I will be in Milwaukee for a few days before Thanksgiving. Would anyone (Lake Surfer, finkdaddy, others?) be interested in meeting Tuesday evening, Nov 21, at the Foundation Lounge (2718 N. Bremen Street) for their Tiki Nite?

I will also be in Milwaukee Monday and Wednesday evenings, if that works well for anyone too.

Vern

I would love to! Only thing is, my wife works at night on Monday through Wednesday, so I'll see if she can shuffle her schedule around and I'll get back to you.

If anything maybe one of those nights you could come over to my Leeward Lounge for a couple of cocktails?

Vern, good to hear you're coming to town!

I'd love to have some drinks with you at Foundation! I'll have Don roll out the red carpet for you that night!

Seriously though, they've got a great drink menu going now and Don is serious about the drinks.

I've done a bit of decor lately and there should be more when you're in town... just finishing up some this week.

There are a few cool vintage shops by my house also you might want to check out... and if you have time to pop in you can see the progress on my bar.

Of course, you can't miss Finkdaddy's place either!

PM me your trip info if you get a chance... there are a few other tiki hot spots I can show you seeing as how you're in town for three nights... a run to Kenosha to The Rendezvous might be in order also!

Ever been to At Random? That's a good place to get a good drink too!

I am coming to Wisconsin to spend a week with family. One brother lives near UW-M (on Cramer Street, and walking distance to the Foundation), so I will be spending 3 nights with him and his family, and then driving with them to visit our parents and other siblings the rest of the week.

I will be flying into Milwaukee late Monday afternoon (the 20th) and we will be driving north on Thursday morning..... so I basically have Monday evening, and all day Tuesday and Wednesday for Milwaukee and SE Wisconsin area adventures -- pretty much a blank slate to work with. I'm hoping my brother will have an extra vehicle for me to use - or I may consider getting a rental car while I am in Milwaukee.

I will be out of town on a business trip all of this week, but will be back in VA Friday - so will recheck this thread and my private messages when I return.

Good to see tiki happening in Wisconsin!

Vern

Sounds like a busy itinerary, but remember you have an open invite at the Congatiki Lounge.
We don't need much of an excuse to whip up a little get together.

How about meeting at the Foundation at 8:00 pm on Tuesday evening, the 28th. Will this work for most of you?

I would love to, but my wife works second shift so I'm with the kids at that time. Have fun though, the Foundation is a great place and what Lake Surfer says is true: the drinks are fabulous, especially the Mai Tai!

If any of you want to come over to the Leeward Lounge on one of those nights, just let me know and I'll stock up on limes!

I'm there!

Tuesday at 8:00.

And Tipsy, if you want to ride with me, PM me.
We can stop at Rendez'vous (the 'pirate bar' in Kenosha) on the way home.

Anyone want to hit At Random too?
Vern, that's a must-see if you haven't been there yet.

In.

Already told Don to expect us on Tuesday.

In for At Random too before hand as Tiki Tuesday at Foundation really starts to take off at 9:30 or so.

Vern, you'll love At Random.

AT RANDOM Local review:

Camp, Kitsch, and Cocktails
Posted by IIII on 09/03/2002
GO HERE! This place is just too much fun to explain. Where do i start. First of all, they do not take plastic or checks. They do not serve beer, wine, or shots. They do make you pay for your drinks up front. That said, this is the most interesting place to drink I have ever been. The decor is original 60's kitschy lounge. The music is crooners and rat pack standards. This place makes tiki drinks, makes them strong, and serves them with fire and umbrellas. They've got ice cream drinks and fruit flavored concoctions chock full of 151 proof rum. Too much fun to explain here, just go!

Pros: Real Camp, Real Kitsch, Really old staff
Cons: none
Overall user rating: Highly Recommended




Foundation: New website up and running...

I made it to Milwaukee - had my brother drive by 'At Random' from the airport, but it was closed on Mondays (and Sundays too), otherwise it opens at 7.

Still on for 8:00 at Foundation later today.

Vern

Hey guys, we have been looking for an excuse to head back up north, mind if we meet up with you at the foundation? Just Raj and I.
I've gotta look up the address and mapquest it, but I'm sure we'll find it.

I am coming from another state.

You can drive across yours.

Get in the car and go.
