1st and Main – The New Kid on the Block

1st and Main – The New Kid on the Block

We all know there is no shortage of bars in Dubuque. In fact, at one point, Dubuque had more bars per capita than anywhere else in the country. I'm not sure if that's a great bragging right, but we all know Dubuque likes its drink. With so many bar options available, each with their own draw and appeal, and many offering some sort of salty, thirst inducing snack to match the cold beer, it is usually not all that exciting to hear another bar is opening. Then we heard the chatter, and it was all good.

Ha Long… Has This Been Going On?

Ha Long… Has This Been Going On?

As the doldrums of winter march on, we relish in the smalls things – a sunny day, where anything above 32 degrees is balmy, heated car seats when it’s not, and trips up to Madison for a Costco run and a culture-filled meal. Because, let’s be honest, the tri-state area is beautiful and all, but sometimes you just need a little cultural soak, if you will.

The General’s Restaurant In the DeSoto House

The General’s Restaurant In the DeSoto House

There is something special about walking down Galena’s Main Street on a winter eve. The streets are lit, the store fronts’ windows are bright against the dark January night, passersby huddled close to one another as they move down the street filling the air with laughter. One is left to wonder what it must have been like to walk this same street during Galena’s heyday in the 1850s.

Fritz and Frites-You Rhone Regret It

Fritz and Frites-You Rhone Regret It

Let’s be completely honest, none of us are ready for this. We all secretly wish we had a glorious Indian summer that would have lulled us into the impending doom of winter. A fate we all dread, but one that has been disdainfully predicted by the fine writers of The Farmer’s Almanac. I am sure these are all charming individuals, but at this rate, their popularity may wane. May we suggest food? I mean, it may seem a devious escape, but really, everything is better with food, right?

L. May Eatery

L. May Eatery

Oh, October how we welcome you with a tinge in our voice; as we look over our shoulder to say good-bye to Summer.  Slowly we turn to welcome October with full knowledge that Winter is just around the corner.  Cool nights and brisk days of sunshine pass, coupled with Apple Cider, Pumpkin Patches and football.  Across the land, hearty stews and soups along with warm breads are making a comeback into our kitchens; replacing the lighter fare of the summer.  We want to dine with friends in an atmosphere that is warm and the food comforting.  There is no better place than L. May to fulfill that desire.
