Weekend two of the Door County Effect was no less exciting than weekend one, perhaps even quite telling of the Chicago influence up in North Bay, WI….it was like “Norm” at cheers; everyone remembered us…uh oh!
Arriving with the sun still up, we immediately set off for the deck to soak in some sun while sipping on suds, Pabst (the fast growing brand in the beer industry) to be specific. After a few hours of transition from city life to Door life, we set off to begin the night, and of course we started at Gordon Lounge, the only place to enjoy North Bay at sunset. After numerous flirtations with the bartender, a few drinks, some apps, and a couple of shots, we got a guided tour of the new restaurant kitchen, and an insider view the future growth of Gordon Lodge. Learning that we were Chicagoans with ever-popular blogs, the owner immediately slipped our way and ensured our time spent was one of hospitality and pleasure; although he failed to buy any of our drinks; no worries, time to move on.
Per our typical Door nighttime path, we stopped at JJ’s, where to my surprise, they remembered me; this can good or bad. Luckily, we had a good reception and the evening looked receptive for the Chicago three (Me, Tantric Ninja, and PH reversed). While JJ’s was fun for a while, our anxiousness guided us to Husby’s.
For some reason, perhaps the fresh air, or maybe because we feel like we can get away with murder, Door County brings out a highly rambunctious spirit in us, and we went with it on this night. Tantric Ninja was quite thirsty and decided that PH and I need be thirsty too. After many quenches of thirst, we soon discovered Tantric Ninja throwing around bar stools for no apparent reason. Perhaps he missed his lady, or maybe it was the fresh air again, but nonetheless, he was feeling that the place needed some redecorating. Soon, the bouncer came by to subdue him, and the Chicago Three pulled it together and decided to meander across the street to Sister Bowl.
Not much doing at Sister Bowl, so we decided to end our night and back from some quality man talk, some munchies, and the development of a new game; steal the other guys phone and read his text messages to his lady; uh oh, I knew this was going to be for me, as I can be a real sap sometimes…OFF TO DAY TWO
