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 and home made tortes.
 
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 from 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. http://www.visitsheboygan.com/ Nestled between Sheboygan and Milwaukee is Port Washington. it too could be a Roadfood get together but for this trip I'd recommend a stop at Ewing Brothers, one of the last of the Wisconsin fish markets http://ewigsmokedfish.com/
 
Thanks to Abe_Froeman we have a Doodle poll http://www.doodle.com/rdvkxhcrck9rnfcb This is one of those things where everyone has good dates, bad dates and no way, sorry dates. We will try to do this majority rules. Beth prolly won't join us if after April
 
Jim,  Bobbi, Beth and I will do a strictly research only scouting expedition on Friday March 7th at noon. Anyone free may join us. Mrs MFL and I just came back from dining at a Serbian owned tavern, Moonshine,  in Milwaukee where we sampled both a spinach and cheese and also a beef burek and we feel since it almost across the street from Leon's Frozen Custard that it should be an optional last stop on the tour.  All are welcome. We are available for car sharing X!

Here's some more detailed directions on the doodle.com thing:

Ok, we have the Doodle.com survey set up.  May 24th, Smoke Day, has been excluded.

Click on this link: 

http://www.doodle.com/rdvkxhcrck9rnfcb 
  
Because there's so many potential dates, it sort of collapses the options- you have to click the button near the top that says "Show all 12 options". 

Type your name into the "Participants" box on the left side. 

For each day, select "Yes", "No", or "(Yes)", which indicates you could do it, but it's not an ideal date for you.  

Make sure you hit "Save". 

You can also leave a comment underneath!

I like this idea a lot for a Contingent outing.  I'd love to explore these places.  I'll be watching this thread and hope this pans out!

A few additional stops on the tour for consideration.


 
The Midway Restaurant on Hwy 57 in Random Lake is home of the famous Midway Eat sign and the fabulous Homestyle Burger. The Homestyle Burger is one of my favorite burgers in the state and I finally have an opportunity to drag the Contingent there.


 
Cedar Valley Cheese Company is 2 miles south on Hwy 57 in Belgium. Ann Peeples told us about CV Cheese while dining at a German restaurant (Wienerschnitzel, I believe) with my close friend Wanderingjew several years ago. They set the standard for string cheese.

Fireworks Popcorn is on the way back to Milwaukee in Port Washington and would make another convenient stop.

Just to clarify, it's Cedar Valley Cheese that's 2 miles south of Random Lake, not Belgium itself.
 
Random Lake's not much out of the way for me because WI-144 heads west and southwest out of town, making it a reasonable pre or post-tour stop.
 
Also south of Random Lake is the Five Pillars Supper Club but some of the Urbanspoon reviews aren't exactly flattering!

I'll post some of Mike's pictures, while he figures it out.
 
Bobbi, Martin and I met Mike and Beth for the Spring Training Warm-up for Gosse's.

 
There was no exaggeration by Mike, these are really good sandwiches. I love this one of my steak sandwich. That is NOT mayo on the bun top. It's BUTTER!

 
I think the pistachio tort was my favorite.

 
Or maybe the Red Velvet.

 
Mike - Please explain this.

 
This will not be the last warning. Bring cash to Gosse's.

That mystery meat was a bratbrot, a stuffed with loose bratwurst meat and seasonings  palm sized bread. Much lighter than  pasties and City Bakery said it was very similar to their fleischbrots which explained everything.  it knocked my socks off, leaving me with cold feet for my ride home. They were out of hard roll bread which is something I may request they make extra loaves of for our tour. We took  no pictures of the Old Wisconsin outlet store but they had bargains and didn't have much of what they offered just last week. It's only a few blocks away so I think we need to include it on our tour. City Bakery is on the opposite end of town but Sheboygan isn't that big. Those with coolers will want to bring them as Miesfelds Triangle Market is certainly as good as Glen's in Watertown which everyone loved and it too is on the north side. Now Jim, where are the pictures of the Drumstick Torte, Chocolate Éclair Torte, and the Poppyseed Torte?

