Hi all. We had a great time. Kris, we made it to your booth at 3:02. One staffer didn't know you but the other one said you had just left. We went to Turners Hall where I had raclette, an oval dish of red potato's and melted raclette cheese which was served with pickles, pickled Brussels Sprouts and pickled asparagus; sounds strange but it was great! My mom had some very good French onion soup which was topped with gruyere. Mrs MFL had an onion tart served with a poached pear, X1 went with a Swiss sampler of röesti potato's (think an oval pan fried hash browns with onions and Swiss Cheese topped with butter and flipped so it is crispy on both sides-mmmm), mac 'n cheese and spaetzles; damn our lunches were good! Our waitress, on route to another table, stopped by ours and waved some pie under our noises and said we really have to try their pie as she thought it was special. A bus girl picking up plates chimed in that it was the best. One slice of Swiss cream pie and four forks proved her right. Buffetbuster, if you are ever in the neighborhood, stop in and see if the bus girl was right; she was by us.

Why it's time for The Berghoff & Blues Festival this year (alternates with Cheese Days)


Berghoff & Blues for 2009 has been cancelled due to the economy - story here.

With Fred's and Irish Fest under our belt and JRPfeff's Brat Fest coming up in two weeks, I figure it's not too early to remind everyone about the bi-annual Cheese Days in Monroe, Wisconsin coming up on September 17th-19th.

As of right now we're planning to go on Sunday the 19th.

Anyone else making plans to attend?

Truth to tell, we'd rather visit on any day other than Cheese Days. We love New Glarus and Monroe just about more than any other towns in Wisconsin and visiting at other times gives more time to spend exploring without the crowds. Still, we will try to go too. Gotta try that Liederkranz.

I mostly agree about visiting Monroe on an "off" day, but c'mon, it's Cheese Days, The Happiest Days on Earth!

Plus, the al pastor taco cart isn't set up on a regular day.

Thanks for reminding me about Cheese Days (the Wisconsin version) We were planning a weekend to go to Monroe and New Glarus, now I know when NOT to go! Love the area and the towns but not the crowds.

And since 90% of the crowds come from south of the Cheddar Curtain it probably feels just like home to you...
 
I have nothing written on my calendar for the 19th so I might be able to participate.  Perhaps we could set up a taste-off between Liederkranz and Limburger (sounds like a 1920s vaudeville team).

Golly, with all this talk about a private party at Burt's on the 26th, I almost forgot about this Sunday, September 19th for Cheese Days in Monroe.
 
We're still planning on making the trip, so who all are meeting up with, approximately what time, and where shall we meet?

No response to the last post, eh?
 
Oh well, we'll be leaving Chicago around 11-11:30am, aiming to arrive in Monroe around 1:00pm.  We can meet folks in front of Baumgartner's upon our arrival.  Or, if anyone has a better meeting spot, I'm all ears.

I've been meaning to bump this thread for the last few days and keep forgetting to do it.  So, here I am, very late at night (or early in the morning, depending on your life perspective), finally getting around to it.
 
To all interested parties, the biannual Cheese Days is coming up this weekend in Monroe, Wisconsin.  The Roadhouse clan will be paying their respects on Sunday, September 16th, early to mid afternoon through the end of the day.  Anyone who would like to join us is welcome.

I believe Monroe Wisc. is named for Monroe NY, a small town in Rockland county about 20 miles northwest of NY City. In the early 20th Century there was a large cheese company in Monroe, NY, but due to a decline in dairy farming in the area they moved to Pennsylvania and then to Wisconsin. The famous American version of Limberger cheese, Leidekranz, was invented in Monroe. And, I think, what we now know as cream cheese was invented there.
 
I'm happy to learn that Leiderkanz is again being produced - it is an excellent product.
 
Cheers, John

Ha, and I thought that it Monroe, LA.  I'd come just for the weather if it was cooler than here, still in the high 80's.

The weather in Monroe this weekend should be a delight.  Mid-70s, clear skies; a perfect early fall day in the upper Midwest.
 
We can pick you up at the Rockford airport on the way up north.  Just get me your flight number and ETA, and we'll be there.

If it's an even numbered year that must mean it's almost time for Cheese Days in Monroe, WI!
 
We've set aside Sunday, September 21st as our day to visit, arriving around 1-1:30p.  Anyone care to join us?

CTD, Come on and join us on the 21st.  In addition to Baumgartner's (Home of the Greatest Cheese Sandwiches Known to Mankind--by their own declaration, of course), Fried Cheese Curds, and all the Carnival Food you can imagine, there's also a couple of local cheese makers outlet shops where you'll find some amazing buys on fantastic, locally made cheese.
 
MFL, Happy 67th!  If the siren call of Cheese Days in Monroe wasn't luring us in, we'd join you in NOLA.
 
Maybe see both of you at Fred's later this month?

Mrs. C and I have nothing going on and Monroe's not that far away, so we've decided to check things out.  If you're still making the trip give me a time and location and we'll meet you there.

The trip is definitely a go.  The time (big surprise) is in flux.  Best case scenario will be an early afternoon arrival.  The best thing might be to exchange cellphone numbers in a PM and stay in touch.
 
Meeting in front of Baumgartner's has worked well for us in the past.  Nothing like starting your day with a fresh Limburger and onion sandwich!

Mr. C,
 
You may want to prepare yourself for the Cheese Days experience before you arrive. I suggest filling your TV viewing room with bad smelling cheese and a pile of old dirty gym clothes.  Then fast forward through Animal House to the parade scene. Start watching at the point when Flounder dumps the marbles. You are now ready for Monroe Cheese Days.

After giving our newspaper full credit I included a link to an article they did last Sunday on Monroe Cheese Days. Evidently I broke some rule as the post is gone. They talked also about Tony the owner of Alp and Dell Cheese store on Hwy 69 being from Switzerland and that he yodeled. He broke out in a yodel on my recent visit there earlier this month.
