A Summer of Dis-Contingent
I don't know what I did, but BuddyRoadhouse
has put me on his personal No Fly List
. First he declined my invitation to the 2014 edition of Smoke/Pie Day on May 24
. And then just today, Mr. Roadhouse categorically stated that he will not join me at the Contingent Takes Sheboygan Eat & Greet
if it occurs on June 21
. His excuse each time, he'll be washing his hair in Cleveland.
For everyone else, the REAL Pie Day
will be celebrated at our home in Pewaukee on May 24
are invited. More details will follow in this thread or you can PM for directions at any time.
As for the Sheboygan event, the date is still up in the air and polling is ongoing. The text MilwFoodLover's
original PM about the event is below:
This week a friend took me to the single most enjoyable sandwich stop in my life. http://www.gossesrestaurant.com/
Gosses is an unassuming tavern in an unassuming neighborhood but the sandwiches rock. They were so good that if we were to do a tour of Sheboygan I could see making this both our first and our last stop. We sampled cheeseburgers, pork chop sandwiches, "restaurant' steaks (a cross between a minute steak and a rib-eye), and of course the double brat. Each sandwich was charcoal broiled, laced with "a generous amount of butter, and served on a City Bakery hard roll. I was happier with these humble sandwiches than with the finest USDA prime steak. They also are known for home made soups, Broasted chicken ("best I ever had" said one-untried by me) and lake perch.
Wisconsin folks know that many of us find that http://miesfelds.com/wp/ is certainly in the top 3 meat markets in the state and few would argue that http://www.sheboygancitybakery.com/ have the best hard rolls in the Dairy State.
Just a few blocks form Gosses is the Old Wisconsin Sausage factory outlet store http://www.oldwisconsin.com/ The factory outlet store is located at 2107 South 17th Street, Sheboygan, WI 53081. There are some bargains to be had; for example I bought ten 1oz. packages of their salami for a buck. They have an excellent natural casing coarse ground wiener but it is not a top tier sausage maker when compared to Usingers or even Klements. Still it would be worth a stop for possible bargains.
Sheboygan has a frozen custard stop connected to a Harley Davidson dealer http://www.cruisersfrozencustard.com/ and that too is worth a stop. Sheboygan has a nice lakefront area and weather permitting we could stretch our legs.
I'm thinking maybe a mid-May Saturday? Comments, thoughts and suggestions.
I suggested adding a stop at Midway Eat for my favorite burger and a cheese run to Cedar Valley Cheese for incredible string cheese.
More details soon to come.
