Just got back from Wisconsin, land of brats, Friday Fish Fry, lots of beer, and the Green Bay Packers.
Found an amazing Victorian painting from an antique store in Cederburg. It looks like it belongs in a museum. They didn't know the artist-it is signed and dated 1846 or so. It's perfect piece for the restaurant, though. We need to get it appraised from a professional, because I have a feeling it's worth a couple tons more than we paid for it. We also have to get it here from Wisconsin. Might involve a road trip......
Lots of highlights from the trip-Amy's brothers' wedding at the Kohler Art Center, lunch at Sheboygon Elementary School ( It was Grandparent's Day, but our niece Kelsey got special permission to have Amy and me join the kids for lunch). Lunch was everything a school kid would dream of-noodles, ham, creamed corn, applesauce, rolls and...chocolate milk! Can't remember the last time I was in an elementary school cafeteria. Awesome. Lots of ideas for our menu as well.. :)
Also saw George Carlin at the casino. At 70, he's still got that fire, and I am happy to say he has not toned down his show one bit.
Today I have to work on a "plan review" which I have to submit to the health department. I can hardly wait to report on this one.
