.........

A few questions:  Where is Lucky's?  Is this the same Parthenon we went to on the last trip?  If so, why is it on the list again?

Have you all gotten confirmation from Maureen yet?  I haven't heard from her.
Btw, the New Orleans Roadfood Festival will be at the end of March (26-28)--mark your calendars!

Katherine,

Yes, Maureen's response is here.  We are all set for the morning of the 13th.

Will you need someone to pick you up at the airport?

I plotted this map for the Roadfood on TMJ4 Meet & Greet.  Google Maps was giving me fits, but I think this link finally works.  I think this is a pretty full day, but Penzey's World HQ and Miller Brewing are also close to the route if someone has the time and interest.  Bobbi and I scouted McBob's to Champion Chicken last night and she spotted some interesting looking shopping.  So you may expect some additional delays.

The route is fairly compact and keeps off of freeways.  I added Candy Cane Lane after the Rice Palace as a fun stop before custard at Kopp's (FOTD are Butter Pecan & Peach Melba).  It should be dark by then.

Cheers.

Wow Jim, what a great route. I live(d) in these areas and you've done a wonderful job.  Mrs MFL has a prior commitment so we may only be along for the in initial McBobs stop. The advance forecast calls for dry but cold weather.

Q - you have a standing invite to join me whenever I visit NOLA.
And yes, both ChuckL50 and I are here, right now. Chuck until Monday, me until Tuesday.

Buddy - Roadfood.com will be in NOLA again this year, in early Feb, because they enjoyed it so much last year. I'm really considering a quick weekend trip down there for that.

 
Thanks, X1, I hope to get there someday. Maybe sometime in 2010, if I'm lucky.

I, too, am letting the dust settle. Anything is fine.
We don't have to do Parthenon again - I thought the TV crew would be with us the whole way, so I wanted to showcase some of our ethnic places. Hence the suggestion of Lucky's, Parthenon, and National Ave. Since they will only be with us for the first 2 stops, we can change the itinerary to whatever we want after that, because, although it matters to us, it won't matter to them, as they won't be there.

 
Looks like things are proceeding along quite well; I'm about to dig into JRPfeff's google map!

This is fantastic! So far, the only edit is to remove H (West Allis Sausage and Cheese on W. Becher) because they close early on Sundays. But everything else seems to be doable.
 
I called Lucky's--they're open on Sundays until 4 pm.
 
I love the beeline from I (Rice Palace) to J (Candy Cane Lane) and K. (Kopps).
 
Here's a list of the stops so far, with possible times:
 
(A) McBob's (4919 W. North Ave., 414-871-5050) 10:30 am
 
(B) Champion Chicken (8718 W. Lisbon Ave., 414-462-6400) 12:00/12:30 pm?
 
(C) Ray's (8930 W. North Ave., 414-258-9821)
(D) Sendik's (8616 W. North Ave., 414-456-9525)
(E) Spice House (1244 N. Glenview Ave., 414-258-7727)
(F) Le Reve (7610 Harwood Ave., 414-778-3333)  Possible Stops in Tosa: 1:30/2:00 pm?
 
(G) Lucky's (1480 S. 84th St., 414-476-9880) 3:00/3:30 pm?

(H) West Allis Sausage and Cheese [closed after 2:00 pm] [Maybe hit a bakery or other small place before dinner at Rice Palace?]
 
(I) Rice Palace (3730 W. National Ave., 414-383-3156) 4:30/5:00/5:30 pm?
 
(J) Candy Cane Lane [92nd and Oklahoma; holiday displays] 6:30/7:00/7:30 pm?
(K) Kopps (7631 W. Layton Ave., 414-282-4312) 7:00/7:30/8:00 pm?

Good ideas. That time block will be a bit more relaxed and flexible, so we can split into a couple of small groups if warranted. I've never been to Pizzeria Piccola but have heard good things; I'd like to try it. But I will also have to go into Le Reve and say hello to my good friends in the patisserie section. I may have to ransom a few to take home, too.


Are you referring to these friends at Le Reve?

The Saints (and Washington's kicker) gave you both a nice present.
The weatherman has a welcome home present for you two. A small present for ChuckL.; a much bigger present for you I'm afraid.
Are you oystered out?

Um...

I've been thinking, and I'm with Buddy and JRPfeff - Later in the day, fewer stops. 3 stops - 4 maximum.


