Wow, I cannot believe that the end of July is a week away. Crazy how fast the time goes.
Anyway before I get all existential on you, let's get into this week's #Brotiquing!
I spent the weekend in De Pere/Green Bay and on my way out stopped at a place where I like to get my favorite veggie wrap (I'll allow a few minutes so you can pick your jaws up off the ground.).
I am not a vegetarian, but however I do like a good vegetarian dish and the place I've had thee BEST veggie wrap is Gallagher's. They have three locations in total, Green Bay East, Green Bay West and De Pere.
It comes with green pepper, brocolli, cauliflower, lettuce, all the cheese (melted to perfection) and Thousand Island dressing (But I opt for ranch instead).
However, I know that vegetarians are not the majority so I will recommend their pizza as well. They have SUPER good pizza and do a pizza lunch buffet during the week from 11:30am-1pm.
If you're not looking for wraps or pizza, they also have calzones and sandwiches along with non-Italian options such as salads, ribs or a fried chicken dinner.
The atmosphere at the De Pere location is really good for large parties or if you just wanna pony up to the bar alone.
This place is inviting, tasty and will not dominate your wallet. Go check it out and let me know what you think. And as always, if you have any suggestions, hit me up on Twitter and Shapcat @whatthechuck99.
I get it, it's pretty annoying when you listen to someone speak and they use "um" a lot.
But why punish yourself each time they do it?
That's exactly what is happening here. Ariana Grande is giving an acceptance speech and this genius decides that everytime she uses the word "um" they're going to eat a hot pepper. Well, it's more like taking bites of hot peppers. But still, why punish yourself.
About halfway through the video I think you can start to see the regret in their face, but they have something to prove! Until they give up.
It's time to see what's happenin' this weekend with another #OnTheGointhe92Oh. I know there's Paperfest going on in beautiful Sunset Park in Kimberly, which you definitely should hit up. However, if that's not your thing, I got your back.
Friday- I'm looking forward to the Green Bay Tap Takeover happening at Tanner's in Kimberly. Stillmark, Badger Brewing and Titlletown Brewery are taking over the taps outside on their Long Bar. They're not giving any hints as to what they're gonna have so the only way to find out is by going. It's on ALL weekend so if the rain holds off, head to their outside bar, have a great local beer and get poolside.
Saturday - A great local band, Jamie Fontaine & The Level are gonna give you some day time tunes as they take stage at Catch 22 in Green Bay. They start things off at 12 and go until 4 and two houirs later 2 Hour Notice is taking over. This all apart of their big outside bash that is celebrating the opening of their new corner bar. Beer brats and hamburgers will also be included. Food, music, beer AND outdoors. Sounds like a perfect recipe to me.
Sunday - One of my favorite places, Richard Craniums is having their 5th Year Anniversary/Customer Appreciation Celebration. It starts at noon and ends at 9pm. There's a corn roast that goes until 5, Reckless Remedy providing the music from 3-7 plus free giveaways EVERY HOUR. You'll definitely catch me here ALL DAY.
That's my take for the weekend. Of course, I am open to suggestions and love to see what other people are up to. Hit me up on Twitter & Snapchat @whatthechuck99.
Hello my thirsty friends and welcome to another edition of #ThirstyThursday. This week I am going to feature my favorite places that have live music.
Outdoor live music is huge for WIsconsin this time of year, because lets face it, we only get a fraction of the year to be able to enjoy that. These places either have music all year round or they go all in during the summer season.
One of my favorite places to see live music during the summer is Fox Harbor in Green Bay. They have a wonderful outdoor patio along the Fox River and feature live, fantastic band every Sunday during the summer. They have a full outdoor bar, firepit in case it gets chilly and serve food outside. One of my favorite dark horse features about this place is the bathroom is convenietnly located equidistance between both bars. It is certainly a perfect place to go Sunday Funday it up.
Another outdoor favorite is the Sardine Can in Green Bay. They feature live music outside quite frequently. Usually Wednesday's after the Broadway Farmer's Market, Saturday night and Sunday afternoons. The name is a perfect fit for the place because this outdoor patio gets PACKED as if you're in a sardine can. However, that should not deter anyone from having a good time. Have a drink and get to know your neighbor! Before I took up nights, one of my favorite things to do during the summer was to hit up the Farmer's Market and then walk on down to see the live music.
The final place I want to feature is Short Branch in Neenah. This place has a nicely remodeled stage both inside AND outside. The outside stage is in the beautiful back patio area that features a full bar and plenty of seating. The inside portion does get a little snug, but the clientele is fantastic. They usually have some pretty great specials going on and the service is friendly. BONUS: I know I did my Bloody Mary post a couple of weeks ago, but this place would certainly make the list now. Fantastic Bloody Mary's on Sunday'.
There's this week's list. If you have anything to add or recommend, I love suggestions and an open to trying new places. If you wanna hit me up, add me on Snapchat or Twitter @whatthechuck99.
92.9 and 95.9 KISS FM (WKSZ/WKZY) is a Top 40 radio station licensed to De Pere, Wisconsin that serves Green Bay, Appleton and The Fox Cities. The station is owned by Woodward Communications.
