Loving the cold weather?

You really have to like the cold weather to live in Northern Wisconsin. Fortunately there are enough winter activities to keep us outdoor loving people busy all four seasons of the Year. For the athletic types the Badger State Games is running for the next three weekends, Winterfest is only two short weeks away, and the Woodson Art Museum will have their snow sculptors in residence next week to craft some fleeting homages that will stick around only as long as the cold weather.


Business Member News

National brands and large companies spend a whole lot of money to get their name on the first page of Google. That’s why 50-80% of the time when you search for something, you see their name first. RelyLocal Wausau can cut through that clutter by providing a directory and smartphone app exclusively for locally owned businesses. You won’t find the Olive Garden in RelyLocal, but you will find the Best of Wausau.

Kregers Bakery and Deli

I love Kreger’s for their donuts and bread, but now they have yummy homemade French Onion Soup! New at Kregers! Comes with a piece of our own garlic toast and a slice of provolone cheese. Come warm up with them on this cold day! Kreger’s Bakery and Deli

Closing Thoughts

Michael-and-carl-men-who-cook-2014Carl and I had a great time supporting the YWCA Wausau as chefs for their 12th annual Men Who Cook event. It was a full house and both the guests and chefs had a fantastic time. Thank you to the sponsors that helped make this event a success including RelyLocal Business Members AbbyBank , CJ’s Catering of Wausau, and Vino Latte. Hope to see you this summer at the YWCA’s Guys Who Grill.
