            Click me, you know you want to.

                            Milwaukee, WI 53207
                             
                            Then a lovely tour of a local distillery...did I mention it's FREE???!?!?!?!   --First tour begins @ 1pm, we're going for it!
                            Great Lakes Distillery, LLC
                            616 West Virginia Street
                            Milwaukee, WI 53204
                            Any other pumpkin fans here?
                            For $5 you can get samples. Not a requirement, just something good to know for those who don't click on the links.
                             
                            Then a trip to Glendale, for some GREEN RIVER, oops, I mean hotdogs & such. Carolina Bob, the plan is to be there by 2:30pm to meet you:
                            Dr Dawg
                            6969 N Port Washington Rd

                            Then Ann and I have planned a surprise stop.  All you need to know is--it's back on the South Side & we need to be there by 4ish.  You. Will. Love. It. No bribes will be accepted.

                             
                            After that: Ginger
                            235 S 2nd St 
                            Milwaukee, WI 53204

                            And finally, dessert at a new place: Babe's Ice Cream
                            2264 S Kinnickinnic Ave
                            Milwaukee, WI 53207
                             
                            (unofficial end to every tour is Kopp's on 76th & Layton)

                              I also got shouts outs for
                               
                              a Sausage Store
                               
                              Comedy Sportz
                               
                              a gelato shop
                               
                              Pacific Produce
                               
                              we'll see what we have time for. I'm sure a good time will be had by all.

                                    I may have been in a Native American Summer Good-Weather Funk when I suggested we pick up food & eat at a park by the lake.

                                    It's fricking FREEZING out there. There is NO WAY we're doing that.

                                    On Saturday. Look for it in a future Milwaukee Trip.
                                    I'm really disappointed as I was hoping we could get some tables near the fish cleaning station, but the possibility of doing that on a steamy summer day will keep me going through the long, cold winter.

                                        I may have been in a Native American Summer Good-Weather Funk when I suggested we pick up food & eat at a park by the lake.

                                        It's fricking FREEZING out there. There is NO WAY we're doing that.

                                        On Saturday. Look for it in a future Milwaukee Trip.
                                        I'm really disappointed as I was hoping we could get some tables near the fish cleaning station, but the possibility of doing that on a steamy summer day will keep me going through the long, cold winter.
                                        If it's warm like it is today, we can reconsider.
                                         
                                        I like the Webb's by the cop shop in the 'sha.

                                          Just kidding about Webb's.....love it, but probably not a viable stop.lol!
                                            Looking forward to this, my friends!

                                            Since I'm currently living in an area where Italian beef sandwiches are virtually unknown, I'm really looking forward to having a beef n' sausage combo ( dipped and hot ) at Dr. Dawg on Saturday. Can anyone whose had an IB sandwich there tell me how they compare to the ones you find in the Chicago area?

                                              Bob, it sounds like you need to bring a cooler so you can take a pound or three of beef home.
                                               
                                              Based on family schedules and available transportation it looks like I'll be showing up somewhere around Honeypie or Riviera Maya (how's the street parking along KK?) and probably taking off after Dr. Dawg so I can transport Mrs. Chicken to and from work in a timely fashion.

                                                Bob, while I have never eaten at Dr. Dawg's, I know the Scala brand of Italian beef, which they serve, is excellent, imo. To me its just as good as the Italian beef I have had in the Chicago area.

                                                  Bob,
                                                  David Ross, a native Chicagoan and owner of Dr. Dawg is a proud graduate of Hot Dog University. He graduated Summa Cum Laude. That should answer your question. You may want to save a little extra room for one of his Niman Ranch cheeseburgers. I prefer mine medium rare dressed with Vern's cheddar cheese, ketchup, well done grilled onions, and bacon. A char cheddar Polish with grilled onions also tops my list. Where else can you find Green River and Sprecher's root beer as a self serve fountain drink?

                                                      Sounds like Dr. Dawg's combo is something to look forward to ( and I am! ) Thanks, Ann and Mark, for the info, and I'll see y'all Saturday.

                                                            It's late to be asking advice for Friday, but I just arrived in Chicago (flight delayed because of weather, 45 min. wait for a cab) and I suddenly realized that tomorrow is 'Pie flight' day at Hoosier Mama's Pies.  I don't know much about our Saturday stops because I like to go in 'fresh'.  Are we going to be having pie on Saturday?  Should I save myself and eat something else tomorrow or is there never too much pie?
                                                            Also, my first and only dinner in Milwaukee was at Karl Ratzsch's, LOVED it!  Does it have the Milwaukee Food Lover's stamp of approval or do you go elsewhere for German food?
                                                            See you all on Saturday!
