I think the exit for KMHW is Highway K, don't recall the actuall name of the
street. You have to duck under the freeway to get to the frontage road that
you will take north to KMHW.
IMHO, Elliot's pales in comparison to Neu's in Menomonee Falls (the hometown
of the UA100), which carries Delta and General big iron, as well as an
awesome asortment of everything else. Pay with cash and get 10% off your
purchase. Neu's is on the westerly frontage road just south of the Highway
Q exit (same highway you take to KMHW).
Sound's like something to look into someday. But for me, we're
talking serious distance. I'm near Mitchell Field. For whatever
reason, someone decided there shall be no good hardware stores closer
than a radius of 10 miles from the airport. Yeah, some True Values,
but nothing *good*
That 10% off is sounding though.

Many moons ago (perhaps the 70's), when I was in beertown, there
was a restaurant down by the lake called the "Safe House". If it is
still there, you may want to check it out. (You enter through a
phone booth, IIRC).
It's still there, fantastic sandwiches and fries. You can get in if
you know the passphrase, or if you don't know it you get to do something
silly (on camera, of course) for the amusement of the people already
inside. You can go _out_ through the phone booth, through the
hidden passage, but you'll want someone else to walk in front.
It's on "Front street" which is an alley, runs north for a block off
of Wells, just west of water.
I remember that place - on Front Street. Think the sign said "International
Import/Exports" or sumthin' like that. You entered into a small
receptionist's lobby - and spent a few minutes trying to figure out how to
open up the secret door. Blissfully unaware that you were being watched by
the patron's on closed-circuit TV. You *exited* by a phone booth - had to
ask your waitress for the special number.
Think it started in the 70's along with the Spy Boom. By the time I had got
there - early 80's it was pretty run down but still fun.
We are still brewing beer in LaCrosse! It is now called City Brewery. Brands
include City Light and LaCrosse Lager. Plus there are more such as seasonal
brands. They also do a lot of brewing for other companies.
I've been to the "Safe House" myself, about 20 years ago. How time flies!
