Great Lakes Beer Dinner and Morning Roundup

Praise for the big portions, great service, and generous porn selection at Stockmen’s Truck Stop, a look at Crispin’s new imported English cider in a can, a celebration of the nonprofit CityKid organization and its cocoa, a cassoulet-making odyssey in a new blue Le Creuset, the 3rd annual Well Fed Awards need your votes for best restaurant, a Great Lakes beer dinner at the Hanger Room, Perennial Plate visits the Marshall Farm where they’re raising (and, uh, harvesting) bunnies, tickets are on sale for the Beer Dabbler Showcase at the Winter Carnival, and is mac and cheese the quintessential southern Wisconsin dish? (This badger would argue bratwurst.)
