Apple fritters?

Michael Hasenstab said...

Beer battered cod?

How are the ribs? I've got a hankering for good ribs today; it's sunny, and the bike has a full tank of fuel.

Michael Hasenstab said...

Maybe the sugar fried biscuits. they look beignet-y.

Bissage said...

It's good to see you guys ordered the taco salad in a helmet.

bearbee said...

Looks like fried something with powdered sugar.

You persist in defying the food police.

That is sooooo not obama.....

jacksonianlawyer said...

Looks a little bit like beignets, but since this place isn't Cafe du Monde, even if they were beignets, they were inferior.

That said, looks a good place to have a great time.

Kavanaugh's Esquire Club may have a corny sign, but it's outlasted probably 95% of other restaurants founded in 1947.

Some kind of fried goodness. This is not healthy eating at all! Where's the arugula and tuna?

former law student said...

Who ever would eat breakfast in that uniquely Wisconsinian (?) institution, the supper club? dDo they ever have fried perch suppers?

The grease in the doughnut holes is good for you, by the way. Fat in the breakfast moderates the blood sugar, preventing the spike and dip which would lead to fatigue.

Alex said...

FLS - actually its mistaken to think that the grease in the donut moderates the insulin effect of all that sugar when you combine them. People need to consume different kinds of lipids:

* monounsaturated
* polyunsaturated
* saturated

in balance for healthy living. Donuts are not healthy living.

PatCA said...

Abelskivers...or dopplegangers, something like that.

Michael Hasenstab said...

This topic and the first two photos are freaking me out. Hopping on my motorcycle, heading to Madison for lunch at Smokey Jon's #1 BBQ.

William said...

The whole concept of deep frying cake is in many ways even more appealing than deep frying steak. But there's another shoe to drop. Surely there must be a way of making donuts in bacon grease.

Drethelin said...

last time I went to smokey jon's I got pissed off because for some retarded reason they only have chili in the winter, and I'd been really in the mood for chili. who the hell has seasonal chili?

AJ Lynch said...

On that sign, is that the legendary but mythical "Moomaid"?

kentuckyliz said...

Supper clubs are all over the Midwest.

I am signed up for a Basic Motorcycle Riders course for Oct. 23-24-25. I think I'm ready for my next mid-life crisis.

WV pusti. Italian crusted pus.

Obviously, sugar fried bicuits from Smokey Jon's!

The Office Of Preventative Medicine has processed your menu order and has deemed you ineligible for further health care.

We look forward to not serving you in the future.

MadisonMan said...

That's a far better place to eat on that side of town than that high-priced bakery in the shopping center across the street, sort of, from the Maple Bluff Town Hall. Mein Gott they charge an arm and a leg for a muffin.

Chip Ahoy said...

Once I scarfed a powdered doughnut and forgot to not inhale while taking a bite. My throat was instantly coated with powder and I think some went into my lungs. I choked helplessly unable to cough it out. I thought I was going to die right there in the doughnut shop.

This concludes my powdered doughnut related near-death tale of silent suffering.

Ann Althouse said...

Scapa14 got it.

knox said...

Are you guys able to eat a full meal and bike after? I definitely couldn't without ... unpleasant consequences.

Jeremy said...

Gosh.

Can we see where you took a shit, too?

People are actually following this drivel?

Jeremy said...

Chipper - Geeeee, any other really interesting stories?

Good lord...I really you LIVE to suck up to Ann, but maybe it's time you got a fucking life.

"Kavanaugh's Esquire Club may have a corny sign, but it's outlasted probably 95% of other restaurants founded in 1947."

Amen, brother Peter.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I always give extra points for surviving against all odds.

Penny said...

Michael H wants to know how the ribs were.

Something tells me that those of us hanging out on this post never had a bad rib in our lives! lol

Why else would there be sooooooo many #1 bbq joints?

When was the last time you bicycled to a #1 vegan joint?

I rest my case, your honor.

Meade said...

Judgement for Penny!

Chip Ahoy said...

And then there's you, J, with apparently nothing better to do than leave a trail of rabbit turds online. Persistently.

Bite me. No don't. I'm not up to the rabies treatment.

Oh, I'm sorry. I've been instructed to ignore the likes of you.

Wrong. Famous Daves. South Park Street, Madison. Never going back.
