A Dream Theatre Come True

One of my dream theatres to play the film in when I was making it was the Al Ringling Theatre in Baraboo, Wisconsin.  Why?  Because it was an original “Movie Palace” when it opened in 1915, that it is a legendary landmark in Wisconsin, because it was built by the world famous Al Ringling.  Yes … Continue reading

Alice In Dairyland At Lambeau Field

The 70th annual Alice In Dairyland finale ended at Lambeau Field Atrium this year with a fun night of great food, great views, and good competition.  And to make clear, the Alice In Dairyland events shift counties from year to year, so it being at Lambeau Field this year was an anomaly that won’t happen … Continue reading

Alice In Dairyland (Botanical Gardens)

Night One of the 70th Alice In Dairyland events in Green Bay (technically Brown County was hosting, but it took place mostly in GB).  Getting to run around the Green Bay Botanical Gardens was in and of itself a great pleasure, but hanging with some fellow sponsors and hearing all about Wisconsin agriculture made the … Continue reading

Martha Merrell’s Is A Marvel

Martha Merrell’s Bookstore in downtown Waukesha is truly a marvel of tenacity in spite of the online order craze most bookstores have faced over the past decade or so.  It’s a fun place with lots of unique options, and a great owner who makes your visit wonderfully interesting.  Plus they now sell all of our … Continue reading

Shell Lake Arts Center Event

Join us for the Shell Lake Arts Center showing of the documentary on April 1st, 2017.  No, this is not an April Fools Day joke, and yes, that tiny town in Northwest Wisconsin does have an arts center as it is quite the artistic, art driven town.  Hope to see you there. * * * … Continue reading

Cheeseheads Governance

Got to meet with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker a few weeks back and give him a DVD of the film.  Notice we are in a library (Chetek High School) which is amazing fitting considering how much research it took to make the documentary. * * *

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

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This one is a bit out of date as I misplaced the photos, but it’s also somewhat timeless being that it’s a Packer bar in Wisconsin.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

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
