Our hotel is booked in Port Washington and we're ready to go.  We'll drive up early on Friday with stops in Milwaukee and other points of interest.  Anyone wanting to get together pre-tour is welcome to join us.

Should we call any of the other places ahead of time?  For example, I'd like to be sure to get brats at Schwai's and brat buns at City Bakery.

Is the schedule pretty much final, at least in order of stops?

A stop or two in Milwaukee--maybe a Burger at Nite Owl or Sobelman's, then up the coast with no particular schedule in mind.  Suggestions?
 
A guy I know from LTHForum recommended running up to Susie Q Fish Company in Two Rivers for Smoked Fish, so depending on how early we get going, we might head up there.
 
We end up in Port Washington, but I don't care how late we get there, or how far we travel away from our hotel beforehand.

Buddy - Are you up for tapas?
 
Bobbi & I went to Espana Tapas House last week using a Groupon and had a great meal. We noticed that tapas are 1/2 price during happy hour and thought it would make a great stop for the Contingent some day. So how about this Friday from 4 to 6?
 
The owner is a trip to speak with, too.

Schwarz Fish Market is included as is Meisfeld's .
 
On to Port. Should we just play it by ear there? There is a Duluth Trading Company in Port Washington, a very nice pier, and of course Bernie's Meat Market. I worry only about getting to Dobie's at 5 sharp. I'm calling tomorrow for a rez. I'm like Burger King in that special orders don't upset me. We can also visit Ewing Brothers Fish Market in Port should you want.
Then on to Dobie's.
 
Buddy, I highly recommend Newport Shores in Port Friday night for cocktails, food, and the view. It is maybe 4, 5 blocks north of your hotel (you are staying at the Harbor something, right?), make a right on Jackson Street and head towards the lake one block and you've arrived. Also there is bar on the main drag called Alley Katz (maybe 3 blocks north). It is run by a husband and wife that sometimes travel with us to Treasure Beach Jamaica. Rich and Pam are the owners and if you stop in, mention us and Chuck, and ask to taste his home made sauces for his burgers and chicken sandwiches.

MFL, Google Maps is contradicting itself.  Playbird Road is northwest of the city (enter the address straight into G Maps) and the Old Wisconsin location close to Gosse's is at 2017 S. 17th St., so I don't know what's up with the location shown at 24th and Union.

I'm afraid I might have caused a little confusion. I had to pick a location to start my map. I picked Bayshore Center which is a large shopping mall just north of Milwaukee proper. No one is going there; it's just a map location start. Now that Buddy is already deep in the Cheese Curtain territory, what time should we all meet at Schwai's? I had suggested 11:30 only  to allow the Roadhouse's time to wipe the sand from their eyes. I think our remaining Chicago sister and brothers should pick an earlier time if desired. Greg, Lucy, Pete, Mark, and Nina, 10:30? 11?, 11:30?

Both the Old Wisconsin Factory and The Outlet store are on the same road as Gosse's (Union St.) but not next together. The Playbird Road address, which is their industrial address, is not where we are going. One is a few blocks east of Gosse's (the outlet), the other a few blocks west (the main headquarters). The factory outlet store is located at:
2107 South 17th Street (at Union) Sheboygan, WI 53081 The hours are Monday - Friday 9:00am - 4:30pm and Saturdays from 9:00am - 1:00pm. (all the more reason for a slightly earlier 11 am start time at Schwai's).  I would urge all to call City Bakery and reserve your hard rolls before Saturday. They WILL sell out. They are worth buying and if you want to preserve that crust make sure you specify "bag in paper bag please". You may then put them in plastic, just not plastic first. The phone is 920-457-4493. They have outstanding bakery and unique to the are products you may want but those rolls go fast and they are baked on a stone hearth

For those who might not be all that interested in Schwarz, just up the road is The Duke of Devon.  Anyone for pot roast poutine?

