| Rude in Mequon
This was my third visit to Mequon's relatively new Calderone Club at Mequon and Wawautosa Roads. My wife and I joined another couple for dinner Saturday night. We had reservations at 6:00PM and were promptly seated when we arrived. We had a nice meal and finished a little after...

| Where's the Love in Cudahy?
I hope my generation of eastsiders continue to buy homes south of downtown. Why stop in Bay View though? Cudahy and St. Francis are just as close to the lake and have very cute houses. They would be great for corner coffee shops and bistro's too. Keep moving ...

| A slice of diner heaven in Kenosha, WI.
A few weekends ago, we saddled up the wagon and headed down to Illinois to go antiquing. Ended up buying a few cool things- pottery, 1950's serving dish, 1940's menus and just having a laugh or two. We were looking for some place new to dine in the SE Wisconsin area- we found Frank's ...

| that's disgusting
Well, I sort of swayed from one of my resolutions already. Ah, who am I kidding. I failed. Today as I was taking my daily drive with Waylon I realized we hadn't eaten yet and he needed to before he took his nap. I also noticed a coupon for a free happy meal in the passenger seat. So, I innoce...

| Peanut Butter
Ruby G's Espresso Bar & Cafe,21st and Wells, has a great new taste treat. Fresh ground peanut butter. In a sandwich, with celery,or even chips its great. Oh, and they serve coffee too.

| Great New BBQ in Waukesha
Having lived in Waukesha for the past three years, I often lament the lack of interesting dining choices in the land o' chains. We dine out a lot in Milwaukee, but sometimes you just want something close to home. Unfortunately, the options tend to run along the lines of steak houses...

| I stepped out of character
The sun was bright that Sunday morning. I showered, shaved and put on my selling suit and headed to Milwaukee's Eastside to show the vacuum of the future to my dear old friends Joe and Ani. We had an 8.30am appointment. I left with plenty of time, believing that my 7 years living in Milw...

| Sheboygan? Nah. On the web, brats center on Jefferson
I live in Jefferson, pop. 7,800. When you’re traveling along I-94 from Milwaukee to Madison, we’re five miles south of the Johnson Creek outlet mall you encounter about fifty miles west of Milwaukee. We’re in the bare spot between the sprawl creeping out from Waukesha and Madiso...

| Monsoon on Bluemound
I don't profess to be a food critic, however, as someone who enjoys cooking, has some sense of taste and works hard for their money I have a right to give my two cents. I am rarely impressed with what I eat at any restaurant, if anything I am usually disappointed. I do read the reviews written b...

| First Day at Cafe Hollander
Although at first I was sceptical about the new restaurant in the old Gil's location. I was pleasantly surprised by the incredible lax atmosphere and friendly service at Cafe Hollander. I enjoyed a cumin crusted tuna sandwich which was delicious and I would highly recommend. I a...
