Fred & Fuzzy's Waterfront Bar & Grill (Part 1)


I apologize for the horizontal rather than vertical presentation of this photo. Shouldn't some mysterious power know which way I want these to appear? Oh well, hold on to your chair and tip your head to the left. If that's too much work, just go on to photo number two.

Next time I'm ordering one of these. The Bloody Mary I had was awesome so I suspect that a Cherry Margarita would be a dream come true.

Meet Slim. He "don't talk and he don't eat either."

I took Fuzzy's picture but it's disappeared from my camera! I swear he was sitting right there at the bar when we left after the sunset. I told him David Frykman had sent us here and then I asked if I could take his picture for my blog. (I apologize Fuzzy, but then, maybe losing your photo is a good thing. I'll have one more reason to return, not that I need another one).

Double-click on the appetizer menu and scroll to the bottom. "How we came to be" is a fun read.

After leaving David Frykman's Studio Gallery and with David's grill and bar recommendation fresh in our minds, we found our way to Fred & Fuzzy's. Early in the afternoon, we drove beside the Bay Ridge Golf Course and found a parking spot where a limited number were available. We strolled down the sloping walkway and were very pleasantly surprised by the sight of this off-the-beaten-path bar and grill. If not for David, I doubt if we'd ever have come upon this delightfully unusual bar and grill. It's unfortunate that we've only now come to know of Fred & Fuzzy's after many years of visiting Door County.

We walked along the gravel foot path, past the fall arrangement of pumpkins and mums to the bar area and the sidewalk that led to the tables and chairs set on the grass at the bay's edge. I captured it all with my camera. Everything was wonderfully casual and yet breathtaking with the water of the bay twinkling in the sun and lapping at the shore.

We weren't hungry yet, so we opted to return for a sandwich later. The waitresses assured us we would have exquisite seats to watch the sunset if we came around 6:30.

Please come back for Part 2 which features our meals, drinks and a handful of the sunset photos I took from our bayside table. As with every entry on my blog, I had a hard time choosing which pictures to present here. I'm still taking an extravagant number of photos when I have my camera with me.

(The only reason I separated this into Part 1 and 2 is because this blog post preparation area was uncooperative and wouldn't let me present all the photos in one post. It froze up on me and I had to work around the glitch. I'll spare you all the frustrating details).
Y'all come back now, ya hear!

Funny how you can go to a place time after time and miss things. Still you have found the place now, so we can all enjoy it with you.

Looking forward to part 2.

Rob: Sounds like you could open a bar and grill featuring Mexican dishes. When you do, I'll take one of each of the items you listed in your comment, with extra sour cream of course.

Lia: Rob and I, what can I say about our gibberish? We're easily entertained pretty much explains the banter between us. Amigos and amis in the blogging world.


Can be quite frustrating when it suddenly freezes during posting...been there & done that especially at my home! Did not experience any problem while I was in Singapore...??? Anyway, gotta love that quote of the day! You truly living a wonderful life Shaddy! xo*

Lenore: My life's not quite as exciting as yours. You were in Singapore while I was five hours from home! You're right though--my life is wonderful. I hope yours is too.

Umm, I went to Home Depot today and purchased the supplies I needed to make a special place in my yard for my blackberry bushes to flourish. LOL

I know it might not be that exciting for some, but watching my garden grow is one of my favorite things in this world. Especially when I can share what I grow with my family and friends.

darksculptures: If you can find excitement in your own backyard, you're ahead of the game. I hope you share your garden with us.
