Best place to take a client  -  Carmella’s, an Italian Bistro—the best Italian around.

Local beverage of choice  -  Any of the seasonal brews from Titletown Brewing Company in Green Bay.

Favorite sports bar  -  Stadium View in Green Bay.

Best restaurant  -  Plae Bistro in Green Bay. Their atmosphere and pecan-encrusted walleye cannot be beat!

Weekend getaway  -  Door County—so close, yet it can feel like a world away.

Favorite city event  -  Mile of Music—a four-day event held in downtown Appleton each summer featuring hundreds of live sets in dozens of venues. 

Favorite historical resident  -  Harry Houdini. He spent his early years in Appleton, before escaping …

Where to go after a win  -  As an estate planner, I generally avoid wins and losses, but any excuse to celebrate calls for a margarita at Sangria’s Mexican Grill, next to our office.

Favorite thing about your office besides the people  -  The unlimited supply of fun-size candy bars.

Favorite breakfast spot  -  Nicolet Restaurant in De Pere. Their Farmer’s Feed scramble and homemade bread always hit the spot.

Favorite lunch spot  -  Basil Café—the best Thai and Vietnamese food in town.

Favorite movie theater  -  De Pere Cinema Café: a hidden gem that offers table service while you watch a movie.

Best place for people watching  -  Anywhere along College Avenue in downtown Appleton.

Favorite local shop  -  Hey, Daisy! It has a great selection of fun women’s clothes and accessories.

Favorite coffee shop  -  A tie between Luna Café in De Pere and Copper Rock in Appleton and Green Bay.

Favorite pizza joint  -  Gallagher’s Pizza. Their hand-tossed crust is the best.

Favorite city sports moment  -  Super Bowl XLV. This unexpected run to the title might be the state’s favorite sports moment.

Most heartbreaking city sports moment  -  The Packers’ 2014 NFC Championship loss to the Seahawks. That one still hurts.

Place to take out-of-town guests  -  Lambeau Field. With the expansion of the Titletown District, there’s plenty to see and do.

Favorite lesser-known tourist attraction  -  Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay. Time stands still here, and all tickets are just a quarter.
