I love Bayview more every time I come down here. This time, I met a friend for brunch at Goodkind, a thoroughly adorable place that's a little tucked back off the beaten path. This is another farm to table type of restaurant, offering both brunch and dinner selections. Although I feel like the prices were... Continue Reading →


Parkside 23

First off, this place is amazing. I was fortunate enough to be taken here for a work function, so the food was plentiful and I was able to try more things off the menu than I usually would have. My stomach was uncomfortably full, and my tastebuds were so thankful. Parkside 23 offers a wide... Continue Reading →

Duckpin bowling at Thirsty Duck

Duckpin bowling is usually so much harder than regular bowling. The pins are smaller, the balls are smaller - it completely changes the game... usually. The other duckpin alleys I've been to had regular length lanes. However, Thirsty Duck's bowling lanes are much shorter, which makes the game so much easier. In fact, I would... Continue Reading →

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 →


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

Ah, fair season, also known as the best time of the year. What's not to love - summer weather and a crazy abundance of fried food. 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 →
