Weekend Rewind: Land of Beer and Sausage


I hope everyone had a great weekend! I don’t think we could have asked for better weather. I took Friday off, and me and the boy took a little road trip (OK, I’m not sure an hour and a half drive constitutes a road trip, but whatever…) up to Milwaukee. Here’s the highlights:

Our first stop was Lakefront Brewery, which I’d highly recommend. You get four beers, a brewery tour, a pint glass and a coupon for a free beer at a local establishment—all for $7! Our tour guide was great, and we had fun trying the different beer styles. That says a lot since I’m not big on beer.

Then we walked down Brady Street and grabbed a pie at Zaffiro’s. The hostess was a middle-aged Italian women, the tables were covered with red and white checkered table cloths, and the pizza was super thin—so super charming (just a little too saucy). The place not to miss in that area is Wolski’s, an old school neighborhood bar with a patio. I’d be a regular if I lived up there!

The Cubs were playing the Brewers, but that was really just the excuse we used to get up to Milwaukee and explore. We concealed our fandome (Well, I did—the boy is a Yankees fan…) and rode one of the free bar shuttles from downtown to Miller Park. The Cubs were sucking so bad that we ended up leaving the game early. Typical.

The next morning we grabbed brunch at Zak’s Cafe in Old Third Ward. Sweet potato hash = delish. (I want to try to make it at home, so stay tuned!)

And finally we went on a crazy long walk and ended the trip with custard, naturally!
