Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:
Recently my wife and I took a trip up to Milwaukee for the day. There is a restaurant on the drive up that we always stop at called the Star Restaurant. Much to our surprise the restaurant was closed. We probably should have suspected something was up when the resturant wasn't listed on the exit sign.
The Star is one of those restaurants that has been around a very long time. My wife indicated that she always ate at the restaurant with her mother and her aunt as a child when they used to go up to Milwaukee at Christmas time. We also kidnapped our youngest grandchild one Saturday afternoon to go to Mars Cheese Factory (which is across the street) and ate at the Star. There have been four generations in her family who have eaten there… and now it's gone.
It must not have been closed long since they had a sign which advertised that they have been in business for 70 years. It's an awful tragedy to have something that was such a tradition now no longer a part of our lives. We now have to rethink where we are going to stop to eat on our trips up to Milwaukee.
