Last year, Jennifer and I attended a wedding reception at the Heinemann’s in Greendale before it closed. We had no idea the restaurant had such wonderful space for receptions and the like.
Back at the beginning of this decade, Heinemann’s ran a restaurant in what is now the US Bank building across the street from the state Capitol that I patronized often for great, I’m talkin’ great bakery goods. The rent must have been too much because it was gone much too quickly.
The MJS is looking for Heinemann’s memories. I’m sure that pound cake will be mentioned a lot. I’ll miss the best muffins I’ve ever had.
Tradition. The best thing about tradition is that it does provide great memories. The worst thing about tradition is that it’s sometimes involves something good that finally came to an end.
