Alice Elser was the owner of Alice's Restaurant on the shores of Lake Wisconsin. Her Friday Fish Fry and half-pound hamburgers were a cornerstone of the local community. Fishermen, Farmers, and Flatlanders all knew her and her wonderful food.

Enjoy the Summer

It’s summer time and classes have only recently let out.  So… Nothing here just yet.   We’ll get to working on that in the weeks to come, so that there will be a good backlog of posts when you finally have to trudge back to campus. In the meantime, enjoy the summer.
