Browns Lake 2009

Spent another long weekend at Browns Lake, Burlington WI. Arrived Friday afternoon, unloaded, hung out and opened up the boat.

Headed out to Charcoal Grill, on the Fox River in town. We decided to sit outside, and it was warm, not too, low breeze, and sundown. Perfect. With the river a few feet away.

On the way out we asked the waitress about a custard stand someone at work mentioned. She pointed and said “Adrian’s. Right there”. We literally drove around the corner, and pulled into an old fashioned family ice cream stand.

I ordered a medium cone of vanilla. Good and huge. Sat on the table out in front and watched the kids and grandparents come out of Echo Park across the street after the band concert.

Then off to get the fishing licenses at Reineman’s.

Next day up early to prepare all the food for the onslaught and the 50th Wedding Anniversary party for the parents. Things went well, only one trip to the food store required.

Next day, golf at the Browns Lake Golf Course down the road. Hop in the boat.

Note to self: boat gas is 50:1 mix.

8/3: Went to BJ Wentker’s, a small restauarant in a pointy building in Burlington. We had been once in the winter a few years ago, but dragged my parents along. Luck with us: 1/2 price Wine Bottles – Rosenblum Paso Robles ($36). Nice. Some Brie Wraps ($8) for appetizer – Dad even liked. Mom and I had the Cowboy Ribeyes – a little chewy but very tasty ($24). Dad had the NY Strip – can’t miss ($28). Gorgeous old bar, wonderful restored building. Nice place. Recommended.
