Sonic Boom In Waukesha
This is this blog's 3,000th posting, so most of the stardust accompanying this historic event in Wisconsin electronic media achievement is owed through pure coincidence to a link to Journal Sentinel Darryl Enriquez's piece about a new designation he has unearthed about the city that makes up his beat:
Waukesha, we learn, will soon become become the first Wisconsin community hosting and boasting two Sonic Drive-in restaurants.
Will we see "Waukesha, The Sonic City" signs anytime soon? Maybe - - if Timmermann Field were upgraded to take F-16's.
Waukesha used to be "Spring City" because so much clean water literally bubbled to the surface there, creating a locale known for bottling companies, spas and train (yes!) cars loaded with health-conscious visitors looking to "take the waters."
So - - things change.
Had there been a different mindset out Waukesha way over the years, perhaps the city would not be paying consultants hundreds of thousands of continuing dollars for a likely plan to divert Lake Michigan water - - at a potential political cost to the region, and a financial tab of $60 million that might eat up a disproportionate share of possible federal stimulus funding.
Anyway - - I might give one of the Sonics a nostalgic try even if I wish Waukesha's springs and the land above and surrounding them had been better preserved.
And I am still partial to Rochester's Deli, with the great cornbeef and homemade desserts available in the historic downtown as the place to grab lunch in Waukesha.
