Perk up
In case the snow flakes make it hard for you to read it, the name of this place is Kletzsch Perk. It is across the street from Kletzsch Park and is a pleasant and well-lit place for coffee (It is also famous for being across the street from Greg's pad...but I digress). You will also want to know that I grew up in the Sherman Park area of Milwaukee (and, yes, there is a Sherman Park).
When a gas station in that area closed down and remained abandoned for years, some enterprising fellow bought it and made it into a coffee shop he named Sherman Perk. The one above is his more recent venture and is a few blocks from my home (and the river and Greg's pad).
Small business enterprises are alive and well in this area...and the paddlers around here have yet another place to get caffinated.
Paddle safe...

Now I know what they mean when they say, "The joke tanked." No PUNishment intended :)

I gather you're drinking coffee after your paddle! Coffee before paddling puts me back on the beach within 15 minutes or so!
