And just like that 2016 has begun. From an outdoor career perspective 2015 started well, was almost a career ending disaster by summer, and managed to end in the most fantastic manner. It always am…

I wish I was up this early because I was going ice fishing instead of going to work.

Being an adult kind of sucks.

Story
Introduction

I’m simply a 6 foot tall blond who’s not afraid to get a little dirty, I managed to marry an utterly non-hunting musician, an incredibly supportive man who lets me tromp around the woods by myself and go kill big things. He loves to cook which is handy since I DETEST cooking – I kill it, he grills it. It works rather well.

I love to hunt, fish, hike, kayak, and so much more. I own an 1800 pound Percheron named Champ and live for all things outdoors. Everything that’s happened in my life has molded me and made me a better person.

On top of being a published outdoor writer, I’m a professional wedding and portrait photographer (www.zylkaphotography.com) and work a regular 40 hour work week in human resources for the largest Health Care Organization in the Midwest.

Pretty unimpressed with the food. Everything was very bland, except the hashbrown casserole which just tasted weird period. Originally the "Blackened Haddock" caught my eye but I just couldn't bring myself to pay $17 for HADDOCK! Instead I had the $17 Fisherman's Platter, the pan fried walleye was good but the deep fried bluegill and deep fried perch was extremely disappointing. They tasted exactly the same: like a flour batter. No seasoning at all. Our waitress was very busy but that's no excuse for poor service. She never volunteered what the soup of the day was, I had to ask what it was when she asked "soup or salad?". I also had to ask "what are my choices?" When she asked "what kind of potato would you like?" She brought my soup and we then waited almost 40 minutes before we were brought our entrees! Pretty disappointed overall.

Absolutely excellent. Stopped in on a whim on my lunch hour, ordered a Dragon Roll, California Roll and Beef Negimaki. All were excellent and I'd highly recommend the Beef Negimaki. They were super friendly and very quick. And they included both fork and chopsticks with the meal. The decor is stunning, its beautiful art deco with traditional Japanese touches here and there. I'd definitely go back.

Very good, the sandwich was creative, the Mac and cheese was runny but still tasty. I'd definitely come back and try some of the other sandwiches.

This is the second time (and the last) we ordered from here. The first time I got very sick. This time we received the wrong order. When we called they offered us 10% off our next order. The food was very bland, and when my husband began eating we found HAIR in the meal. We just threw it all away and re-ordered our dinner from another Chinese restaurant - a very expensive lesson learned. I would definitely NOT recommend this place.

Not sure what just happened but I called this company, when he answered he just said "hello?", not sure I even called the correct number since these was no business identified, I ask "is this alternative design roofing?" he says "sorry can't talk right now" and literally hangs up the phone. Very unprofessional in my opinion.

Excellent pizza, we had the Fun Guy and the Wild "Pie" and they were amazing! Kindred was an incredible server, the ambiance was great and I highly recommend it!
