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 →


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 →

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 →

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 →

Ale Asylum Riverhouse

Ale Asylum is a popular Madison-based brewery, but that of course does not stop them from staking out some prime property in Milwaukee. The Riverhouse sits, predictably, right on the river in downtown Milwaukee, and boasts beautiful picture windows and a nice patio to enjoy the scenery. Beer, of course, is their gig, but they...

Story Hill BKC

Tucked away, kind of in the middle of nowhere on the west side of Milwaukee, is a little place called Story Hill BKC. The name sounds magical, and dear reader, this place is. It's quiet, it's quaint, and it's attached to a liquor store that has a seriously impressive selection. The BKC in the name... Continue Reading →
