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

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 →

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...

DiModa Pizza

Apparently it is the age of fancy pizzas, and that means it is a fantastic time to be alive. More and more restaurants are popping up offering unique and artisan flatbreads and pizzas, or at least that is what I've noticed in Milwaukee. This includes a new place called DiModa. DiModa is located where Trocadero... Continue Reading →

Bastille Days

Vive la France! Who cares that Milwaukee is not exactly known for French heritage? Any holiday in any country is reason for celebration and festivals here, and I love it. Bastille Days happens in the middle of July every summer in the middle of Downtown on Cathedral Square and the surrounding blocks. Like most festivals,... Continue Reading →
