I have mixed feelings about the Bronze Fonz, but for the most part, I find the statue kitschy, fun and very Milwaukee. Last spring, OnMilwaukee.com posted its traditional April Foolsâ€™ Day edition featuring dozens of satirical articles, and for one of them, I conducted an interview with the Bronze Fonz. (He was rather quiet that day.)
So, when I heard that Palomino is hosting a "Franz & Fonz" promotion through the end of the month, I knew I had to write about it.
Hereâ€™s the deal: Anytime this month, bring in a photo of yourself with the Bronze Fonz (the statue is on the Riverwalk, just south of Wells Street) and youâ€™ll receive a free Franziskaner, which is a Bavarian beer.
The photos will be on display at the bar and the Palomino staff will pick the best one. The winner will recieve a $75 gift card to Best Buy and, of course, life-long bragging rights.
What a great idea! Way to go Palamino.
This weekend my wife and I had lunch at the busy Rock Bottom and noticed a few stragglers across the river getting their picture taken. Why doesn't some bright entrepeneur open up an "Arnold's Drive in" in the open restaurant space next to the Fonz?? Ok maybe the Drive i is a stretch but we've got to do better than what we have now.