Mike - After we parted ways at the Old Wisconsin outlet store, we drove to Cedar Valley Cheese, passing Midway Eat on the way. Both are a very easy drive from Sheboygan - head west on Hwy 28, turn south on Hwy 57 and you are on the way to each of these stops. We left Cedar Valley with over 6 pounds of string cheese.

It's looking like May 3rd is shaping up to be the day.
 
It's got full approval, including one out-of-towner (CNW), and only one dissenter (CarolinaBob, who looks like he's unavailable the entire summer).  We're missing responses only from stricken_detective and ann peeples.
 
So, shall we put May 3rd on the calendar?
 
Buddy
 
P.S. Rather than drive up from Chicago on the 3rd, we'll probably go up the day before and book a hotel.  Anyone else interested in some pre-tour activities Friday night?

It's been written on mine for some time now.  In permanent marker, no less.
 
Maybe things will change for Bob and he can make it; we haven't seen him for some time.  Even better would be if we could get some new faces like Pancho, Danimal, and anyone else from the Madison-Milwaukee-Chicago triangle.
 
I'm contemplating the possibility of an overnight stay even though it's only 2-1/2 hours from home, but I'm leaning more toward Saturday night in case we make a really full day of it.  I'd rather drive up in the morning; that 2-1/2 hours will seem a lot longer at the end of the day.

For most folks that's probably true.  But when you're used to working a 2p-10p shift, that morning drive is a killer.  Driving home at night is no problem.  We might even make a few more stops on the way home.  Any good 4am bars in Milwaukee?

I'm heading off to St. Louis this week. When I return I'll do whatever it takes firm our plans up. Jim, you have any supper clubs in mind? The bulk of Wisconsin's supper clubs pretty much start north and west of Sheboygan and I'd hate to add extra distance for our Chicago friends. I've never been to any of these but has anyone sampled the Walden-A Supper Club just out of West Bend? The Five Pillars near Random Lake? Majerle's Black River Grill in Sheboygan? Rupp's in Sheboygan? Close to home is Diamond Jim's Stoneridge Inn in Hales Corners. I can vouch for the quality but there is no included salad bar, which for some might be a deal breaker. Dobie's Steak House in X1's home town of St. Francis is a real throwback. You get a Lazy Susan that includes corn, slaw, liver pate, 3 bean salad and something else I'm forgetting. I've had nothing but good experiences here. It's very close to the airport and thus close to I-94 (and the Nite Owl, but that will probably be closed for the evening).

Re:Sheboygan aka Sheeptown in Spring 2014/04/20 18:36:14
Excellent idea. I propose
Schwai's 11:30 Fredonia http://schwaismeatandsausage.com/
Cedar Valley Cheese Noon Random Lake http://cedarvalleycheesestore.com/
Midway Eats 12:30 Random Lake https://www.facebook.com/pages/Midway-Restaurant/192066737502585
City Bakery  1:15 Sheboygan http://www.sheboygancitybakery.com/
Old Wisconsin 1:30 Sausage Outlet Sheboygan http://www.oldwisconsin.com/ 
Gosse's 2 pm Sheboygan http://www.gossesrestaurant.com/
Cruiser's  2:45 Sheboygan http://www.cruisersfrozencustard.com/  Skipable if we have dessert at Gosse's.
Ewing Brothers 3:30 Port Washington http://ewigsmokedfish.com/ Excellent, but really not comparable to the two we visited in Chicago. It would be a good time killer.
Dobie's 5 pm Milwaukee http://www.allmenus.com/wi/st-francis/184955-dobies-steak-house/menu/   It's a very small place. We would need a reservation and we would need to be on time. Like Burt's, they could not hold our tables nor afford us no showing. It's such a throwback dining choice what with the little lazy susan and all. Even though it's name includes steak, much of the menu is everything but steak. This place is minute's from the airport and I-94. It is also near Layton Avenue and if anyone wanted to, they could drive to 76th & Layton, the home of Kopp's Frozen Custard.


There is a small upcharge for their hash browns and I'd recommend one order per table.

