Maybe all the people in Milwaukee who think rail is the future…

June 9th, 2008

…should take up a collection to put a decent restaurant into Milwaukee’s intermodal station. (That’s a fancy name for “train/bus station” for all you folks who don’t live in Milwaukee.)

The Dunkin’ Donuts they’re proposing seems a little too pedestrian for this newly remodeled temple to public transportation.

On the other hand, cialis buy thumb the expectation that the terminal should be home to a “destination, cialis canada sit-down restaurant” is ridiculous.

Considering that almost all the traffic out of the station occurs in the morning, what they really need is a decently run McDonald’s and a nice newsstand.

Mmmmmm, Egg McMuffin. Now, that’s something worth chew, chewing on.

    So, maybe a Chili’s. They do airports…

    Or a Fridays. We already have one at our baseball stadium (which is actually pretty cool).

    At least a Culvers. It’s local, after all.

    How how about the elite snob factor form the leaders in Milwaukee.

    Gee every one going to Chicago at 6am in the morning really wants a nice sit down meal.

    Why don’t they understand that the people using this will be commuters and not looking for a 3 star restaurant to stop and eat in.

    So I am guessing it is better to have a high class place fail than put in a decent well run fast food place that might actually make a go of it.

    Any of the restaurants mentioned above me would be great.

    Man Milwaukee can find a way to mess up everything they touch can’t they? LOL

    I am surprised Mayor Empty Suit did not just say “We Need to Get Guns off the Streets” that seems to be the only answer he has for all the problems that his city has lol

    There are snobs and then there are elite snobs. To determine which you are, complete Chris’ Elite Snob Factor” form.

    He was very nearly making sense though for a few sentences there. I’m seeing real improvement.

    Put in a Dunkin Donuts so the southbounders can get a carbs, caffeine and a keffiyeh in the morning and a George Webb so the can pick up a sack of something nice for the family on the way home.

    I am not a snob Tim I am just better than you.

    Fine get Moes or someone else on that level to put a restaurant in there and when it fail and it will we can do it in a way that might actually make money and survive.

    You Lefty type have to try and understand the business has to make MONEY to say in business not everyone can run a deficit like your beloved government and survive.

    its funny grumps you make fun of places like George Webbs a chain that has survived and outlasted how many elite snob restaurants since they started.

    Do not get me wrong there is a place for nice upper crust restaurants and Milwaukee has more than its fair share the Amtrack station is not the place for another one.

    Why is it that Milwaukee can never do anything the practical way?

    Please go ahead and fail again it is actually quite funny to sit out here in Waukesha county and watch you guys shot yourselves in the foot over and over and over again.

    Stand down, Chris and pay attention. I agreed with you for Ghod’s sake.

    George Webb is the perfect fit for a train station. Decent food. Fast service. Local color.

    If you weren’t so damned quick to puff up and start raving about “Lefties” you might be able to see what’s going on. (And BTW, restaurant choice isn’t really a right-left split. That’s just what the voices want you to believe. Even Communists like a tasty burger and a tasty beverage on the go.)

    Sorry Grumps Tim does that to me and I just assumed you were being sarcastic it is a Pavlovian response I cannot help myself.
