09:09 am - BURNING QUESTIONS
By Cap'n Spatch, Age 30

How can anyone in good faith recommend a restaurant in the Wisconsin Dells that sells shirts that say "I GOT CRABS AT CRABBY'S" and advertises its location as "Behind the BP Station"?

I'm just checking.

How could you NOT recommend such a restaurant?

I'm gonna have to look for it the next time I'm over there.

Okay, but if you suddenly develop an urgent need for penicillin, don't come running to me.

True. They've got a gimmick. And sometimes the best restaurants are located "behind the BP Station"....

Then again, how far is the Wisconsin Dells from the ocean? Hmmm.....

If you do go, be sure to post a full report.

Well, they can go to Dejope Bingo, which is just south of Madison, too.

There's something about cruising the main drag in Myrtle Beach with one's brothers, saying "Hey" in 5 syllables to all the ladies going by.

I so want to ride the Hades coaster at Mt. Olympus. So so so so so so want.

Honey, because it's the Dells.
The Dells are a space-time anomaly.

I read that and shrugged. It's the Dells and The Dells are all about the tackiness. The Dells don't do class EVER.

That's true. I just had to advise a family that, uh, no, you're not going to find a Thai restaurant in the Dells.

But if you want to eat pancakes in a restaurant shaped like a riverboat so that "you'll feel like you're dining on the water, but you're not!" then boy howdy, do I have a suggestion for you.

I think they have an Indian restaurant though (and no, not Native American LOL)!! And yes, there is a Chinese restaurant across the street. :)

Cap'n Spatch! There's a DUCK headed straight at us, bearing E-SE!

It's the Slopjar! She's skippered by the dread pirate Ian Continents, Cap'n! The Scourge of the Dells! Shall we close for battle, sir?

Well, I doubt everyone who goes there actually eats there. They probably make more money on the doodads.
