Behind a no-nonsense façade of pale-yellow brick donated from a fictional wizard, regulars and new friends gather at Parkside Pub for frosty brews, house-made burgers, and raucous feasts of tasty bar-and-grill cuisine. The pub buzzes with a healthy air of revelry and irreverence, as evidenced by its annual Turkey Testicle Festival, an event peppered with bands, a huge heated tent, and a celebration of woefully underappreciated giblets. Parkside also hums with the sounds of darts whizzing through the air and the buzzing neon interior. Meanwhile, live music vibrates outside underneath a leafy canopy in the brick-lined beer garden. Every Friday night, diners sup on tasty seafood during fish fries, and traditional Door County–style fish boils fill the air with mouthwatering aromas during summer months.
A combination frozen-yogurt and coffee shop, OozCafe invites patrons to craft their own frosty treats and customize steaming cups of Lavazza coffee. A rotating cast of 12 yogurt flavors such as peanut butter, cake batter, and eight types of vanilla pours forth from machines into cups quivering with excitement. Thirty-five toppings and syrups stand at the ready to top mounds of yogurt with mints, cookies, and candies. Nearby, coffee and tea drinks ranging from chilled oolong to pumpkin-spice chai lattes wash down bites of yogurt.
Sammy’s Bar & Grill keeps its guests entertained with darts, weekend karaoke, cornhole tournaments, live bands, plus a menu packed with savory American pub food. Specialty burgers, like the chili cheeseburger and pizza burger, along with turkey and bacon clubs and italian beef sandwiches, pair with Sammy’s selection of draft and bottle beers. The family-friendly bar and grill also offers a kid’s menu and soft drinks to appease even the pickiest of your family members or pickiest of strangers befriended on the drive over.
