    The best thing to pair with a little dog such as myself is a little kid.  They love to play, get messy, and eat foods that stick to their face, and so do I.  That’s why I’m excited that German Fest is featuring a lineup of kid-friendly attractions and activities for the 2008 Fest.  Here’s a run-down of the kiddie-fun that has my tail wagging:     All Weekend Long: German Fest...

There is a new location this year, so look for the card tourney on the north end of the grounds across from the Potawatomi Bingo Tent. Anyway, if you need a refresher course in sheepshead, I...

  Frankie, here, with more news about German Fest. One of the things that gets me all fired up about racing is knowing that at the finish line, there’s always a treat waiting for me. Plain and simple, I love food. Despite the family resemblance, hot dogs, brats and sausages are among my favorites eats. “Naschen,” that’s German for eating, is one of the biggest reasons people come ...
