Did the planets accidentally align? How is this all possible?
On a recent trip across country, we were traveling through Wisconsin. If you have never been there, Wisconsin is a large, beautiful state. They are also notorious for their dairy products. And naturally I was thinking about food.
It so happened, at nearly 1300 miles from home, that I had a hankering for a really good deli sandwich, and I wanted it made with high quality, locally produced cheese and meats. It didn't seem like too much to ask, because those folks up there are really good at that.
As a matter of confession, we are Baby Boomers. We are the caboose end of our generation, but we are firmly entrenched nonetheless. However, we are learning cool tricks from our kids, and my wife did what all Millennials instinctively know. She pulled out her phone and googled it. In a matter of seconds, she was reading me a list of upcoming possibilities which, naturally, were all unfamiliar. So she did the next thing our generation doesn't do. She began reading reviews … online.
As I have stated, we don't do this kind of stuff on a regular basis, so we tend to miss some of the neat little clues, but one review had a particular detail that jumped out at her. It was written by one of our daughters! And it turned out it was our three-year-old granddaughter who had originally chosen the place! They live over 800 miles from there.
HOW COOL IS THAT? Right?
They had liked it. So we plugged it into the GPS, and shortly thereafter found ourselves at the Mocha Mouse.
My cold cut bistro sandwich was too big by at least two times. I ate it all. My wife's sandwich was too big. She ate it all as well. I got coffee as we waddled out the door. But not without looking around first. They have a used bookstore upstairs. They have interesting local crafts, local canned goodies, and more. Plus they were super nice folks.
Naturally, Boathouse Mouse wanted a picture with the people there. He certainly has a way with the ladies. Boathouse really loves #AdventuringWithBoathouseMouse
If you happen to be traveling around in Wisconsin, you might want to stop in to the Mocha Mouse. Tell them Boathouse Mouse sent you. I can't promise you'll get a selfie with a group of pretty ladies, but you will find really good food.
