Must be a do-it-yourself job cuz I've yet to see any trucks or vans with drywall/painting/flooring/kitchen equipment etc/etc/etc business logos parked here.

And what do I stumble across shortly after I return home from a bike ride.
Fitzgerald's in Middleton closes after 30 years. (Wisconsin State Journal, 6/23/2017)
A recording at the restaurant says, "Fitzgerald's is currently closed -- forever" and explains that it will reopen under the name Star BBQ in about three months.
The message says the business was purchased by a Korean family and will become a Korean barbecue with "Benihana tables." "
Call us back and keep watching the sign out front," it says.Keep watching the sign? That's what I'm doing.
Restaurant News: Fitzgerald's supper club getting Asian infusion. (Wisconsin State Journal, 9/15/2016)
Fitzgerald's has never before strayed from its steaks-and-seafood identity. The 10,000-square-foot, 300-seat restaurant was a supper club when Jerry Fitzgerald opened it in 1988 and remained a supper club after John Kaul bought it in 1996.
After Sofra discontinued their dinner services last fall, the Middleton Kiwanis changed their meeting location to fading Fitzgerald's. It was a disastrous experience. We're now meeting at Sprecher's. Makes you wonder how the Star BBQ will fare.

Previously, Fitzgerald's billed itself as "the place for steaks".
