    La Crosse? Geeze, I'm just over an hour from there. Nice town -- all the amenities without being a big city.

    Several breweries in town -- Pearl Street Brewery, City Brewery, 608 Brewery, and others. The La Crosse Distilling Co makes rye whiskey, gin, and vodka.

    Harmony, MN, about an hour away has Harmony Distilling and a super little eatery called Estelle's. Hillsboro WI is not far away from LaX and is tucked away in one of the prettiest regions of Wisconsin. Hillsboro has the Hillsboro Brewery with some excellent brews and there's a nice cheese store within walking distance of the brewery.

      There was a time LC sported more bars per capita then anywhere. And, yes the town got its name after the sport.

      I've been told that most states around Wisconsin have about 2500 liquor licenses per state. Supposedly Wisconsin has over 13,000 licenses. There are LOTS of little "one horse" taverns out in the middle of Nowhere Wisconsin.

      Why am I not surprised.
      It's well known in Wisconsin that when you get north of HWY 8 if you get pulled over and do not have an open intoxicant, it is a $10 ticket....
      Viva Wisconsin!

        I do have commitments all summer but not every weekend. Figure out a date and if it fits, I will surely be there plus one, he's not a member but lurks around when everyone is sleeping
        I'm more partial to June, weather is better and a little more stable comparatively speaking...

          I feel the same way. May can still be less then pleasant in May.

          There is a barbecue comp within 10 miles of LaC in early June. we have lot’s of offerings in our down town, which is where I suggest a hotel room., we have a few great restaurants, and about 80 bars in our down town. We could also do a cocktail hour in our driveway. We also have one of the absolute impressive guitar stores you will ever go in, we have microbreweries, distilleries, and so much. Looking forward

            Hungry Peddler, hands down the best french onion soup I have ever had.
            Octoberfest used to be the best place to get a beer bath from beers air launched in the band tent. The Dairy Queen booths fried curds were made onsite, there was always a line
            Used to go to LaCrosse for Octoberfest every year and we also meet our Minnesota boating buddies there during hard water season for a fun mid winter weekend.
            Used to be good Foosball in LaCrosse too.
            Miss LaCrosse....

          I think June is better than May. If it were me, I'd just set the date, and let people work it out best they can. Having a fixed date would be better for those of us that have to request time off.

            I hope to set a date in June, and will work on hotels etc. By Monday.

                June is going to be pretty tough for me as we already have at least 3 weekends booked, I guess there’s always next time if it doesn’t work.

                    Yeah, never will hit a date that works for everyone. Can only hope for those that can make it, to make it a good time, and more draw for future gatherings.
