Every Friday, Stuff We Missed looks to other Milwaukee publications (and beyond) for, well, stuff we missed throughout the week. This week: The Griffin & Gargoyle!
• Pull up a stool, Tanis Half-Elven, and check this out: A Burlington man wants to build an “immersive themed restaurant and amusement center” in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin—a.k.a. the birthplace of Dungeons & Dragons. The D&D-inspired wonderland would be called The Griffin & Gargoyle, and would include a tavern, an “antiquity shop,” a steampunk cocktail bar, and some axe-throwing lanes in the basement. We are [rolls dice] really excited!
“Our vision is to provide a unique space wherein our customers have the freedom to step out of themselves and share in creative, interactive, and collaborative experiences,” G&G’s website reads. “As we seek to immerse our guests in a true celebration of the genre of fantasy and table top role-playing, we hope to provide an extraordinary adventure that our guests won’t ever forget.”
G&G is projected to open in 2024. In the meantime, you can find more information via its website, or via this piece from the [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]. Here are some renderings. Heroes of the Lance not included.
