Quote:
My friend Alice got tickets for us to attend the Green Bay Packers' home game against the Denver Broncos this month. I was very excited to be going to the game with her . . . and almost as excited to finally get to go see the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, located inside the Atrium of Lambeau Field. I had bought the tickets back in March when my soccer organization held some meetings there, but never found the time to actually go see the Hall of Fame. This was the perfect opportunity to do so.We arrived at the field as the parking lots opened at 11:15a (it was a 3:15p game time). We parked and opted for lunch first at Curly's Pub. Afterwards we returned to the first floor to take in t...Read More

Quote:
Curly's Pub is named for the Packers' founder Curly Lambeau and is located inside the Atrium of Lambeau Field. Since we arrived to the stadium four hours early, we had plenty of time to take in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame plus grab a bite to eat beforehand. I'm glad we arrived early and opted for lunch first. We got inside Curly's around 11:45p and by the time we were leaving at 12:45p, they already had a lengthy wait for a table.When you arrive you will have a choice of dining in the bar area, which is very large and serves the same menu as your other option, the dining room. We chose the dining room for comfort, nice tables with regular chairs (rather than the high bar chairs ...Read More

Restaurant | "It's Not Just About Brett"

Quote:
I'm not really sure what to say about my feelings regarding the legendary quarterback and a most certain future NFL Hall of Famer. Brett Favre was the stud of the Green Bay Packers for many years and as it turns out, not only figuratively but perhaps literally too if the stories of the past couple of years prove true.He set many NFL records including most consecutive games started, most career touchdown passes and most career interceptions. I think if there isn't a note in the record books for most retirements, there should be, because Mr. Favre would earn that distinction as well.I have angst still today over how Favre acted in the limelight that is the media circus of the N...Read More

The Oneida Walk of Legends

Story/Tip

Oneida Nation Walk of Legends Photo, Green Bay, Wisconsin
Quote:
One of the more interesting things to do is take a leisurely stroll along the mile long loop near Lambeau Field known as the "Oneida Walk of Legends". The walk has 24 granite and steel statue monuments featuring 13 tributes to past Packers' greats including Reggie White, Ray Nitschke, Brett Favre and Bart Starr.Created by the Oneida Nation as a historical tribute not only to the legacy of the Green Bay Packers, the monuments also serve as an educational opportunity for tourists to learn about the culture and history of the Oneida Nation Tribe of Indians of Green Bay who have deep ties to the early professional football in the community.Here is the complete list and location of...Read More

Hotel | "Fun Retreat Location for the Family"

Quote:
Right in the middle of Titletown USA on Lombardi Avenue is the Tundra Lodge Resort, Waterpark and Conference Center (their full name). Located just blocks from Lambeau Field, it is the perfect location for a family trip that takes in all that Green Bay is about . . . namely the reigning Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers.This resort hotel was one of the two we used for our group's housing needs for our annual meeting. You wouldn't think it, but March is actually a very busy time for resort properties that have indoor waterpark facilities. Tundra Lodge is much like what you would find in the Wisconsin Dells area but is closer and more convenient not only for those living in the Fox Ci...Read More

I was fortunate to experience a Packers football game on a crisp fall Sunday evening about ten years ago. The green & gold won over the visiting Detroit Lions that night but that was just the icing on the cake. Even with our nosebleed seats, we were at the legendary Lambeau Field, watching Brett Favre and company playing America’s Game. As much as John Madden may gush about Green Bay’s football stadium, I assure you, words and photos cannot do this place justice.Since that time, they have done a full renovation and facelift, not only on the stadium inside, but also the exterior, creating a real year-round tourist destination here in the small market home that is the Mecca for cheese...Read More

For this trip, I was the meeting planner for our association's annual meeting. Our event was a relatively small affair for an association, with just 150-175 attendees. That mattered not, however, as the staff of Lambeau Field and Levy Foods (their food/beverage company) were exceptional.As I documented back in 2008, Lambeau Field underwent a vast expansion which included creating the social and meeting space known as "The Atrium". Located on the fourth level of the actual stadium, it is a very lovely space for meetings, receptions and other gatherings of people.The "Legends Room" is actually a collection of four breakout rooms that can be used together to form one large func...Read More
