This is a fun place to have a pint. The sausage rapped with bread dough is to die for. It is a nice snack to have with a pint.

This bridge was recently restored. It is more stable then the old bridge. A great view into the Kinnickinnic River gorge next to Glen Park. Worth the visit if you are in the area. Great memories of it when I was a child.
