"The Antithesis of a Drive-In Restaurant"

Inspired by food-dispensing kiosks in remote European locations, a restauranteur in Madison, Wisconsin is planning to build a cafe that can ONLY be accessed by pedestrians and bicyclists.
Food would be served on plastic or ceramic dishes at seating made from tree trunks. Coffee and juice would be dispensed in purchasable mugs that would fit in a bike holder. And to capture the zeitgeist of the Wisconsin north woods, beer and wine would also be on the menu.

The proposed location near a golf course is "the one place where you can't hear any cars in the middle of the city," beside a bike path that sees 2,600 users/day.  The city's mayor has indicated he supports the proposal.

Eh, read about this when I was at my parents' place in madison this weekend. Gonna go out on a limb and assume that this isn't going to help Madison's many stereotypes. But it is an interesting idea.

Guess who's moving to Madison!?!?!? No, really, I've always dreamed of a place like this. I wish this guy the best of luck, because he may win the world record for quickest billionaire success.
