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 →

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 →

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 →

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...
