"Chadoin' This Weekend?"

Friday, Oct, 18 2013

At 4:30-ish today Mary Hirvela of the Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau stops by with some ideas for what to do this weekend in the area.

We talk weekend plans in the PhilCast's "Chadoin' This Weekend?" segment right after the 4:30 news.

One of the things we'll be doing this weekend is attending e.a.t.s., a benefit for students at UW-Fox Valley.

Chefs. Food. And I guess there is other stuff going on too, but you know me and food....count me in. For more info on the Saturday evening event:

We LOVE Mexican food!

Thursday, Oct, 17 2013

Salsa has topped ketchup as this country's favorite condiment.

Our most popular side dish is now rice.

Both these stats are just part of the story I'll have on the PhilCast today about our love of Mexican food.

Go to the PhilCast Facebook fan page to post your favorite place for Mexican food and we'll read them during the story today.


Also Thursday, Lips LaBelle with Hollywood news and gossip at 4:30-ish.

And I take on the Post-Crescent's Dan Kohn in our NFL pick segment to start off the show. After six weeks we are tied at 3-3.

Hump Day off

Wednesday, Oct, 16 2013

On Wednesday there will be an extra hour of the Clark Howard Show between 3:00 and 4:00. Then it's PhilCast Classic Clips from Reggie.

I'm taking a day off to spend working around the new house with Mrs. Biggest Name. Since she has only been up here in the Fox Valley for a couple of weeks, we have yet to start decorating. Heck, not all the boxes are even unpacked yet.

Back at it live on Thursday with Lips LaBelle.

Bathroom? Restaurant? It's both!

Tuesday, Oct, 15 2013

Now this is just dumb.

Take a look. That's no bathroom. It's a restaurant where they serve, well, you know, bathroom-sounding dishes and people eat while on the throne.

I don't get it.

Call me goofy, but I'll take my burger and fries at a normal old table with a chair.

Lets leave the toilets for the actual bathroom.

Wedding Weekend

Monday, Oct, 14 2013

"HowzYer Weekend?"

After Pack Yak, 3-4 today on the PhilCast we'll talk weekend and I'll talk about a road trip to the Dells for my nephew Joey's wedding.

Congrats to Michelle and Joey.

All went well and I was glad to escape from the Dells alive. (Can you tell it's not my favorite place in the world?)

Then on Sunday I fell into what can only be described as one of most tasty things I've eaten in a long time.

There is a market-type store on Highway 21 that has been there for some time. I've seen the little cafeteria area grow a lot over the years and had not eaten there in some time. We stopped on the drive home Sunday and BAM....there it was....
This pulled pork tostada was an explosion of flavors in my mouth.

Quite honestly, it was one of the most outstanding things I have eaten in a long, long time.

We took home a home-made caramel apple for later on Sunday.

There must have been a pound of caramel on that thing. We went with peanuts as well. None of those tiny square pieces here....nope...big fresh chunks of salty goodness.

Again, probably the best one I've ever eaten. I'll be back!
