Point Burger Bar in Middleton

I hope they have flood insurance now.

After $800K in flood damage, Point Burger Bar to open

"Point Burger Bar, in what used to be Quaker Steak & Lube, 2259 Deming Way in Middleton, had $800,000 in flood damage, Ward said. He lost 37 70-inch TVs and had major damage to video games, equipment and walls. Ward didn't have flood insurance. All of his video games -- 19 -- needed to be rebuilt. One, worth $45,000, was a total loss, Ward said...Ward owns three other Point Burger Bars, serving Point beer, in and near Milwaukee. This is his first in the Madison area."

Flood insurance is expensive and hard to get. Do you have it?

No I don't live in a paved over former wetland. And don't have 37 70-inch TVs. My place didn't flood Aug 20.

Forget the flood. They want us to drink Point Beer?

Yeah.
While it isn't a brand that I seek out, from what I recall from a trip up north, there really wasn't anything WRONG with it. It's just sort of a gateway to real craft beer.

Heart Stopper is a good name for it.

Point Burger Bar offers nearly infinite burger possibilities

"Burgers start at $7.95 for a turkey burger and a few others, and go up to $17.95 for the “heart stopper” specialty burger with two beef patties, bacon, five kinds of cheese, mushrooms and onions."

Sounds like they are copying this place in Las Vegas: Heart Attack Grill.

Dexter's used to have one called the Defibrillator. I don't remember all the ingredients, but it included a fried egg.
