Weary Traveler

     When Sunday rolls around, I'm more then less likely to be physically and maybe even mentally exhausted too. So heavy rich food is always on the mind when waking up. So I knew just by the name the Weary Traveler would fit the bill.

     Bob’s (Organic) Bad Breath Burger a half pound of hand-packed fresh ground Lange      Farms organic Wisconsin beef* with cream cheese, green goddess dressing, caramelized onions, garlic, tomatoes and Pickapeppa Sauce (mild) w/ a side of Yukon Gold potatoes & mixed greens. (10.75)

   The burger doesn't come with a fried egg but i was feeling brunchy and been craving a egg on my burger as of late. If you follow me on Instagram you would have already known this. The patty was cooked perfectly rare and the egg was runny! There wasn't any ketchup on the table so I had to ask. The server came out was homemade ketchup, which was perfectly sweet and tomatoy. The Bloody Mary was an amazing $5.50 and an extra .75 for a chaser. Didn't have room for dessert but they make it all in house. This is where Calliope Ice Cream started and still available also.

Mickey's Tavern

    The first bar I every went to in Madison was Mickey's Tavern. I had been reading only good things about their Bloody Mary and Sexy Fries. So was in town in the evening for an event, This was six months before I moved to Madison. The thing got done earlier then expected. So I headed to Mickey's. The deal thou with myself was if there was open stale in their parking lot. Which, only has about 6 stales. Then only will I go in. Well there was an open spot. That night was a turning point for this introvert. I had never been in a bar by myself before. That night I meet a couple of food industry people. From then on I started to go out to see those people again, I got more involved in the food and beverage scene and decided I wanted to move to Madison. 

     Now let me stop talking about my life revolution and get on to the food and beverage. All the times I have had their Bloody Mary it has been excitedly seasoned and a standout in the Best Bloody Mary in town. The fries are like none I have ever had. Thinly sliced and tossed with white truffle oil, parmesan cheese, chives and crushed red pepper. Recently stopped in on a Sunday for brunch. Was going to sit out on their patio but it was packed but it was slightly humid out too. So happily sat in one of the many air conditioned room. I ordered the biscuits and gravy with a sunny side egg and a side of potatoes.  My go to bunch meal. The biscuits were perfectly dry and moist with them being made with cornmeal and buttermilk. Great to scoop up the love handle making gravy and runny egg. Is it odd to say a bar brought out the best of me with no regrets involved? Nay