I can't make 11 stops. Sorry guys, that is a huge time committment that I was not counting on. Have a great time!

stricken, 11 stops aren't planned; it's more like 5 or 6 for those who do the whole thing. The main ones seem to be McBob's, Champion, Lucky's, and Rice Palace--that's 4.  Because not everyone wants to eat consecutive meals, C-F are thrown in for shopping. And because our Chicago friends may want to have custard before heading back south, J and K have been added on for those who want it. This tour doesn't seem any more ambitious than others.
 
Because I have to work the next day, I plan on cutting loose after Rice Palace. Similarly, you can come and go as you wish once we nail the real itinerary and approximate times down. MFL said he could only go to McBob's. However, other folks may wish to do the whole thing. This may be true of those from Chicago; why would they want to drive up for just a couple of hours, then go home?
 
In any case, the itinerary is far from concrete; anyone is welcome to step in and suggest changes. This is supposed to be a collective effort, so if people want this to go from 10:30 am until, say, 3:00 or 4:00 pm, then please, say so!  We have a few more days yet to build an itinerary that reflects the interests of all involved.

I hate to bail out on the Contingent ( again ), but I learned yesterday that the family Christmas party is being held on the 13th, and since I haven't attended in the last couple of years, I feel that I should make an appearance this year and catch up with relatives that I haven't seen in quite a while. Have a great time, and think of me when you're partaking of frozen custard.

Thanks for putting the map together, JRP.  By the looks of it stops A through E are going to be possible for me but I'm probably not civilized enough to be allowed inside Le Reve.

Sorry to hear you won't be able to make it, Bob.  If it wasn't for the TV coverage we could just crash your party instead.

I know there are some people on this board who wouldn't be stopped by a restaurant being closed.



We can still hit Pizzeria Piccola which is close by the Spice House.

Well, you certainly know how to hurt a guy. I guess I'll have to go there on a weekday and indulge my sweet tooth.  It's a wonderful place for patisserie and baked goods. I know stricken_detective was fond of Harlequin Bakery (as I was too), but I think she and other lovers of baked goods would thoroughly enjoy Le Reve's croissants. Mmmmm.

It looks like it won't open until 4:00 pm on Sunday, so we may not be able to go. Unless the hours on the webpage aren't current?  I really do want to try it, though; I just keep hearing great things about it.

You rang?

You really don't know how close I came to making this trip.  I think I need to make one more flight to earn my Platinum status this year - and calculated the mileage to MKE.  It is just short of the amount of miles that I need.  I am jealous that I will not be making the trip, as (in addition to the menu you have planned) I had hoped to get my hands on some kringle!

Q - Thanks for the heads up.  I think I looked at some of those at one time and found the shipping charges prohibitive.  Also, in my experience, there are very few shipped food items that are as good as they are when found at the scene. For instance, as much as I love G&M's crab cakes in Baltimore, and have had them shipped home, they just aren't the same as when you order them at the restaurant.

Besides, if I *am* going to order any pastry this holiday season, I think it is going to be some of the crumb cake discovered by Tony Bad.  I am sure that I will make it back to Milwaukee some time in the near future - and will eventually get my kringle.

And the only thing that prevented me from showing up is that I have plans for the ballet on Sunday.  Attending, not performing.  Had the tickets not been so expensive.....  Please make sure that someone gets the corned beef hash at McBob's!

Because of the date it'll be very important to dress in an appropriate manner.

Want to impress as smart and classy?  Choose the colors of orange and navy.

Want people to think you're a knuckledragging, slackjawed yokel?  Green and gold all the way.
 
Or perhaps you feel the opposite is true.



Brad
 
PS  Except for MFL.  For the visit to Champion Chicken I think he should wear a white linen suit and a black string tie.

The Travelin Man

Q - Thanks for the heads up.  I think I looked at some of those at one time and found the shipping charges prohibitive.  Also, in my experience, there are very few shipped food items that are as good as they are when found at the scene. For instance, as much as I love G&M's crab cakes in Baltimore, and have had them shipped home, they just aren't the same as when you order them at the restaurant.

Besides, if I *am* going to order any pastry this holiday season, I think it is going to be some of the crumb cake discovered by Tony Bad.  I am sure that I will make it back to Milwaukee some time in the near future - and will eventually get my kringle.

 
Crab cakes, crumb cakes--sounds like breakfast to me!
 
I agree with you on the kringle--there's nothing like going to the bakery itself, especially at this time of year. Sounds like a good reason to organize a Racine/Burlington tour for late winter or early spring!
