Food Review – Great Dane Pub, Wausau, WI

Hi There,

Welcome to another edition of my food blog.  Today I am reviewing “The Great Dane” in Wausau, WI.  I have not had the greatest experiences here, but the last two have been outstanding.  The last time, prior to last evening, was in July 2017 where I visited this restaurant for a 15 year high school reunion.  I ordered their cheese curds, which were outstanding.  Last night, I officially put “The Great Dane” back on the map of great restaurants in Wausau.

On the menu was french onion soup, which featured pretzel croutons.  Then I ordered a their grilled cheese sandwich, which featured ham and an awesome pimento beer cheese drizzled on the inside.  Then there was the classic poutine, which was very traditional, but their fries, gravy and cheese curds were very fresh and superb.  Then there had to be cocktails involved.  A double crown royal on the rocks and a landmark lite beer were involved.  Great Dane features their own craft beers on tap, and a lite beer was striking my mood last night.

I left the place with a bright smile on my face, and I am definitely visiting this place again soon.  Thank you for one of the greatest food experiences I have had in a long time.  10/10

Food Review – Cinco de Mayo Weekend 2018

Greetings and Salutations,

This blog is all about my dining experiences, from the previous weekend.

So what I did was, I threw my diet and exercise completely out the window, and ate like a champion.  I had a little bit of everything, so it is going to be a little difficult to crave anything these next few days.

So I am going to describe what is going on in each picture, and I will critique each picture and its food.

So what you see in the first picture is from Domino’s.  I stretched this out into three meals.  There’s a large buffalo chicken pizza, a medium pizza with double cheese, salami and Italian sausage.  Then as a side item, we have a 16 piece of parmesan bread bites.  The food tasted the absolute best when fresh, but warmed up, not that much.  It is highly recommended to eat Domino’s as much as you can, the day you get it delivered/carried out.  6.5/10

The second picture is a peanut butter cup shake I got from a gas station chain, very popular in the Midwest, called Kwik Trip.  Good shake, but the best shake I’ve ever had, triumphs this easily.  6/10

The third picture are from an authentic Mexican restaurant called La Taqueria, and it just opened on Wausau’s West Side.  So the item to get is the street taco.  I’ve tried their burrito and quesadilla, and I was not as impressed as the street taco.  So I ordered two street tacos, chicken and chorizo, and I washed it down with a strawberry margarita on the rocks.  Everything went down smooth, and the flavor was an unforgettable experience.  9/10

The fourth picture is a continuation of the Cinco de Mayo celebration, and I wanted to keep my buzz going.

The fifth and sixth pictures are from Culver’s, mostly out of the midwest, famous for their butter burgers, custard and reputation of always preparing their food fresh on the spot.  I tried their pretzel haus pub burger, and cheese curds were recommended to pair with the pub burger, and I washed it down with a diet Culver’s homemade root beer.  I also took advantage of their custard, with a one-scoop vanilla dish.  The burger reminded me of something I would get in a German restaurant.  It had that tangy mustard mixed with the cheeses, patty and pretzel buns.  It definitely, but I prefer their colby jack pub burger version – it’s more safe and more me.  As usual, a fresh dining experience at Culver’s.  7.5/10

The last and seventh picture is just a pile of sharp cheddar and mozzarella cheese, with Hormel pepperoni, and they are microwaved on top of a 1.5 oz serving of nacho cheese Doritos.  I did not feel like buying another meal Sunday night, so I did this.  Lazy, kind of boring, but a great way to end the see-food weekend diet.  7/10

Stay tuned for another dining experience from me.  Thank you for reading.

Food Review – 9/16/17, Everest Area Optimist Cheese Curds

Hello there!

This week we are going a little local on this blog.  This will be my one last hurrah, Summer blog before we start heading in the fall.

This blog is all about Wisconsin Cheese Curds.  We have a local stand in the Wausau area called the “Everest Area Optimist Club” who serves cheese curds, brats, hamburgers and hot dogs about a half of dozen times a Summer.  They’re always parked at Ace Hardware in Weston, WI (Wausau suburb), across from Target.  I found out they were serving food on Friday and Saturday.  The heart was racing with excitement.

I made plans, on Saturday, to visit the Everest Area Optimist Club one last time before the cooler weather hits, and as I expected, I was not disappointed by any means.  That golden beer battered curd was melting in my mouth immediately, cooked to perfection.  This is the curd to get guys.  This is the curd of the Summer!  A great beer battered cheese curd cannot be too greasy, which means they were not cooked long enough, and you should not be able to crunch the curd like a potato chip; that means they were cooked too long.

I experienced the perfect cheese curd, and Wisconsin folks know what I am talking about.  The only thing I am going to gripe about is, they could have been hotter, temperature wise.  They were definitely under a hot light, but they were still perfectly cooked.  9/10

 

Just Hours Away

Ladies and Gentleman,

We are just hours away from the Matz iPhone 5/5S case being available on Amazon.com!  Later this evening, we will have this case ready for buyers.  Plus it’s Friday too!  Last day of the work week for some of you, as well as myself.

We will find out if the hard work, to get this case on the market, pays off.

5 Reasons to Work From Home

Good Afternoon,

I am sharing with you 5 reasons why you should land a job and not have to leave the house.  These are not in particular order.

1.  You can fire your boss!  For those of you who have done the research, many opportunities to work from home say, “Fire Your Boss!”  Scam or not, it is true.  Isn’t the goal of one’s job is not to get hassled by your boss?  There are many work from home jobs that you don’t have to put up with a superior.

2.  The internet is more popular than ever.  Find the right website that will pay you for your work, rather than you having to pay!  Watch out for that.  Make sure the opportunity it is legit before you put your hard-earned money into something.

3.  No commute and no dress code!  Are you living in a multi-million populated city where it takes you an hour to get to work, and you’re only 15 miles away?  Put on a pair of shorts and a t-shirt and you’re ready to work from home.  Just put on only underwear if you want, like the guy in the Lending Tree commercial!

4.  You are your ticket to financial freedom!  All work from home opportunities, even the ones that claim you can make $10,000 a month in 5 seconds, require hard work.  Making money isn’t easy, but you can work from home.

5.  You have more time for friends, family and a social life.  Parents and super sociable individuals can benefit from working at their home.  I personally am a hermit who doesn’t want to spend the money to go out and socialize.  I feel if I can earn a substantial amount of money working from home, that can change.

Those are my thoughts.  Good luck to everyone who is looking for home employment!  I’m out!

Have a Good Friday and Stay Tuned

It’s another Friday at the office. The Indian Summer continues (supposed to be 78 degrees today). May this day go by fast for you.

Not only am I going to work even harder to make a career out of social media, I am pursuing other work from home opportunities
too. They are out there; the question is, how much effort are you willing to put in? No income opportunity falls on your lap. You’re fooling yourself if you can make $10,000 a month with little work put into it. What I am going to do is share my insights on working from home, from the research I have done. Until then, goodbye!
