Every Friday, Stuff We Missed looks to other Milwaukee publications (and beyond) for, well, stuff we missed throughout the week.
• Here are the facts: In December 2019, Friday’s Front Row Sports Grill at Miller Park will close. In January 2020, a new restaurant will take its place. That new restaurant will be called—buckle up for this—the “Restaurant To Be Named Later.” Seriously. That’s the name. “The Restaurant To Be Named Later will be operated by Delaware North Sportservice,” explains a press release. “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.”
Here’s the good stuff: The “Restaurant To Be Named Later” announcement was accompanied by a three-minute video of Bob Uecker! You see, Ueck was apparently tasked with coming up with a new restaurant name, and, well, “Restaurant To Be Named Later” is what he came up with. The “Restaurant At The End Of The Universe” and “Fur Ball” were already taken, apparently.
#ProTip: Don’t ask Ueck to help name your baby.
