It’s me…she. Raised in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin I’ve called this city home for 25 years. Is this my quarter life crisis? Maybe. Don’t get me wrong I love to travel and you will see some of that here, but this is about Milwaukee. Eating here. Drinking here. Living here. Loving here.
Well let’s jump right in. Here’s what happened this weekend…
Friday night was calm, but Saturday we checked out Pizza Man. Now if you’re a Milwaukee native you remember that the original Pizza Man was on North Avenue and Oakland. It burned down in January on 2010. See here —> (http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/82074552.html) Since it was Saturday we did wait for about an hour, but that was to be expected. We snagged a spot at the bar. Pizza Man features only Wisconsin Breweries on tap on a rotating basis, which is pretty awesome. Also for you wine-o’s out there, they have about eight on tap as well. As for me, I am a mixed drink kind of girl so I of course tried one of their craft cocktails called Rose and Diamonds I believe which was delicious. I highly recommend it. The food way equally as pleasing. I tried an artichoke cream cheese pizza that was delightful. They also offer a gluten free crust for all you non-wheat eaters out there!

Sunday morning we (meaning my parents and I) ventured down to Bay View. Bay View has so many great places to eat and drink if you’re looking for more of a causal atmosphere. We took a walk at South Shore park; a must do if you haven’t. The view of the skyline is my favorite. We then stopped at Groppi’s Market which is located on Russell. (http://ggroppifoodmarket.com/) This local spot has been around for years. I mean YEARS. They feature local bakeries/products, homemade items, fresh produce, tons of meats and cheeses, and a great liquor selection. It’s an ideal spot to stop for a quick bit as their panini’s are ready in eight minutes and are fantastic. My favorite is the Chicken Caesar. SOO GOOD! I also picked up some Purple Door Mint Chip. (http://www.purpledooricecream.com/) Located on 2nd Street they are a must stop for any ice cream lover. Their pints are feature in a good amount of grocery destinations around the city as well! They always get a thumbs up from me.
That’s it for now. Have a great start to your week! Until next time… sheseesmke.
