Would love it if they put a Chotchkie's in there. Now THAT place has some serious flair.

Yah seriously...it is mostly volunteer work (college athletes in some cases) and they get little to no training on the system etc. Just getting money for their cause.

This restaurant is very unlikely (it won’t) to have those types of employees. Likely hired employees to bartender and wait tables.

As for the name...epic fail. It’s funny at first because it is so dumb...if that is actually it yikes.

Had to do a double take on the formatting of the name to get that it's truly called that. Yes, that's dumb. There's a hundred Milwaukee or Brewers references or puns that would work. Hell, make a Seattle Pilots reference.

Just a Bit Outside was probably perfect, tbh. It has everything, local, timeless, a little corny, and a reference to Uke longer after he's gone.

Perfection. Although they could use that name for the horrific smoking errrr dining area just outside of the restaurant.

For 10 seconds, you had me thinking "that place is real?" [laughing]

The Delaware Sportservice employees. The same ones that work the On Deck event and run the Wisconsin State Fair Expo Center events. I understand who the volunteers are that work at Miller Park, and actually for the most part the volunteers do a better job than the Delaware employees.

"Just a Bit Outside." Shut it down. This is the perfect name. The restaurant is literally partially outside too (if the roof is open I suppose). Easy acronym ("JBO's" or "JaBO's"). Missed opportunity.

Restaurant to be named later sounds like a funny quip that would be used in an article announcing the change if the name wasn't yet decided, but to actually call it that? Not smart.

I was thinking just outside the walls of the playing field....but yah, what an entirely logical name on many levels.

I get going there on non-gamedays or pre or post game, but I never understood the people that hung out there during the game rather than just ordering a hotdog and beer at their seats. Really never understood those that would hang out in the beer garden during the game with those 2 small TV's at the bar.

When I would sit at the bleachers we would stop down at the beer garden to get a long island, but once you couldn't bring them inside, never had much of a use for that place.

Hopefully now that it is ran by Delaware North the rules will be relaxed.

I'd take a Shenaniganz.

I don't do that either, but you underestimate the number of people who don't care about the game and would struggle to list 3 players. With the roof and always-pleasant climate at the stadium, it basically became a summer-long festival. It's as much a community gathering place as it is a game. You can get in the door for $5 most of the time and then you're just basically at a bar. Look at how crowded the smoking area is. People literally get a ticket to the game and sit on the patio the whole night.

Friday's was also very popular whenever it was brutally hot.

Well done, perfect name.

That name's literally in the video. Uke says it and they make fun of it. I didn't make it up, lol.

I don't live in Milwaukee and I have driven through Milwaukee a few times on the way to other places and I always stop at Friday's just to soak up the vibe of the place and think about baseball. I have done the same thing in the Phoenix Friday's which is more or less the same set up.

From this link:

The Restaurant To Be Named Later will be operated by Delaware North Sportservice. The menu will celebrate a myriad of Wisconsin favorites, with twists on classic food and beverage offerings. The space will also be refreshed with updated décor.


Looking at their website, Delaware North operates the 1919 Kitchen & Tap in Green Bay. I'd imagine it'll be similar to that.

Nice find. 1919 is a great spot and always at capacity before and after packers games. I will also tip my hat to Friday's. I loved it. It is an amazing place to catch a game and socialize.

I also agree with this name. Just a Bit Outside Kitchen and Tap. It's the right kind of perfect for Milwaukee. 1970 Kitchen & Tap just doesn't have the right ring to it.

Using more Uecker things, you could probably make something around "Left and Deep" since it's in left field and all.

I'm not a fan of using a catchphrase from a movie that wasn't centered around the Brewers. So unless they are using a Mr. 3000 quote, no thanks.

I actually think that was probably one of the hang-ups as to why they didn't use it. It clearly got tossed out there by somebody in their brass.

Why not something simple like "Uke's Pub" or "Mr. Baseball's"?

"A Restaurant To Be Named Later" will be forever confusing.
