The Bright Side
This is a big deal for Lake Geneva.
What is, you might ask? Flat Iron Tap, the new farm to table restaurant in downtown Lake Geneva that officially opened on April 18th. Judging by the comments and questions the GSR employees received pertaining to the opening of the restaurant, it was quite obvious that Lake Geneva’s ravenous residents were looking for a new establishment to fill their craving for down-right tasty food. The Flat Iron Tap has a full menu of wonderfully made dishes prepared with quality organic ingredients. Their specialty is farm-to-table gourmet burgers, and their substantial selection of 24 different beers on tap. An extensive wine list is also available. The staff is awesome, and the decor was designed and built by the owner, who is quite talented in his own right. Open less than a week, already every table and bar stool is almost constantly occupied till closing. Come early-but not too early (11 am) and stay late-but not too late (10 pm). Don’t have time to stay, then get take out.
Flat Iron Tap Opens
This Saturday is all about fun and fitness for the whole family at the Highway con. The second annual Sprint for Spring 5K Run/Walk will start at 9 a.m. You can still register the day of the race, just get there before 8:30 a.m. The half-mile run/walk will follow the race for kids ten and under. Goody bags and “T” shirts will be handed out while supplies last. The fun and fitness does not end there. At 10:30 a.m. Healthy Kids Day starts. There will be many informative booths and activities to encourage and teach kids and their families how to practice healthy habits. The YMCA is a great asset to the community, and this is sure to be another great day at the Y!
Highway 120 Hell!!!
They’ve closed it. No, they have not. Oh yes, they have. Oh yeah! Yeah! The “back of the high school bus” Wisconsin Highway Department team the state put together to plan and execute the reconstruction of Highway 120 is an applied disaster. If you leave Lake Geneva on 120, which you can, heading north, well, you are not coming back. You have to return using a labyrinthian detour driving on Kreuger, then 22 and then come back through Lake Geneva on 50. If you are a heavy truck you can just turn around five miles out, where there is no turn around space, and head back to Burlington. The entire State Highway Department of Wisconsin needs to repeat fifth and six grade at some highly touted private elementary school. God, what a mess!
