Alice In Dairyland At The Neville

We did a couple of screenings at the Neville Museum in Green Bay in honor of the 70th Alice In Dairyland celebration.  Had a lot of fun with Alice, Chester, and all of the terrific people at the Neville Museum.  Plus there was plenty of Nueske’s meat snacks to go around, so it was a … Continue reading

The Legendary Press Gazette

If you must do a book and DVD signing with the legendary Packers kicker Chester Marcol, it should be in places like the lobby of the also legendary Green Bay Press Gazette building in downtown Green Bay.  So much history, too much awesome architecture, and way too much Packers Glory.  Oh what a great evening … Continue reading

No JJ Watts, But Lots Of Comfort

We had scheduled a show the weekend of the Texans game at Lambeau Field, but despite JJ Watts not playing as he was out for the season on injured reserve (the biggest reason for that weekend), we went ahead and had lots of fun with Chester, the staff at Comfort Suites, and the great people … Continue reading

Just Be Still – For Fun

We had a terrific holiday event with Just Be Still in Fond Du Lac just before Christmas, and had the great luxury of having both Chester Marcol, and George Koonce in attendance for the signing, as well as the awesome Jeff Kahlow and his Big Guy Hats.  JBS is a terrific Organic Foods restaurant in … Continue reading

The Sportsmen’s Bar (Ridgeland)

This one is a bit out of date as I misplaced the photos, but it’s also somewhat timeless being that it’s a Packer bar in Wisconsin.  The Sportsmen’s Bar in Ridgeland has awesome burgers and bar food, and an even better collection of Packers memorabilia, plus some classic Northwoods collectables.  And they should have some … Continue reading

Comfort Suites Appleton With Chester

We did a Comfort Suites Appleton screening and signing with Chester last fall, and it was quite a good time with the people from @WiscoHotels.  Not only are they a great sponsor, but the people who work for them are like the friendliest ever.  I’ve made good friends because of it, and they were thrilled … Continue reading

Green Bay Legends Signing

Stumbled upon these from a while ago.  I had the good fortune of being put in with Chester Marcol and Dave Robinson (both in the documentary) as well as several others from the Lombardi Era for a Legends signing event at the Green Bay Distillery.  That was a great deal of fun, even if I … Continue reading

Appleton Public Library Matinee Time

Had a fun time doing a matinee show at the Appleton Public Library a while back (catching up on some older posts now).  Libraries are an important part of communities throughout Wisconsin and I spent a good deal of my time in them as a kid, so it’s always a pleasure to do library screenings … Continue reading

GB Press Gazette Insider Night

We had a terrific time with Green Bay Press Gazette INSIDER putting on a show at the Brown County Central Library with a healthy attendance in an incredibly nice “state of the art” theatre (one you could almost not find as it is in the basement).  Chester was there, along with great snacks from Nueske’s … Continue reading

Orson Welles “War Of The Worlds” in history today: The Presteblog

78 years ago today, a Cheesehead (though the term was still young then) scared the pants off of most of America with his radio broadcast.  Orson Welles was a Wisconsin native who grew up in Kenosha, and became one of the greatest filmmakers in history. Today in 1938, CBS (radio, obviously, because there was no … Continue reading
