  • Did you guys ever shop or eat at Live Oak Market downtown Appleton when it was open? That was my place.

    Knew of it, was in the store once. We don't spend much time downtown, but should spend more, lots of great local places on the ave. With kids, its just easier to go to the "box" resturants. Not that there are any shortage of those in the area. Since getting the bge our out to eat meals has gone way down.

    :P

    My daughter went to MIAD for four years in Milwaukee. We made a couple of visits a year and enjoyed the breweries, the beers, the food, not really the weather, but mostly the people. We laughed a lot and my daughter made a lot of life long friends and contacts. I thought Milwaukee would be some rust belt town (I'm from Detroit area and live in West Palm Beach now) but it was closer to being Ann Arbor than anything. Light beer???? Are you kidding?????
  • You know that you have entered Wisconsin when it's Friday night and the local Volunteer Fire Department is having a Fish Boil/Fry.  God Bless them all for their service to the public

    Ya know you're in WI, when every place serves fish on Friday night but it's hard to find a place that serves fish on Saturday night.

    Ya know you're in WI, when every other sentence ends in 'yet' and every other, other sentence ends in 'once yet'......

    You know you are in Wisconsin when your bartender knows how to make a brandy old fashion. 

    Fat is tasty, everything else is filler.

    It will amaze a person how many different ways there are to gamble at most bars.

    I've been to Jacobs market. Stopped by there between a wedding and reception a couple years ago. My egg guy is in Evansville, so I haven't hit the Appleton area for egg stuff. Cen-Tex, I thought you did work with Blaine's? Farm and Fleet, rather than Fleet Farm. Now there's an addition to the list -- you know you're from Wisconsin if you know there's a difference between Farm and Fleet, and Fleet Farm. (Actually, the stores are pretty close to the same...)

    I have worked with both and know both families very well. Great people and unbelievable businesses. Don't let the "Fleet Farm" look fool you. They are all hundred millionaires.
    Do more than my fair share of keeping bread on the Blain family table.  Love that damn store.

    Did you guys ever shop or eat at Live Oak Market downtown Appleton when it was open? That was my place.
    Wow, small world!  I'm guessing we've probably met.  I work a few blocks from there and used to eat there 2-3 times a month, loved the Boar's head sandwiches...

    I work at a place called ADCi, we sell maps for computer software (rent an office on the corner of Division and College Ave).
    Yeah, we were really bummed about the closing too.  Downtown Appleton is tough, have seen a lot of restaurants come and go over the years.  You never know what's going to make it and what isn't.

    My neighbor worked at somethinglike that. Karen Sheel?

  • This is my favorite thread in quite a while, haha! 

    You guys are making me miss the hell out of Madison though, maybe it's time for a visit...

    I was there for graduate school and can't wait to find a good way to get back. San Diego is nice, but too much samey-same weather for me, I actually miss the snow (I know, I know, I'm crazy). 

    Plus, as mentioned above, the people are wonderful and the schools are excellent; great place to raise a family. 

    Any Wisocnsinites looking for a product manager in the biotech industry?

    next time you have a dirty snowball at Cleo's, raise a glass to CenTex. I'll be up there in a few months. I'll PM you and we'll grab a beer if you are available.
