The Launching Pad
221 North Airport Drive
Shawano, WI 54166

To Whom It May Concern:

Friday, October 19, 2007, I asked my instructor if she would like to go out to eat after class she said yes and asked where I wanted to eat, I told her lets go to ??The Launching Pad? in Shawano. Miss Barnes had never eaten at or heard of your establishment. After entering your restaurant/bar I asked Mr. Anderson the bartender at the bar how long of a wait it would be for a table he said about a half hour. I asked can we have a seat at the bar and place our order here and it would be fine if we eat dinner at the bar. He said that would be OK. I attempted to make friendly conversation with him he became very offensive and ill-mannered with me. I asked him how he was doing tonight because he did not look happy he said, ??Just get to it and order now.? When he spoke with the company I was in he was very respectful. I asked Miss Barnes If it was just me or is this bartender a racist I was the only Native American in the restaurant/bar as far as we could see. After Miss Barnes and her mother observed the utterly indigent disrespectful manner I was treated in your establishment because of my ethnicity Miss Barnes stated that she would never patronize your establishment again nor will I. Our horrific experience did not end there every time the bar tender walked past me he did not make eye contact and when he did he looked at me with repulsion as if what was I still doing in ??.? Mr. Anderson asked everyone in my party if they needed their drinks refreshed except me and when I tried to get his attention I was ignored. We waited for our food and watched customers who came into your establishment after us and they were being served their dinner. We sat for over an hour then finally we were served our food. When asked who ordered the poor mans lobster I said, ??I did? Mr. Anderson rudely dropped my dinner on the bar and did not even place my food in front of me.

In closing, I felt it is imperative that you are made aware of the disrespectful thoughtless nature Native Americans are treated by your employees at The Launching Pad. My thought for your employee right now is not of anger or despair; it is of pity because my Native community deserves so much more than what your establishment has offered. I will be mailing a copy of this letter to civil rights groups, and news organizations who are interested in exposing racism in Shawano, Wisconsin.

Respectfully yours, Traveling Feather Woman

The Launching Pad has been written up numerous times in papers regarding their awesome burgers. If you are looking for a great burger(and they aren't that greasy), you need to find The Launching Pad. They also have a great selection of great sandwiches if everyone isn't in the mood for a burger. It is a favorite place for pilots of small planes as the airport is across the street. You may even see a helicopter land! SAVOR AND ENJOY YOUR BURGER WHEN YOU VISIT AS IT WILL BE AWESOME!

This bar has the best food ever! The burgers are good and greasy and the cajun fries are to die for! When you go there make sure you get a bottled sun-drop bottled right in Shawano!
