Bob!
I'm really sorry I missed ya!
The dog ate my homework...
I was truly trying, but the Japanese Taiko drummers at the Botanic Garden went longer than I thought...
and we didn't leave there till 1:45....
so instead of Fred's
my son who needs to practice driving and I went to
Captain Porky's on US 41 and Wadsworth Rd.
I don't know if any of you have checked this place out yet, but it is like cajun seafood heaven.
Son A had a "snack" of 1/2 lb fried jumbo shrimp with steak fries and slaw and cornbread.
I had a lobster salad po-boy with garlic potatoes and a frosty libation-
yum yum - not too far from an east coast lobster roll (except the wrong kind of bread)
the bread was good- just not the authentic top slit hot dog bun thing...
EVerything looked amazing in the seafood case.
There is a BBQ case, which... the chicken looked OK...it smelled smoky....
I didn't try anything so I won't say anything- I'm kind of BBQ spoiled since when I make it,
I take it off the smoker at the moment of perfection.

I will definitely see all on Sept 1!

Captain Porky's is an LTHForum favorite.  It should definitely be included in a Contingent tour sometime, especially as it is so close to our friends north of the Cheddar Curtain.

Captain Porky's is a good place, and I also like The Shanty in the adjacent space.
It was great seeing so many RFers at Fred's on Saturday. And Bob, it was great to see you again.

If I'm not mistaken, both The Shanty and Captain Porky's have the same owner(s).

Getting together with friends is one thing, traveling all the way to Fred's is another.  After driving over an hour to get there, I was extremely disappointed.
It is a small, overrated, disorganized bar with very average food that somehow developed a cult following.  Absolutely no redeeming qualities above this place.

It's that time of year again: Irish Fest and Fred's weekend is August 16 & 17.
 
Friday the 16th is $5 admission day at Irish Fest.  Saturday the 17th is Fred's day, followed by activities TBD.  If the Irish Fest entertainment roster is strong, we'll go back there.  If it's an off year, we'll find something else to do in the Greater Milwaukee Area.
 
In fact, if anyone has any ideas, we're open!

I could maybe do something Friday (not sure how interested I am in Irish Fest.  I guess I haven't been there in a few years, so maybe, if everyone else is doing it, why not?) But we're out for Saturday- going on a tour of the Two Brothers Roundhouse as a fundraiser for the Unity Temple in Oak Park.

Porky's and Shanty are not the same owners...one side is the son's, and the other is the father's.

The 17th works for me.  Mrs. Chicken will probably have to work, though.

I know people have talked about a Greendale tour, which kind of puzzles me, as it won't take too very long to do a "tour". 
 
However, I am offering Greendale as a stop for a few hours to kill on Saturday, if it's a "no-Irish-Fest" Day. It's their 75th Anniversary year, so there's constantly things going on. We'll just miss their Village Days celebration, though. 
 
Ferch's Old Fashioned Malt Shoppe for marble slab ice cream, or sundaes, or shake or malts....
 
Ricardo's for what will always be one of my favorite pizzas.
 
Shopping in any of the quaint little stores up and down Broad St. 
 
A visit to say "Hi" to Norman Rockwell, who has set up an easel across from the Courthouse and is busily painting; year in, year out.
 
Libations at what will be the very-newly-opened Panther Pub.
 
If we get all dressy and feel like spending some serious cash, Joey Gerard's, a Bartolotta restaurant and modern Supper Club, is next to Ricardo's.
 
A visit to the Historical Society
 
A drive around town to look at the historical houses (although we won't be able to go in to any of them).

I'd certainly be up for a few stops in Greendale if Irish Fest turns out to be a dud.  Maybe even a return trip to that Greek Fest if it's going on that weekend.  And don't rule out a nightcap at Kochanski's Concertina Beer Hall.

The 17th works for me for Fred's.  Won't be joining you for Irish Fest, though, either Fri or Sat.  The Greendale thing sounds fun.  It's not a big time/money investment and would make for a relaxing afternoon.

I'd also be interested in checking out Greendale but if it's done as part of Fred Day what about making it either the first stop of the day (11am) or the last at some point in the afternoon?

We can't make it the first stop, or the Roadhouses wouldn't be included, I think.
 
The last stop is fine, as capping off the day with Ricardo's pizza is fine with me. However, oddly, some of the stores only stay open until about 5 on Saturdays.

10 days to go...time to start finalizing plans?  Mrs. Chicken's working so I'll be on my own, and am thus pretty flexible for what's decided.

Fred's at 1:30-2:00 per usual works for us.  After that I'll leave it up to the locals.
 
