Lost Valley Cider Co

Be still my heart, I went to a bar and loved everything I tried - and none of it was wine or cocktails! I know many people are neutral about ciders. For me, they oftentimes still tasted too much like beer; for friends, they were too sweet or not beer-y enough. However, I think this... Continue Reading →

The Knick

The Knick, ¬†aptly named as it is part of the Knickerbocker Hotel, has a very delightful happy hour. Good cocktail, wine, and beer deals (delicious cocktails, by the way), and a decent menu to boot. Every weekday from 3-6, the Knick opens for happy hour. During the summer, they have a pleasant outdoor patio that... Continue Reading →

Zarletti

More Italian food! Girl's gotta have her carbs, you know. Except, Zarletti isn't one of those Italian places that shamelessly loads you with impossible-to-conquer portions. They're more modern and put new twists on the genre... or so I think... I don't actually know much about the classifications of Italian food. What I DO know, though,... Continue Reading →

Wisconsin State Fair

I like the state fair because it has more than your typical food stands you find at the summerfest grounds (don't worry though, Saz's still makes an appearance). You've... Continue Reading →

Tin Widow

New favorite bar alert! From the outside, this Walker's Point bar looks like it would be a dive... but step inside and you've got a speakeasy-esque cocktail joint. It specializes in gin cocktails but has spirits of all kinds.... and if you think all whiskey sours are made equal, then you are wrong. I could... Continue Reading →

Purple Door Ice Cream

If you look at the picture for this post, you may notice a flavor called "beer and pretzels" - that's right folks, we've gone full Wisconsin with this ice cream shop. Purple Door Ice Cream is a Milwaukee classic - and you can find it in person in the 5th Ward or in your local... Continue Reading →

Centro Cafe

Clearly I'm on an Italian kick, because my next stop was Centro Cafe, located on Center Street in Riverwest. I have to say, I do like this part of this little neighborhood - everyone seems to know everyone and there's a lot of unique restaurants and shops. Centro Cafe has Italian staples as well as...
