    Celebration! Sunday 19AUG @ Sherman Perk in Milwaukee

    Mark your calendars:
    Sherman Perk Coffee Shop
    49th & Roosevelt, in Milwaukee (slightly north of St. Joseph's Hospital at 50th & Burleigh)
    Sunday 19AUG
    2-5pm

    I'm renting the venue for a few hours after they're closed to throw a party & say thank you.
    If you want to come a bit earlier, that's fine.
    There is a school nearby, but of course there's no marking as to where the 1000' line is, so if you don't have a permission slip, & want to be armed, park in the parking lot.
    Bob (the owner) requests that people OC, but it's not required & you won't get in trouble if you don't.

    Not sure yet if there will be party hats, but I have arranged for a food cart guy (Anthony, who is a nice person & also a regular customer of the shop). He grills hot dogs, brats, chicken.
    For those who were in the small group who did omelettes there one morning, it's the same person.

    Drinks will of course be available through the shop.

    Friends, neighbors, spouses, & well-behaved kids are welcome too. Just include them in your head count.
    In order to give the owner & the food cart guy some idea of what to expect, and to have enough ice cream, I would very much appreciate people letting me know if they're going to attend (by Wed. 15AUG).
    (Preferably on this thread, but PM here or on the Facebook announcement works too. Please sign up ONCE, else I'll have a count that's too high!)

    I won't be able to make it on a Sunday. Any other day is great. All my Sundays are locked in for quite some time. Congratulations again Krysta!

    Wish I could be there but we will be partying with you in mind here in MI ( or as some call us... the mistake across the lake )

    Be safe Krysta - your brother in arms.

    AAh, not me either. Found out that my daughter has a goat to enter the fair for her 4H on the 19th. If I don't comply with my Blonde wifey, I'll be sleeping on the couch for a long time. I won't be able to handle that for 1 night!
    Krysta. Save me a doggie bag. Keep safe. You and those who were at the Culver's incident give me confidence that I can CC/OC too. I'll plan a trip with wifey and plan to meet you all there in Miluakastan and Madistan.

    If you CAN attend, please PM me or post on this thread.

    I'm planning to rent the shop for a few hours after they normally close, but so far I've only had 3 people say they could come, so I might just move the gathering to earlier in the afternoon (during their normal hours), & not buy ice cream, & not have the food cart guy there.

    might not be the worst idea, save some money. Let me know when you decide.

    I'm in. Might try to bring 2-3 guests. I will confirm with them and update my count if they're coming. So mark me down for 1 for now.

I don't want a cause for you know what... over this with wifey. She is a blonde and ahem... you know how they are.

    Celebrate your victory. I am there in spirit. Pray that my gun will be released to me. Can't believe that I had to sign a fed and a state form after I got the CCL! The caliber? 3+2+2. You'll get it.

    I'll ask my wife to dye her hair red. Maybe things will be spicier ha.

    Between RSVPs here & Facebook, we're up to about a dozen people.
    I'd hoped for more, but it's a good start.
    Guess I'll scale down from the Gordon Food Service store box of ice cream sandwiches to simply going to Woodman's.

    Sorry for the delay in responding... Deb & I will try to make it, but no guarantees - we're putting on a large party Saturday night, and we need to break everything down and clean up on Sunday. So it's two definite maybe's!

    We'll try to be there, but if we can't, of course you know we'll be there with you in spirit.

    "Setup", at least on my part, will be limited to bringing in the cooler w/ ice cream.
    Not planning on streamers & party hats.

    Do you want anyone to bring anything? I'd be okay with throwing a dish of something or other together.

    ......

    Not sure yet if there will be party hats,
    Darn I thought party hats would have sent MPD over the edge, but no need to rub their noses in it I guess.

    The shop sells drinks & some nibbles, much like Starbuck's (but better),
    and I've arranged to have one of the other regular customers bring his food cart, which sells brats & such.
    So with ice cream for dessert I think the bases are covered.
    Of course, I've rarely seen anyone turn down chocolate chip cookies...
