A Play-by-Play of Lunch at @EateryonFarwell
As you know from my previous post, I enjoyed a free lunch at Eatery on Farwell yesterday. I had never been there before, shame on me, and, of course, I don’t have a Smartphone so was unable to provide a Tweetathon during the momentous event.
Here’s the play by play as I remember it:
For your typical written in long-form write-up, see my review on Yelp! - 1st to review, baby!
1:04 PM Pull up to Eatery on Farwell and demonstrate a perfectly turned out parallel park. You’re welcome, traffic behind me on Farwell, for the excellent driver’s ed demo.
1:07 PM Enter Eatery on Farwell and speak to pleasurable host, slipping it in that I’m their version of the Miss America First Runner Up
1:10 PM Seated near window for maximum people watching entertainment
1:11 PM Sadly, and with great regret, decline the Bloody Mary. Must save drinking for off hours. Diet coke it is.
1:15 PM Why does fountain soda taste so much better than canned soda?
1:16 PM *sip* Ahhhhh…..
1:20 PM Peruse menu. Salads, brunch, should I do brinner? Sandwic…..huh? Avocado aioli?!??!
1:23 PM Order “The Farwell” (BLT with jalapeno bacon, smoked turkey, tomato, lettuce, and, yep, avocado aioli)
1:27 PM Side? I get a side? Veggie chips, yes please
1:29 PM Get out “Single Diner Props,” and write article for work as I wait for food
1:36 PM Geez, that was fast! I only got to third paragraph, and now must eat whilst I’m on a literary roll.
1:38 PM Take first bite
1:38 PM (and 2 seconds) Holy crap….
1:39 PM Mmm….spice….
Back to writing…
1:40 PM Nope, that second quote should go after (grabs chip) the first para….
1:40 PM (and 15 seconds) Woah, don’t you just love extra crunchy chips?
1:48 PM Choices, choices, choices…lick the avocado off my fingers or go for the second half of my sandwich?
1:48 PM (and 20 seconds) How the heck am I gonna eat the second half of my sandwich?
1:48 PM (and 25 seconds) I’m no quitter
1:55 PM Uncle!
Needless to say I highly recommend The Farwell and, by extension, the Eatery on Farwell. They offer unique twists and flavor combinations on your tried and true pub fare – surely a crowd pleaser for even the most “meat and potatoes” Wisconsinite. Try ‘em yourselves…

I hear their Bloodies are tremendous, and absolutely must get back there in the next week or so to try ‘em (think they’ll splash a little Rehorst Gin on top for me?). Hit me up if you wanna join me for a taste test of their Happy Hour…

Yes, I memorized their Happy Hour menu. Bite me.