 I confess I'm at a little loss as to killing time between lunch and dinner. We could walk on the new pier in Port (Washington, but no one really uses more than Port). It's only about 4 or 5 blocks from Ewing Brothers. Also, this just popped up. There is Bernie's Meat Market downtown Port; close to the pier, close to Ewing Brothers. Bernie's was purchased by Steve Bennet who apprenticed to Frank Jakubczak who Roadfooders know as the semi-retired owner of Milwaukee's favorite small butcher shop, European Fine Meats on Muskego Ave. His wife's uncle is in fact Frank. Now I've never gone here but I see he has many of the same offering as Frank such as fresh and smoked Slovenian and Hungarian sausage. http://www.berniesfinemeats.com/  
  
 
Port is 30 to 45 minutes from Milwaukee, another 15 minutes to Dobie's. So, if this is going to happen we'll need a head count.

I believe they too are cooked over charcoal. They use a City Bakery hard roll that is crispy. No one that I know that lives in the area has given Cruiser's a shout out. Maybe they never tried them. In Curdistan we are free to eat wherever we want.

I didn't look at this before. LTH Forum weighs in on Sheboygan.
http://www.lthforum.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=397794
If we wanted to make 3 butcher shop stops, we could squeeze in Miesfeld's, my  favorite butcher shop. I'm thinking that most Roadfooders have been there. They've expanded greatly and are now just north of town and certainly doable. Like Glen's Meat Market in Watertown, they have a charity shed during the summer where Girl or Boy Scouts, volunteer firemen, etc. charcoal grill Miesfeld brats to raise money.

That LTH Sheboygan thread includes a contribution from Da Beef, who posts here at Roadfood under the name King T.  His work is outstanding, and his taste and ability to find interesting, off-the-beaten-path stuff is unparalleled.  Not to take anything away from our own well traveled group leaders, but I'd go anywhere he recommends.
 
Are we definitely starting at Schwai's?  Because I've been bidding on hotel rooms in Sheboygan up until now.  If we're starting in Fredonia, I'll start looking in Port Washington.

Are we definitely starting at Schwai's?  Because I've been bidding on hotel rooms in Sheboygan up until now.  If we're starting in Fredonia, I'll start looking in Port Washington.

Yes.  I think it makes the most sense for the greatest number of people.
Staying in Port would save you 20 miles and 20 minutes.
A couple sometimes goes to Jamaica with us. They recently opened a bar, Alley Katz,  in  downtown Port. http://www.visitportwashington.com/tourism/eat_shop_play/?category0=Eat+-+Casual+Dining&category1=Eat+-+Deli's%2C+Coffee+%26+Cafe's&category2=Eat+-+Ethnic&category4=Eat+-+Fine+Dining+&category8=Play+-+Night+life They have a little kitchen and his sandwiches come with 6 made from scratch sauces and he often has music on the weekends. I think a walk out on the pier should either start or end with a visit to Newport Shores which offers food (almost a supper club) and drink with a view. I like this place very much. My closest friend (who has tried to get me to Gosse's for years) lives in Port. If that's where you are staying, I can get you more things to do with all the particulars. I have a farewell party for two close former workers on Friday or we would have joined you in town.

Excellent idea. I propose
Schwai's 11:30 Fredonia http://schwaismeatandsausage.com/
As I'm generally an early riser this might me a chance for a pre-tour stop or 2, possibly in West Bend (George Webb!) or other points southwest.
ALL GOOD

The Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan is a decent enough place to stay.  I don't know about price range.  I've only been there on the company dime....but it wasn't too bad.

We have obligations in Mke in the morning and a concert in Mke in the evening, so we (2) should be able to have dinner at Dobie's. We'll have to be out by 6:30, though, so we'll order as soon as we get there.
 
There's a chance we can meet up in Sheboygan for a couple of hours in the early afternoon, but we'll have to wait until the day itself to know for sure.

Good news Q. We look forward to seeing you. I had better luck when you lived on the other side of town.

Bumping the thread. Saturday is supposed to be mixed sun and cloud with a temp of 51 degrees (brr). I'd like to make a reservation at Dobie's for 5 pm. I have a head count of 16.
I'll call Wednesday. I'll also ask about any chance of separate checks. If you've changed your mind please let me know. If you've never joined us, jump on in, the water's fine.
