No for us as we are in North Carolina. So sorry to miss Fred's. And you guys of course!

It looks like another small group at Fred's this year.  Based on the above responses the guest list looks like this:
 
ScreaminChicken - 1
BuddyRoadhouse - 1
X1 - 1 (maybe)
quijote - 2 (maybe)
 
Let's say 2:00pm as in years past.  Since I'll be alone, it's unlikely I'll continue up to Irish Fest, but would be open to other suggestions for a day in southeast Wisconsin.
 
We're almost out the door for Friday's Irish Fest run.  Any replies to this will be seen late tonight.

I don't know enough about that part of the state to make any suggestions, although at one time X1 did offer to act as tour guide for a visit to Greendale.  But that's well into the Milwaukee area and not exactly close to Burlington.

It looks like it's a no-go for me and John--too many obligations this weekend. If you come up to Milwaukee later in the day, give me a buzz on the cell, and maybe we can do a Leon's Custard or something like that.

Ladies and gentlemen, the 2014 Fred's World's Best Hamburger Expedition has been postponed.  Due to some rough schedules, the only two Contingent members who were actually going to show up today (ScreamingChicken and moi) decided we'd both be better off taking a day of rest instead of fighting traffic and burning fossil fuels.
 
So now it's out there for discussion: When shall we reschedule and who's available?  There's still a solid two and a half months left of decent weather.  Our only commitment between now and the end of October is our daughter's wedding the weekend of September 5-7.  Other than that we're completely open and still interested in getting together.
 
Perhaps a Doodle Poll is called for.  Are you there abe_froeman?

Yeah. I just left you a message because I didn't see this until just now. I was unable to go today because it looks like I am going to Mykonos with family. Feel like Greek food, Buddy? Hahaha. As far as future Fred's dates, my schedule is varied, but I almost always have Fridays free, and Saturdays are best.

Better that your daughter be an expert on the poll than an expert on the pole, I guess.
 
September and October are mostly good for me with the only definitely unavailable Saturday at this point being September 13.  And if you're still planning on visiting Monroe on September 21 maybe the 20th would be a reasonable choice, since you can simply continue west from Burlington instead of going back home.  In fact, if you wanted you could take state highway 11 all the way.

For me, availability really varies from week to week. I can probably meet Friday the 22nd during the day (will know for sure in a couple of days), but Saturday the 23rd is out. Friday the 29th during the day is free for me; Saturday the 30th may work, but Saturdays can be kind of iffy. Fridays in September are out, and Saturday the 6th won't work.
 
Don't forget (or if you never knew, please know) that the Bay View Bash takes place on Saturday, September 13:

I'm not sure we'll be willing to head out to Burlington that day, but we'll be happy to rendezvous with any RF friends who come to Bay View. The Global Union takes place in Humboldt Park that same day, so there will be plenty to do:

Yeah, imagine that embarrassing confrontation:
 
"Why Dad, what are you doing here?"

"Um, I was just doing some missionary work, trying to save a few wayward souls.  How about you?"
 
"Nothing much.  Whenever the poles get tarnished I come in and polish them up.  The girls are very appreciative."
 
"I'm sure they are..."

When you drive up, it certainly doesn’t appear to be a big place, and it’s not. Fred’s has just about a dozen tables (although they are larger than average), a full bar, and that’s about it. The decor pays homage to all of the local heroes – local coaches
