q,
You may need to put the word out on Facebook for some of the Contingent members who don't pay as close attention to this thread as they should.  I'd do it myself, but I'm not a FB kinda guy.

      I have a birthday party on Saturday.
      Sunday, if you eat a sit-down dinner somewhere, someone please let me know where and text or call me and I will try to join you.

        Being that the head honcho is out of town until the 27th, no member of the Pfefferclan will be attending. I hope sometime soon the date for a get-together and Papa Pfeff being home will coincide.

          I'm in for Sunday, and if anyone's doing something on Saturday, lemme know- I'd probably be up for that, assuming things don't change during the week.

          ETA: I wouldn't mind a trip to The Elegant Farmer on Saturday- we're out of our favorite popcorn!

              I won't be available for Saturday, what with the Global Union and Bay View Bash. The weather looks great. Sunday I should be at some if not all of the choices, all of which look like winners. X1 and Gyp made a recent stop at Glorioso's where they got a Human Torch shown below. The Milwaukee Muffeletta is similar but not spicy like the Torch.

                Hello. I work Saturday at 4PM and I'm off Sunday. So count me in for anything that doesn't happen after 4PM on Saturday.
                Thanks for the FB heads up Q.

                  I'm hungry and that picture of the muffaletta is killing me!

                    That muffaletta does look wonderful, I have never had one grilled before, but I would think that would be AWESOME!!

                      That is The Human Torch, not a Muffuletta, although it does include the Muffuletta olive salad on it.
                       
                      But still very delicious!
                       
                      Also - it's not grilled, so no idea where that came from.

                          Please count  me in for two on Sunday. Happy to have this opportunity to meet The Contingent and see something of Milwaukee. Thanks for the heads-up on Facebook.
                           
                           Where do we meet you?

                            Hi laz,
                            Glad to hear you can make it. We'll meet 10:30-11:00ish at Glorioso's Italian Market at 1011 E. Brady St., on Milwaukee's East Side. Where will you be coming from? I'll post basic directions in a day or two. The market isn't too terribly big, so you'll see people entering and milling around, but at around 10:45-10:55 or so I'll be at the seating area (just to the left as you enter the store), and that's where we'll congregate (I'll probably get to the market a little earlier than 10:45, but will probably browse around for a few minutes). If all goes well, we'll take a quick trip over to Peter Sciortino's (a block away) for some Italian cookies and other bakery items before heading off to the Doors Open sites.

                              12:00-1:00  visit and/or and/or

                               
                              I just want  to point out that there's a pretty good tavern, the Swinging Door Exchange, in the Grain Exchange. I've only been there once, for fish fry, but we enjoyed it and other menu items looked good.

                                Yeah, it's official, can't make this one.  I'll be on my way to Park Falls to spend a week up there with some buddies.  Have fun, people!  .0/  Please post pics!

                                  Here are some directions for getting to Glorioso's from the south:
                                   
                                  1. Take Interstate 94W into Wisconsin and head toward Milwaukee (north)
                                   
                                  2. When you hit the Marquette Interchange ("spaghetti junction") downtown, continue onto I-43 N (toward Green Bay) via the left-hand lanes on I-94.
                                   
                                  3. Take exit 73A for WI 145 S toward McKinley Ave. (This is the McKinley Ave exit.)  Turn right onto WI 145 S/ W Fond du Lac Ave (following the signs to get to McKinley Ave.).
                                   
                                  4. Continue onto W McKinley Ave. (You should be heading east!)
                                   
                                  5. As you cross the bridge (over the Milwaukee River), McKinley becomes E Knapp Ave, and slightly veers to the left.
                                   
                                  6. Turn left on N Water St.
                                   
                                  7. Water St. follows the river (imagine that), and eventually takes you to Brady St. Continue onto Brady St.
                                   
                                  8. Go east on Brady St.  Glorioso's will be to your right; it's on the corner of E Brady and N Astor.  If you've gone past Humboldt Ave., you've gone too far.

