Death By Custard
Now I admit to being a big fan of Leon's Custard - - Milwaukee's finest - - on S. 27th Street, and always found it wonderfully ironic that the venerable cholesterol outlet virtually shares the intersection at W. Oklahoma Ave. with St. Luke's Hospital, where heart procedures are the house special, but nothing tops this mailer I got from another buainess on S. 27th Street - - the historic Forest Home Cemetery.
FREE LEON'S CUSTARD (double-scoop!) WHEN YOU SHOW THIS CARD AT OUR OFFICE
Pure Milwaukee, aina?
The St. Luke's dietician giving me advice after a little time in the cardiac unit assured me that an occasional -- stressing occasional -- trip to Leon's was not forbidden. So I decided life was worth living after all.
I've only been there once this summer, so I figure I have a visit or two yet this year in the bank.
At least the 3 locations are geographically convenient to one another. Will facilitate walking? . . . or at least use of public transportation. That is, if you have the good sense to take the bus from Leon's to FH Cemetary and pass away there. (perhaps resting up against a sunny tombstone, the last mouthful of custard drooling down your satisfied chin . . . .
Oh my. Purely Milwaukee, indeed. Good stuff Jim.
Old, but not the best.
