I could always just stick to I-43 and go for cheese and porno.

And don't forget fireworks!

But seriously, you'll be fine in most parts of Racine or Kenosha. Just avoid the protest areas and "hot zones" if that's what you need to do.

And when you're in Kenosha, don't forget to visit Tenuta's, one of the best Italian markets in the Midwest.

I'm still mourning the closing of Karl Ratzschs'.

Ratzsch's in Milwaukee was my go to for the holidays for thirty years. Had to reserve Christmas Eve/Day a month or more in advance. Same w/Thanksgiving. Always packed. New owners 'modernized' ambience and food - no carpets, no tablecloths - no idea how to do Old Milwaukee German food, hired young waitstaff who knew nothing, Ratsch's old mainstays gone - and lost the business within a year. Damn shame. I had so many wonderful meals at Ratsch's - remember going there on dates almost sixty years ago - in-house pianist, then.

Mader's on Third Street no substitute, imo. Don't like buffets and food is average.

Ratsch's roost goose on Christmas ......

(Nothing against Wausau, just using it as an example for climate purposes.)

Is Wausau Insurance still there?

We were patrons of the Florentine Opera during the years we lived in the area, and any opera night always began with a meal at Ratzsch's. Some years later after we had left Milwaukee, I mentioned to the spouse about becoming supporters of the local opera troupe where we now live and she confessed that she never really cared about the opera, it was more about going to Ratzsch's.

I totally understood.

Looks like Liberty Mutual bought them out from what I can see. Funny, I can't imagine emus liking that climate.



Maybe I should have said Tomahawk?