I'll check the Irish Fest website for early indications of whether or not we'll be attending Saturday.

Did we decide if we're doing anything on Friday?  Today was the last Friday Pete had off (summer schedule at work), so we'd be available in the evening.

Any news, Buddy?
 
Either early (around 11) or late (after 2) works for me.  A late start avoids the lunch rush and those without plans can dawdle if they wish, but it also means that others might have to rush off after eating because of other plans.  Alternatively, an 11am start gets us in before the rush and allows for a wider variety of activities afterward (I understand that some of you like frozen custard), but it also means an early start for those coming from a distance.  I happen to have my own little agenda for the day...

If you think I'm going to be in Burlington, WI at 11am, you haven't been paying attention these last few years.  We'll shoot for 1:30.
 
Adrian's has been a curiosity every time we go to Fred's.  We just can't seem to muster the strength to go there after a Fred's Burger.  Maybe this year will be different.
 
Still not sure about our "After-Fred's" plans, but the group shouldn't worry about us.  If Greendale is the destination, you should stick with it, whether we're in attendance or not.  We might even do both; hang out in Greendale early, and head over to Irish Fest later.  Last year, we played it by ear and found ourselves at a neighborhood GreekFest, shopping at the new Cermak's grocery store, then wrapping up with dinner at a Thai BBQ Joint.  All in all, not a bad day.
 
Looks like ChickenLips has plans of his own: Washing down a Fred's Burger with an Annie's CharcoBurger.  Not a bad plan, actually.

Buddy,
Going to I Fest on Friday. At 8:30, Banjo 3 is a "must see." Saw them last week at Chief O'Neill's in Chicago. Fantastic! One of the top three rated Irish bands in the world and worth seeing again. Having dinner at the Jake's concession. Last week at state fair, Jake's served Reuben's on a Stick ( two mini sandwiches made with shredded corned beef, blended with sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese on a mini onion roll) .Hope they serve them at I Fest. See you on Friday.

P.S. CSD, we'll get there in time for the $5 entrance fee and start out under the rainbow arch near the Information Booth.  If you miss us, we'll keep an eye peeled.  Banjo 3 sounds like a good bet, so if nothing else we'll see you at their stage at 8:30.

Buddy Roadhouse--
 
It says he posted 2 hours ago. All I see is a post from 7-20.
 
Did he maybe edit a post?
 
What time are you guys meeting at Fred's? Is there a roll call? And does anyone have room in their car for me? I am out of commission, but trying to get back into the swing of things.

Not sure what you're seeing; everything seems to be in order on my screen.
 
Be that as it may, The plan is to meet at Fred's this Saturday, between 1:30-2:00pm.  After that we could head back to Irish Fest, or possibly a tour of Greendale, or any number of other activities in and around Milwaukee.
 
Response to this year's Fred's excursion has been rather light.  We know JRPfeff and Pie Diva will not be there.  ScreamingChicken and I have made firm commitments.  I think X1 and cjucoder are planning to attend, but haven't heard from them in a while.  After that, you're the first person to respond one way or the other.  Maybe someone could put the word out on Facebook and direct the group's attention this way.
 
Hope you find a ride, we'd love to see you.
 
Buddy

I'll be at Fred's. 
By then you'll know if you're going back to I Fest or not, right?
 
I'll be happy to lead anyone on a Greendale tour. The new Panther Pub is open and hoppin', and has outdoor seating, too, which is nice.
 
I'll text Gyp today and see if he'll be in town or not.

Yup, I'll be meeting you at Fred's.  I plan to go down a bit early and stop at River Valley Ranch to shop for some of their kick-butt mushrooms and condiments.

Oooo...River Valley sells shiitakes and oyster mushrooms!  I just might see you there, and according to Google Maps there's a well-reviewed restaurant called Local Folks right down the road.  Thanks for mentioning it!

Well, at least it'll be easier to get a table with just 5!  Hopefully they'll be able to make the Chicago architecture tour in October.  
  
Perhaps Pancho, Cousin-ick, ALLGOOD, and some of the other names-without-faces would like to join us!

Yes!  All are welcome!  Please let us know if you'll attend so we can get a big enough table.
 
Speaking of which, it's time to do a head count:
cousin-ick - 1 (possibly more?)
X1 - 1
cjucoder - 1
stricken_detective - 1 (if she can get a ride)
ScreamingChicken - 1
BuddyRoadhouse - 2 (possibly 4--Our "non-Roadfood" daughter and her fiance might join us.  Hope to have confirmation soon.)
 
Total so far: 6, possibly 8.

