For the sixth straight year, October is Dining Month on, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2012."

Maybe this is something that happens to you as you age, but several people I know are fond of playing the "what if there was just one..." game. As in, "what if there was just one sport you could watch the rest of your life?" or "what if there was just one movie you could see the rest of your life?"

But what about a meal? Kind of like a food bucket list, but not a list. Only one thing on the list. So, what if there was just one meal you could eat the rest of your life, what would it be?

The temptation is to limit it to one thing, like a steak. But this question includes a meal, which is an entree, sides and maybe even a dessert. The question is a lot harder than it seems.

But my answer is pretty much locked into place and has been for many years.

Mine would be a cheeseburger and crispy fries from Solly's followed by a glass of milk and their fresh Door County cherry pie. I know eating it every meal wouldn't be that healthy, but at least I'd die a happy man.

Any other suggestions?

With a history in Milwaukee stretching back decades, Dave tries to bring a unique perspective to his writing, whether it's sports, politics, theater or any other issue.

He's seen Milwaukee grow, suffer pangs of growth, strive for success and has been involved in many efforts to both shape and re-shape the city. He's a happy man, now that he's quit playing golf, and enjoys music, his children and grandchildren and the myriad of sports in this state. He loves great food and hates bullies and people who think they are smarter than everyone else.

This whole Internet thing continues to baffle him, but he's willing to play the game as long as keeps lending him a helping hand. He is constantly amazed that just a few dedicated people can provide so much news and information to a hungry public.

Despite some opinions to the contrary, Dave likes most stuff. But he is a skeptic who constantly wonders about the world around him. So many questions, so few answers.
