Upon entrance, the Chancery has the feel of an old, traditional Catholic Church. The wooden side-rails give the impression of old church pews, and the stain-glass windows take you back to images of Jesus. This feel suddenly changes as you walk up the entrance ramp into the reception area. The floor is made of new, modern tiling, and the stain-glass windows disappear altogether. Replacing the windows on the wall are posters of Wisconsin sports teams, Chancery advertisements, or silly, "cheesy" Wisconsin phrases and jokes. When lead into the dining area by the hostess, the two atmospheres mix together in one room. A large stain-glass window looks out onto State Street, while the same posters hang next to the window on the wall. In the stalls along the wall, there are wooden benches that may really have once been church pews. However, in the middle of the dining area there are also tables with checkered table cloths that remind anyone of their favorite sports bar. To remind them even more of a sports bar, there are flat-screen TV's playing the Monday Night Football Packers game against the Vikings and Brett Favre. At all of the tables and stalls, seated in the table chairs and possible church pews are friendly people smiling, conversing, laughing, and most of all enjoying their delicious personalized pasta dish - round pasta noodles with the ridges in them and the hole in the middle topped with red, tomato-looking, marinara sauce and five large meatballs peaking the mountain. Between, the tables flow friendly waiters and waitresses with their black and yellow cheese shirts and their red aprons, collecting personal pasta orders, passing out drinks, taking away the unfinished plate of several noodles and a meatball with red sauce spilling over the side, and mostly having fun talking to and joking with the visitors. Finally, that huge plate of thick, tender, juicy Chicken Alfredo arrives and the hungry child pushes aside his napkin-full of white and yellow buttery popcorn to enjoy the meal he came for.