                                    So we're doing Sunday only with Quijote's itinerary that was on page 2 right?

                                    I'm still in and also can provide a ride for Ann Peeples if that works out for her.

                                      Hi Gyp and All,
                                       
                                      Yes, the main event is Sunday, starting with Glorioso's at 10:30-11:30.
                                       
                                      I know that the Buddy Roadhouses will be in Mke on Saturday, but I'm not sure they're following the itinerary posted. You and others may want to contact them about what they're doing on Saturday. Around midday I plan to call them to get together, so be sure to be in touch with them and with me throughout the day.

                                        I'm not sure if we're coming up tomorrow (Saturday)- I came down with a cold yesterday and I'd like to increase my chances of getting better by Sunday and reduce my exposure to others.

                                          Okay--if we see you, we see you; if not, take care and get rid of that cold. We hope to see you Sunday. Pupusas are waiting for you.

                                            Hello fellow Contingencies,
                                            We're here in Milwaukee (technically Brookfield), and ready for a wild weekend in your fab town.
                                             
                                            Just tell us where we're starting and what time to be there (I believe Jake's between 11:00 and noon.  Confirmation please) and we're in for the long haul.
                                             
                                            Buddy

                                              Hi Buddy,
                                               
                                              You may be the only ones going to Jake's this morning, though Gyp expressed an interest in doing stuff today. My other half and I will be joining up later in the day; we'll give you a call. See you then!

                                                I  guess when you read about an 11 am meet-up at 11, you probably can't be at Jakes at 11. I've got to shower and then we are heading to  the Bay View Bash for some Korean tacos. Only 2 bands really interest me at Global Union, a mystical Pakistani Sufi singing group at 2, followed by my personal don't miss group, the Masonic Wonders at 3:30. Miss Beth will not miss her Green Bay Packers battling the Cincinnati Bengals at noon on Sunday but may join us at 4 after the game. I will be on Brady Street at 10:30 and I'm in for the long haul.

                                                    Apologies. Sadly, I must cancel due to an injury. Hope to meet you all next time.

                                                          Great trip today, everybody!  Thanks to Q for organizing it!

                                                          Hopefully, the Chicago trip will go as well (and have weather as perfect!)

                                                          So, without further adieu, here are the architectural sites my dad and I have picked out.  

                                                          This is for the weekend of October 19th and 20th.

                                                          As you can see, most of the sites are the south and west sides of the city.  If you click on each point on the map, there is a link to the description of the site and it's noted if they aren't open both days. 
                                                           
                                                          We're still working out the restaurants we'd go to for the neighborhoods.  If anyone has any suggestions, please do share them.  If anyone has strong feelings about any of the sites, share that as well!   ETA: To be clear, we don't expect to go to all of those sites- we will be picking and choosing.

                                                          The sites that aren't open both days are closed on Sunday.  The Robie House (Frank Lloyd Wright house) is open both days, but just for their normal tours on Saturday and only for Open House Chicago on Sunday.  I believe that would mean there is a fee to go in on Saturday: $15 adult, $12 student and senior (65+), but none on Sunday.  If we want to go to the Robie House, I'll confirm the details about that.

                                                            Echoing Thanks to quijote for organizing and MilwFoodlovers for inspiring today's tour!  I'd say it was a screaming success with a wide array of fascinating building tours coupled with some dang tasty grub.
                                                             
                                                            Starting with sandwiches, salads, and finger foods from Glorioso's Italian Market and brilliant baked goods from Peter Sciortino's bakery, we then hit a few building sites before snacking on Chili late in the afternoon.  From there, a few more building tours and a final meal at El Salvador.  We chowed down on a variety of Pupusas, Tamales, and Baleadas.  Mrs. MFL joined the group at the restaurant, bringing with her a delicious Birthday Cake for Mr. MFL.
                                                             
                                                            It was a great day that sets the bar high for the Chicago architectural tour in October.  We'll do our best to live up to the promise.  Hope you'll all join us for the day.
