They will not be. I happened to talk to a higher up Exec last week. They mentioned they briefly entertained it but ended up sponsoring the arena site and build. They literally walk on site and if a worker on site isn't using a Milwaukee tool, they replace what they have with a Milwaukee for nothing. Kind of cool.

How many I-Beams did Alex physically install? "I saw the hard hat photos".

Sounds like fun. No real questions.

All this talk about George Webb is making me want to head out to Oconomowoc for a Webb's burger run.

I'm actually thinking of making a run too. There's one about 5 miles away I think. But the nice weather has me thinkin' of grillin' instead.

My wife and I went to Story Hill BKC for brunch but we didn't want to wait 45 minutes, so decided to head down to Bavaria in Wauwautosa. On the way down Bluemound I noticed the George Webb and remembered she had never been there (being from Chippewa Falls). I know, a total 180 from higher-end food, right? But I was remembering the days of their $4.99 Ham and Cheese omelette where they doused the thing cheese whiz (or something similar), and the delicious pieces of butter-soaked toast and thought "why not"?

What a disgrace. The Ham and Cheese omelette sucked and was nothing like what I remembered. She got some sort of 2 eggs, bacon, toast breakfast... I ordered a side of bacon, we each had a coffee and an orange juice. Our bill came out to $37+tip and that side of 3 pieces of wilted bacon was like $4.99. George Webb's is forever dead to me.

I really don't give two craps what they name the place but I think it gets announced in the next two weeks.

Man, what a s****y experience! It's funny how as we age we revisit those nostalgic places and they rarely fit the bill. I can't even imagine a 2018 George Webb's! It seems like the perfect late 80's early 90's Wisco diner. But, now that food has evolved so much in the past 20 years I imagine it's a poor man's Huddle House? I don't even know. Too bad!

For xtra credit, find out (or measure) the SEAT PITCH for the upper & lower bowls !
I estimated 35" for the lower bowl and 33" for the upper bowl.

Webbs was always about the guy cooking the crap in the back a good cook could create some magic back there.