SC, if you can eat anything before Midway and Gosse's, you have a much larger appetite than anyone I know! WWBBE? I say go for it; more power to you but please take photographs. Keep in mind that Gosse's is a dessert stop  too. Cheeseburgers, pork chop sandwiches, restaurant steaks and double brats (don't even consider a single or we'll ALL be branded as hopeless out of towners) are all sharable as well as the many types of tortes.

From Bernie's Meat Market, we go south a block to westbound WI Hwy 33 aka Grand Avenue. We go maybe 5 blocks to a traffic light controlled intersection. That is WI Hwy 32. You go left (south) maybe a mile and pick up southbound I-43. South 25 miles to exit 314B Howard Ave. East 2.4 miles to KK. South on KK 4 blocks and Dobie's is on your left. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Bernie's+Fine+Meats,+119+N+Franklin+St,+Port+Washington,+WI+53074/Dobie's+Restaurant+%26+Lounge,+4136+S+Kinnickinnic+Ave,+St+Francis,+WI+53235/@43.2591015,-87.8979406,9z/am=t/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x8804ea1dde0530c1:0x4a17ac75660ffa5d!2m2!1d-87.869435!2d43.388119!1m5!1m1!1s0x880517c85d4785c5:0x74f1e783d3d1b3db!2m2!1d-87.872503!2d42.969318

A visit to Port yesterday had me stopping at Newport Shores. They use Bernie's bacon on some sandwiches. I thought it tasted like Nueske's. No, really. I'm pumped and the weather for Saturday is calling for a few degrees warming than previously predicted.  Still, it won't be short weather.
From Bernie's Meat Market, we go south a block to westbound WI Hwy 33 aka Grand Avenue. We go maybe 5 blocks to a traffic light controlled intersection. That is WI Hwy 32. You go left (south) maybe a mile and pick up southbound I-43.  South 25 miles to exit 314B Howard Ave. Expect traffic delays in Milwaukee. It was brutal at 3:45 pm and it will be much worse at 4:30 pm. East 2.4 miles to KK. South on KK 4 blocks and Dobie's is on your left. Dobie's opens at 4 and they have a small maybe 10 seat bar. I hate them, but the traditional cocktail at a supper club in Wisconsin is a Brandy Old Fashioned Sweet (common) or Sour (rare). Brandy, a sugar cube splashed with bitters, muddled, ice, and topped with 7-Up , garnished with orange slices and a cherry. As they say here, Dobie's pours a stiff drink and they also have all the classic ice cream drinks at a price I don't believe (cheap). https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Bernie's+Fine+Meats,+119+N+Franklin+St,+Port+Washington,+WI+53074/Dobie's+Restaurant+%26+Lounge,+4136+S+Kinnickinnic+Ave,+St+Francis,+WI+53235/@43.2591015,-87.8979406,9z/am=t/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x8804ea1dde0530c1:0x4a17ac75660ffa5d!2m2!1d-87.869435!2d43.388119!1m5!1m1!1s0x880517c85d4785c5:0x74f1e783d3d1b3db!2m2!1d-87.872503!2d42.969318

JRP, Tapas doesn't sound bad.  I'm a little concerned about your proposed meeting time of 4pm.  Will we need to show our AARP cards to get in that early?  Any thoughts on the MFL recommended Newport Shores and/or Alley Katz up in Port Washington?

Alley Katz is strictly a frozen patty on a flat top. I mentioned only since you are staying within easy walking distance should you want a cocktail and perhaps, perhaps live music. As a sauce man, I thought you'd enjoy sampling Rich's self made sauces. My walleye sandwich at Newport Shores was fantastic but I wish I had ordered something with that wonderful Bernie's bacon in it. I almost forgot, we shared a decadent schaum torte.
I've never tried Espana but the menu looks wonderful. My Friday ex-coworker dinner will be at El Fuego, a huge Mexican restaurant that has a large menu but only one item I find compelling. That is oysters on the half shell topped with shrimp, pico de gallo, and avocado slices. I plan on at least a dozen for my dinner.

