I was at Woodmans yesterday and didn't see any, but I'm keeping an eye out. Also for all of the IPA lovers out there, you're gonna want to stop out and pick this up...

The KK strip in Bay View has a lot of good restaurants; Sven's, Hi Fi Cafe, Honeypie, Hue, etc. Then further north you have Cafe Lulu's and all that.

Damn, I need to get some HopSlam, I see it's at Discount in Milwaukee now. I've bought a case and a half of Sucks so far, has to be my new favorite hoppy beer. A little different but pretty good on tap too.

I stopped at Karben4 recently, the newest brewpub in Madison and the beer was pretty good. They are having their grand opening on Saturday and are located in Ale Asylum's old building.

I went to their soft opening a few weeks back. They had a (mildly) smoked porter and Rye APA that were both solid and an amber that was okay. Those will be their staple beers along with a session ale and an Irish ale. Their seasonal will be a rotating IPA, and the first one is a Black IPA that comes out tomorrow. The place has a different feel than the old Ale Asylum - they did a nice job with it. Speaking of Ale Asylum - they've been putting out limited edition hoppy beers of their own. I had an IPA a few weeks back that was tasty.

Long as I'm here:
The other newer Madison brewpubs - One Barrel and House of Brews are okay. Vintage continues to make great beers and now can be found all over the Milwaukee market.
Both Kenosha Brewpubs - Public Craft and Rustic Road were average at best and need a little time to get the process down as they seemed a little "home-brewy"
Sweet Mullets in Oconomowoc is quickly becoming my favorite in the Milwaukee area.

I'm not sure. I thought I used a basket from my local course which I believe are Mach 3's, but I can't remember.

So, I'm really feeling a margarita this weekend at some point. Any of you have a recipe you'll swear by?

Abendschein in Oak Creek. It's a smaller course but easy to get an after work round in during the spring and fall. They recently changed it up a bit and added a few longer holes.

I live on KK and that's the best thing about it, all the great restaurants. Besides the ones you mentioned I had a great meal recently at Pastiche. And yeah the ones further north by Lulu- Odd Duck is incredible. Riviera Maya is good. The new GTO (Guanajuato) just opened a few days ago on Howell just south of Lincoln & a new Mexican place just opened in the former spot.

The food itself at Lakefront is completely forgettable but it's a cool place to go for the overall experience.
Turner Hall Restaurant just reopened late last year. I just read a review in Milwaukee Magazine. I haven't eaten there but you might want to give that a shot.
Brocach I think serves fish. They're decent.
O'Lydias is good, not technically downtown but real close.
Depends on how much of a radius we're talking here.

I really like this but I'm not a big beer drinker. They have it at Discount Liquor.
