This Just In ...

Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.

The following is a public service announcement from This Just In...

Because Jennifer and I do weekly culinary blogs (that will be on hiatus this Sunday), we receive various notices from some very nice places. If you're trying to make Easter reservations at this late date, you're probably out of luck. But this locale has openings (I tried to reserve online and found some openings). You'd better hurry.

Easter Is This Sunday

Easter is this Sunday, April 20th and if you haven't made reservations yet, give us a call today to confirm your ideal time. 

We will be open from 11am to 8pm on Easter Sunday and our Specialty Dinner includes hand-carved ham with parsley boiled potatoes, asparagus, and orange hollandaise sauce. The special is served with soup or salad and fresh oven-baked bread. 

In addition to our Specialty Easter Dinner, our full holiday menu will also be available. Visit our website to view the Easter menu.

Live Jazz music will be available in our lounge. Jack Grassel and Jill Jensen will be performing from 1:30 to 5:30 pm.

Good Friday Fish Fry

Fish Fry at The Packing House during Lent is a Milwaukee Tradition. 

We include a generous portion of hand-breaded and deep fried Icelandic cod, French fries or potato pancakes, house made coleslaw, tartar sauce, and rye bread.

If you've joined us on Good Friday in the past, you'll remember that guests drive great distances to dine with us on this special day. 

So we encourage you to call (414) 483-5054 and reserve a table while they are still available.

Our Drive Thru Window will also be open on Friday from 3pm to 9pm.