What to do in Port Washington? From The Holiday Inn Harborview hotel where Grand Ave. bends into Franklin St. north for 4 blocks there are much to see and do. Besides Bernie's 119 N. Franklin and Alley Katz 219 N. Franklin there is Duluth Trading Company, 100 N. Franklin, Java Dock Café 116 W. Grand Ave., Baltica tea Room (Eastern European tea shop)  223 N. Franklin, 1860 Lighthouse Museum 311 Johnson St. (may be closed this Saturday though), Blue Heron Artisan Gallery 102 E. Pier St. , Schooners Bar, Gallery 224 224 E. Main St., Port Historical Society 205 N. Franklin, Sir James Pub, Harbor Temptations 215 N. Franklin, Hidden Treasure Resale Shop 139 W. Grand Ave., Portica Gift Shop 210 N. Franklin, and Pretty Paws pet shop 309 N. Franklin. Ewing Brother Fish Market 121 S. Wisconsin St. is just west and one block south of the Holiday Inn. I'd suggest being in your car at 4 pm.

Pho Hai Tuyet? Pho Viet? Chez Jacque? Coquette Café? Chef Paz Peruvian? Bureks at Moonshine? Two Brothers Serbian (charmless dining room-good food)? La Canoa Mexican seafood? Jalapeno Loco? Polonez? Here's a place I never tried but planned on-the reviews look promising-Dominican food http://www.yelp.com/.../la-caribe%C3%B1a-restaurant...

Another idea is to just go to Kopp's. Their food is OK and Dr. Dawg, CSD's students place is just across the street. I might be hamburger'd out but not hot dog/Italian Beef'd out. They also have tamales.  We could eat in Port at Newport Shores if they have room. They have real broasted chicken and Prime Rib besides seafood.

To those that don't FB (yes, it is a verb sometimes), we have a few places in mind. None will need a reservation and Chuck said we should just wing it. I think we could just overeat at Gosse's. Jim, Bobbi, was it 12 different types of tortes? Chicago folks, we have a good sized Vietnamese place near the airport that has a banh mi unlike anything in the Windy City. Think bulgogi pork as the meat choice. Lucy mentioned Jalapeno Loco. I think winging it is the best idea. Do all of our dinner people have a GPS? I think all of our choices involve exiting I-43 at Layton Avenue.

We're fully GPS equipped and loaded.  Vietnamese sounds like it might be a good option after a meat intensive day.
 
So, what happened to Dobie's, or is it too painful to talk about.

Hi Everyone,
I was so looking forward to joining you but work has intervened. I was hoping to be able to rearrange things and be able to attend but it was all in vain. May is completely out for all travel so not only am I having to cancel out on this but I also won't be able to make it to Smoke (Pie) Day. I hope to see you in the fall if there is another meeting of the Contingent.

CNW,
Sorry you can't join us.  Nothing specific in the works for the fall, but anytime we get together, one of the main topics of discussion is, what when and where will the next get together be.

cjcoder, I called City Bakery and reserved a dozen rolls and a loaf of hard roll bread (makes wonderful toast) for myself. They only make a limited supply of their brat meat filled rolls so that might be a problem but they have enough unusual bakery items plus their sweet rolls, pies and cakes we should leave happy. Since Saturday is a heavy shopping day and all 3 meat markets have special brat flavors besides their regular ones I think you're safe. Still,   it wouldn't hurt to call ahead. I'm pretty sure Bernie's would be unable to sell our group 16 pounds of bacon. I might have to settle for fresh or smoked Slovenian or Hungarian sausage or a stick of their Cajun summer sausage. Meisfelds has enough of everything for all of us and Schwai's might have enough frozen products to supplement his fresh.
Schwai's-262-692-2731
Scwarz Fish Market-920-452-0576
Meisfeld's-(920) 565-6328
City Bakery-920-457-4493
Old Wisconsin changes daily but I'm hoping for habanero beef sticks-No phone