Saturday at Fred's and Irish Fest is looking like a no-go for me and Sancho Panza. We will probably take advantage of reduced admission rates tomorrow (Thursday) for Irish Fest, though. BTW, Carlos Nunez, a highly acclaimed bagpiper from the Galicia region of Spain, will perform each day of Irish Fest; tomorrow he plays at 7pm. I don't know if you like his style of music, but I recommend dropping by to hear him, if you can.

Hi Kidz, I'm on dial-up, what time at Fred's in Burlington?
 
I really need to catch up on some yard work but if I can squeeze in a burger run, I will!
 
No Irish Fest for me.

BTW, all:  It looks like the AHEPA "OPA" Greek Festival in Hales Corners is taking place this weekend. Sancho Panza and I may be able to attend later in the afternoon, in case anyone else here is planning to go and wants to meet up.

Arriving at Fred's 1:30-2:00 (allowing for FIB traffic), after that who knows.  How many seats shall I put you down for?

Cjucoder mentioned River Valley Ranch earlier in this thread so that's where my day started, in the booming metropolis of Slades Corners.  And after seeing the sign for Slades Corners it took hours to get Run Runaway out of my head...
 
But before River Valley I stopped at Local Folks for a snack.  It's your typical small-town combination bar and restaurant.

 

 
I arrived just as the breakfast-lunch changeover was occurring and the kitchen was running behind, so I had to wait awhile for my BPT to arrive.  It was pretty good and I think it was hand-breaded, as I could taste a hint of what I thought was flour.

 

 
 
From there it was off to River Valley Ranch.

 
River Valley's reputation was built on mushrooms but that's not the only thing grown.  While I was there several people purchased some of these tomatoes.

 
Other artisanal products are also available...

 
...including portobello-and-Swiss brats from Wilson Farm Meats of Elkhorn.  River Valley was offering them for lunch while I was there so I coughed up the cash for one.  After all, Fred's was still a good 10-15 minutes away and I couldn't risk hunger-induced fatigue before I got there.

 
This was a very good brat and I wound up buying some to take home.  They're made with pasteurized process Swiss cheese instead of the real thing that I'd prefer, but in this case it's a good choice for melting and consistency purposes.

 
 
From there it was off to Fred's, where we started with appetizers of fried pickle spears and cheese curds.

 

 
I hadn't had the Cajun burger for a couple of years so I ordered the 1/4-pound version, which was nicely seasoned and not too spicy.

 
Cjucoder and X1 each had the cheeseburger with what I believe was cheddar.

 
And the BuddyRoadhouses split a horseradish burger.

 
Sure seems like we didn't order very much, doesn't it.  Well, there was a reason...
 
Buddy had noticed a sign in the window of John's Main Event proclaiming that Burlington's best burgers could be found inside, so before we ordered at Fred's we decided to turn the day into a burger tasteoff.

 
Instead of sitting inside we chose to dine al fresco in the beer garden behind the building.  It was a cozy setting with ivy on the walls and the fence, which thankfully didn't attract any Cubs fans while we were there.

 
Our hero has arrived!

 
Cjucoder and I split a double cheeseburger, which contains the same amount of beef (1/2 pound) but more cheese than the single-patty version.

 
That's one of John's very good homemade potato chips underneath the burger.

 
X1 chose the hangover burger, which is topped with a fried egg and some bacon.

 
The Roadhouses split a patty melt, which for some reason I ignored.
 
John's burgers are good in their own right, but they're different from Fred's in that they have a sort of grilled flavor, as if they might've been cooked over a gas flame instead of on a flattop.  Next year we should hit John's first and then Fred's, to see if that changes opinions.

Sorry for flaking out on this great meet-up. 70 hour work weeks kinda kill my weekends. Being on dial-up also makes it hard to post updates.
Hope to meet some of you folks soon.
I'm hitting Mib and Viv's in Lannon for broasted chicken Saturday and really hope to get to SeafoodFest in Menasha on the 7th of Sept.
 
Sorry to post so much non-related info but I need to post when I can.

We kept looking for you ick-aroo,hoping you'd show up.  Someone asked, "If we've never met him, how will we know what he looks like?"  The solution: We kept mentioning the word "Roadfood" rather loudly, figuring, if anyone turned and looked our way, it must be you.
 
I don't think anybody looked, but if they did, they were probably thinking, "Who are these peculiar people."  And they'd be right.

Well look at this!
The reply window loaded the 1st try!
Thanks for thinking of me Buddy!
From the partial pics I can see, the burgers looked pretty darn good.
 
I'm off to try to post a comment in the chicken thread.
