The Middleton dinner tour begins at 6:00pm where the tour guide will welcome guests out front of the first tasting location, Louisianne's Etc. There the guests will enjoy one of the only fine Creole restaurants in the area for a drink, appetizers, and live piano music. Once the tour departs Louisianne's, they will make the short trek to the Village Green, a historic building in downtown Middleton, where guests get to sip on a very classic Wisconsin cocktail and learn about some of the most notable stories of Middleton's past. After Village Green, the tour will slip out the back door and over to the entree stop of the tour, The Freehouse Pub. Known for being "All Wisconsin, all the time" guests will enjoy a warm meal that uses locally-sourced meat and bread from family-run businesses in the area. Finally guests will make their last journey through downtown Middleton, stopping to talk about two notable buildings, then arriving at Hubbard Avenue Diner for the best part of any meal - dessert! Famous for their pie, Hubbard creates a special tasting specifically for our tour guests to sample while enjoying the fun 50's diner atmosphere that lights up downtown Middleton.
