I need a headcount. Itinerary to be posted this weekend. 


Also, abe_froeman really upped the ante by making MAPS & handing them out along with everyone's cell number on the last tour--FANCY DANCY, ABEY BABY!!!! So if you do not want your number on this list, or if you are Amish, let me know by PM, FaceBook, carrier pigeon, etc.

    I could be anywhere from 1 to 3 people depending on how the itinerary matches up to work schedules.

      I am getting very excited for this tour!!!!!! Dr. Dawg is a great addition, have heard its the best from their neighbors next door( Robert Haack Diamonds-friends of mine) Where should we meet-kinda thinking that side of town-making it possibly the first or second stop. Benji's, and Kopps is near there, too.just thinking-however the Kopps thing should be last, I guess.Let me know thoughts!

        There will be at least 2 of us and up to 6. I will let you know later the exact number when I know myself.

            If we're looking at places to meet, and want good AM places, I suggest (in order of my faves):
            Stone Creek Coffee
            Sven's Cafe
            Hi-Fi Cafe (across from Honeypie)
            Alterra Coffee
            Anodyne Coffee
             
            There's also a $tarbucks on the corner of KK and Oklahoma, but who cares?
             
            Also, as far as non-food stops go, further up KK, where it turns into First Street, is Comedysportz. They have 3 PM  Matinee shows for $7.50. If we notify them ahead of time, it's possible we could get a group discount, and also that they might tailor a show if we mention we're foodies on tour, and some are from out of town.
            Laughter is good for the digestion.

                      It looks like I will be able to join y'all on the 20th, at least for the last half of the day. I have my bi-monthly doctor's visit in mid-morning, plus I have a couple of stops to make on the way north from Chicago ( one's a side trip to downtown Racine; betcha can't guess what that's for. )

                        3. The SC Johnson Tour?
                        4. Are you finally coming to paint my house?

                          What ever is last, we'll eat the least. Count us in for 3: Nina, myself, and Sam-the official Contingent mascot. Sam will be our driver. While Sam drives, Nina and I are in the back seat with our heads out the window and our ears flapping in the breeze. For those who've never met Sam, he's very fond of Wisconsin cheeses.

                            Aww heck, Mark, you guessed! Now that the cat's out of the bag, make sure that there's a stepladder and enough cans of paint when I get there.

                                    Mr. Maki and I might have to duck out for this trip.  

                                    As some of you may know, Mr. Maki writes short stories.  He's had a dozen or so published in small literary magazines and he recently had one accepted into Graze Magazine, which, ironically, is a literary magazine for food-related stories.  They're local and they also host events at restaurants and other food-related places, sometimes with food writers, chefs and other people in the culinary world.   

                                    The release party for the magazine is October 20th and he wants to go.  If it was any other boring old literary magazine, I (and probably "we") wouldn't bother going, but, as you all will probably understand, a food magazine party is a little more interesting.

                                    ETA: You can preview part of his story here- they only put the first 10 pages up because the issue hasn't technically come out yet.  Unfortunately, his story is on the last page, so it gets cut off mid-sentence.

                                      Kudos to Mr. Maki! Can't wait to hear the rest of the breadcrumb adventure.

                                          Congrats Mr. Maki!   That magazine looks to be right up my alley, and I need to find out what else happens in the grocery store   Guess I'll have to pick up a copy.  Are breadcrumbs really in the baking isle?  I guess some people put them in stuffed peppers that are then baked, or are a topping for mac & cheese that is then baked.  Best I can come up with.  LOL.
                                           
                                          Looking forward to the itinerary on this tour, it's going to be a good one.  Thanks Ann and Aimee for working on it.

                                            I didn't forget about you guys, really I didn't.
                                             
                                            Just like I didn't forget to post the rest of my review of our tour a month ago.

                                                        Ann, I hope you don't make Dr. Dawg one of the early stops. I can't get up to Milwaukee until 2 PM or so and DD is the one stop I'm really interested in. And Stricken, to me there's only one place for kringle and that's Bendtsen's. Blueberry? Not my flavor ( I'm a raspberry man myself ) but we'll see...

                                                            Fall Tour Saturday October 20, 2012 Tue, 10/2/12 1:44 AM (permalink)
                                                            I found a breakfast place for the early birds. They open @ 6:30AM & have several Benedicts to choose from as well as anything else you could want for breakfast. Menu.

                                                            Zak's Cafe
                                                            231 S. 2nd Street
                                                            Milwaukee, WI 53204
                                                             
                                                            The tour officially begins @ 9AM in Groppi's Parking Lot. It is here that Itineraries & maps will be handed out. Place your bets now on who will the the last to arrive. (this is not a dig @ anyone, I haven't been sleeping lately, gamblers, so it's anyone's game right now)

                                                            Groppi's Food Market
                                                            1441 E Russell Ave
                                                            Milwaukee, WI 53207
                                                            Click me for a brunch menu (if you scroll down enough)
                                                             
                                                            Next Stop: Honeypie Cafe
                                                            2643 S Kinnickinnic Ave
                                                            Milwaukee, WI 53207
                                                            Click me, you know you want to.
                                                             
                                                            But wait! I have an idea!

                                                             
                                                            Since both breakfast places look good, how about we split up into groups, (Hence my alter ego up above : "Half you go this way, half you go that way!") purchase agreed-upon items, and bring them to a central location and share them? Oh & did I mention the central location has a Farmer's Market that's open (allegedly, I gotta call them tomorrow) until the end of October? I didn't? Well, now you know.
                                                             
                                                            It's just something to think about. Certainly, if people want to shop @ Groppi's they are welcome to do so. But this would be something different & we really need to enjoy the out of doors while we still can. Think about it, and think about what you'd want at both places. We can talk about it more in person, but you guys were tired of doing th same old thing, going to the same places we always go. The point of this tour was to broaden our horizons & get us out of our comfort zone (Jake's in my pajamas. *cough*).
                                                             
                                                            In case anyone is hungry by then:  11:30-ish
                                                            Riviera Maya

                                                            Milwaukee, WI 53207
                                                             
                                                            Then a lovely tour of a local distillery...did I mention it's FREE???!?!?!?!   --First tour begins @ 1pm, we're going for it!
                                                            Great Lakes Distillery, LLC
                                                            616 West Virginia Street
                                                            Milwaukee, WI 53204
                                                            Any other pumpkin fans here?
                                                            For $5 you can get samples. Not a requirement, just something good to know for those who don't click on the links.
                                                             
                                                            Then a trip to Glendale, for some GREEN RIVER, oops, I mean hotdogs & such. Carolina Bob, the plan is to be there by 2:30pm to meet you:
                                                            Dr Dawg
                                                            6969 N Port Washington Rd
                                                            Glendale, WI 53217
                                                             
                                                            Then Ann and I have planned a surprise stop.  All you need to know is--it's back on the South Side & we need to be there by 4ish.  You. Will. Love. It. No bribes will be accepted.

                                                             
                                                            After that: Ginger
                                                            235 S 2nd St
