Is there life after Smut n' Eggs?

It's still too cold and wet to head out to Glenway Golf Course yet, but now that he's no longer producing weekend entertainment in the form of Smut n' Eggs on Park Street, maybe Class of 1966 alumnus Rich Bennett (on left in white shirt and sandals) will be able to spend more time on the links and less time cooking links.

Yesterday, The Capital Times featured a story, written by the always delightful Samara Kalk Derby, about the sports bar that's scheduled to open in the building that once housed Bennett's on the Park. The new bar will have a "1920s speakeasy theme."

If you're nostalgic for the old place, check out cfarivar's collection of Smut n' Eggs tagged photos on Flicker, including this one of the menu.

And now, I really think it's time to scrape off the plates and move one to another subject -- but, hey! Smut n' Eggs seems to attract more readers than "Breakfast and old boyfriends." Nonetheless, I'd rather enjoy some luscious food photos from one of maki's Flickr photo sets (many of which also appear on her food blog, Just Hungry), than stare at (or eat) something like this egg concoction.

Besides, it's not too soon to start thinking about some other links that have nothing to do with golf balls or clubs: bratwurst. Right now (about 9:37 a.m. CST), there are only 74 days and 23 minutes until the start of The World's Largest Bratfest, one of the highlights of Madison's social season.

Note: The photo of Rich Bennett at Glenway Golf course was taken on September 29, 2006 (probably by Gerhard Ellerkamp, Class of 1966). It's one of the scores of photos of alumni from the Class of 1966 posted on their Flickr site.
