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...

Fro-Zone Rolled Ice Cream

I've lately seen a bizarre and intriguing concept pop up on social media: rolled ice cream. Like, little sushi-esque rolls of ice cream, beautifully adorned in a cup with toppings and other goodies. Apparently it originates in Thailand, but has recently become quite trendy here in the good U.S. of A. So, I was naturally... Continue Reading →

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 →


The crown jewel of Milwaukee summer entertainment, Summerfest had its 50th anniversary this year! The World's Largest Music Festival certainly did not disappoint - a couple weeks of non-stop music, food, and beautiful weather is hard to beat. What I appreciate most about Summerfest is that there's something for everybody. It's, of course, awesome enough... Continue Reading →


Yes, most people do a double-take when reading or hearing the name for the first time. And yes, some people giggle. However, Balzac is nothing to laugh at - this Brady Street restaurant and wine bar has got it all, and it shows. They were actually voted best wine bar 5 years in a row,... Continue Reading →

La Masa Empanada Bar

I so wish I had a picture to go along with this post, because La Masa (on Brady Street) is one of my favorite Milwaukee restaurants so far. It's such a gem - delicious food, always open when I need them to be, and there's never a wait to get in! It's not infrequently that... Continue Reading →

Burnhearts Bar

It's kind of upsetting to me that I don't really enjoy beer - after all, I live in a city who has a baseball team called the Brewers. Milwaukee, as we all know, was built on the backs of brewing companies... and there is an absurd amount of beer/beer pride/beer related activities here. I've been... Continue Reading →

The Brown Bottle

Happy Hour has struck once again, and this time we decided to try a Milwaukee classic, in the heart of the brewery-heavy part of Milwaukee (it is actually part of Schlitz Park). The Brown Bottle of course hosted a large selection of beers (a couple dollars cheaper than usual during their daily 3:00-6:00 happy hours),... Continue Reading →
