Member Monday: Postscript Pub

Whether you’re looking for a new local hangout or a friendly place to host your next family reunion, the Postscript Pub in Delavan is the place to meet, greet, and have a great bite to eat.  Since opening in 2018, owner Fred Lander has been reenvisioning what it takes to be a place for everyone, and he sure has succeeded. 

Located in the old Elk’s Lodge across from Delbrook Golf Course, The Postscript Pub can be found at 627 South 2nd St just five blocks south of the Phoenix Park Bandshell. 

Serving up pub style fare, Postscript Pub prides itself on serving the people!  Offering lunch, dinner, and Sunday Brunch,  there is never a bad time to dine in the spacious dining room. With menu items ranging from pancakes, to chicken wings, to homemade pizzas, there is something for everyone on the menu.  And with daily specials and Friday Fish Fry there is always yummy  to nosh and nibble on.  “We offer family friendly dining for a reasonable price, which I think can’t be beat,” remarked Lander.  

Of course a true Wisconsin pub would not be complete without a wide selection of brews and booze.  With over 22 beers, 12 wines, and a variety of spirits, you can enjoy your favorite adult beverage alongside a fantastic meal.  Be sure to catch game day specials and Happy Hours every week!

The Postscript Pub can also host your next event.  With spacious indoor and outdoor seating areas as well as a four acres of outdoor space perfect for large tents and stages, Postscript Pub can accommodate any event you may be planning.  “We’ve hosted so many events in the past! We’ve held weddings, birthday parties, retirement parties, you name it we’ve hosted it,” said Lander, “With plenty of seating, open space, parking, and on-site entertainment, all you need to provide is the people!” 

Just in time for summer, Lander is excited to welcome guests to the all new Postscript Pub Biergarten! Customers can sip on their favorite brews on the beautiful new patio and enjoy brats, burgers, and more fresh off the grill.  Biergarten goers can also enjoy the convenience of an outdoor smoking section and beautiful views of neighboring Delbrook Golf Course.  

“As a long time resident and business owner, Walworth County is a great place to be in business,” said Lander “ We truly appreciate our customers and our customers in turn appreciate our hospitality.  We couldn’t do this without them, and I am very excited to welcome more and more into Postscript Pub.”

This summer, Lander  plans on expanding dining operations to include a to-go window for curbside pickup and expanded Biergarten service.  Visit postscriptpub.com or call (262) 275-6817 for more information.  “Stop on in and see us soon, neighbors!”

Celebrating Memorial Day Safely In Walworth County

Memorial Day Weekend is typically the kick-off to the summer season here in Walworth County. With the drastic changes brought on by COVID-19, our holiday will definitely look a little different this year, but that does not mean we cannot have fun. Here are six ideas to help celebrate Memorial Day safely here in Walworth County:

  1. Grillouts Galore: Grillmasters across the county are getting ready to fire up their grills. Whether you’re cooking for two or (a socially distant) ten, be sure to pick up your favorite steaks, burgers, and sausages curbside from Lake Geneva Country Meats and Wilson Farm Meats. Don’t forget the condiments from Lake Geneva Cannery! Be sure to place your orders before May 25th!
  2. Donuts, Drive Thrus, and Pies: If you missed out on the Mother’s Day Orchard Drive Thru at Royal Oak Farm Orchard, you’re in luck! Stop by Saturday May 23rd, between 9am and 4pm for a scenic drive through the orchards and a donut fundraiser. For every order of donuts placed, $2 of the proceeds will be donated to the Folds of Honor Foundation. Additionally, the first 100 veterans or active duty military to visit the orchard will receive a FREE slice of apple pie. Pre-orders are strongly encouraged as this event is sure to sell out!
  3. Decorate with Locally Made Decor: Redecorating your deck can bring new life and energy into your living spaces. You’re probably going to be spending more and more time in your own backyard this summer, so why not spruce up your space with unique patriotic and summer pieces from local artists and craftsman at the Cornerstone Shop and Gallery. Shop online for curbside pickup, or take a peek in person.
  4. Boatin’ and Floatin’: Wether you are launching your own boat from Gage Marine, renting a sanitized stand-up paddle board from Marina Bay Boat Rentals, or simply inflating your own inner tube, enjoy the water and try to remain socially distant.
  5. Afternoon Strolls: Walworth County has plenty of scenic paths perfect for an afternoon walk. Stroll the streets of Downtown Delavan or hike the banks of White River County Park. Consider planning your route through a nearby cemetery to pay respect to fallen heroes who may be laid to rest there.
  6. Bottles and Bonfires: Do your memorial day plans call for relaxing fireside with a nice bottle of wine? Pick up your favorite blend from or try something entirely new from our favorite local wineries. Between Staller Estate Winery, Studio Winery, The Bottle Shop, and Northleaf Winery, you’re sure to find your new summer drink!

No matter your plans may be, stay safe and continue to practice your best social distancing techniques. What are your plans for Memorial Day Weekend? Let us know in the comments below.

Featured Organization: GLAS Education

43178532_384801728722149_7816662825987735552_nGLAS Education (Geneva Lake Astrophysics and STEAM) was formed by former Yerkes Observatory staff after the University of Chicago closed the observatory last fall with the goal of keeping the education and outreach in the Geneva Lake area. Walworth County is lucky to be home to such a unique, educational gem and we’re excited to share what we learned through our interview with GLAS!

 

What kind of programs does GLAS offer?

GLAS offers Star Parties, planetarium shows, drone programs, and educational programs for students. While most of their specific programs are geared towards children and young adults, their Star Parties are very much for people of all ages!

The McQuown Scholars program is one that was carried over from Yerkes where students can join programs like the LENSS project designing a light pollution sensor. Students can also join the SEO observing group where they use a remote telescope in California to collect data and images.

Where are you located?

You can find the GLAS office at 186 Elkhorn Rd. in Williams Bay! Star Parties are held at The Riviera in Lake Geneva.

What is the importance of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) education?

Exposure to STEAM allows students to develop problem-solving, analytical, and creative thinking. These are skills that can be applied during everyday life. STEAM education can also allow students to pursue challenging and fulfilling careers!

What is the most unique thing about GLAS?

GLAS Education is renowned for their work in making astronomy accessible to the blind/visually impaired and the deaf/hard of hearing communities! GLAS is part of the IDATA (Innovators Developing Accessible Tools for Astronomy) Project, which is a National Science Foundation funded project intended to design accessible tools for astronomy.

Are there any upcoming events at GLAS?

Yes! There is one final Star Party at the Riviera Ballroom in downtown Lake Geneva on August 29th.

What does GLAS like the most about being located in Walworth County?

Walworth County is a great place to be located because there is a strong sense of community here!
