RHINELANDER - Sportsman's Cafe has stood proudly next to the railroad tracks in Rhinelander for decades.

Now, it's been revitalized - with someone new in the kitchen.

Sue Wege took over Sportsman's January 1.

She's been making food for 32 years, and enjoys it every day.

"I like to see the smile on the people's faces when they see their food. To see them laugh, and smile, and enjoy their food, is a good thing for me," she says.

Sportsman's is one place in town you can get something whether it's bright or dark outside.

It's open all night long four days a week.

"There's just been no place for people that go out tonight to go. This, I thought, would be a good idea to get something back in the area so that people can stop here after bar and get something to eat," she says.

Sue just introduced a new sandwich for hungry breakfast-eaters in the morning.

The breakfast chimichanga is a meal in itself.
