Mark your calendars:
Sherman Perk Coffee Shop
49th & Roosevelt, in Milwaukee (slightly north of St. Joseph's Hospital at 50th & Burleigh)
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!)

“Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”
—John F. Kennedy
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 )

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.

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 can attend as long as you don't change it to any time before 1.

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.
I will be there, let me know if you need any help with setup. Use the batphone!

"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.

The shop sells drinks & some nibbles, much like Starbuck's (but better),Originally Posted by NoTolerance
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...
