Like many midsize cities in America the downtown area of Milwaukee is mostly dead on the weekends. . .folks don’t live downtown, they work downtown, then head home after 5 or 6 p.m. on workdays and stay home on the weekends. . .’home’ being the surrounding suburbs like Delafield, Nashotah, Oconomowoc, Shorewood, etc. The downtown deadness means that we have the whole place to ourselves for wanderin’, explorin’, and general photo-takin’. The corner of “bloody mary” and “Sunday brunch” is a particular delight for us given the fact that the bloody mary is our favorite cocktail on Earth–at least this week. . .the bridges that span the Milwaukee River are fun for traversing as we make our way through the heart of town. . .the public market is filled with lots of good things to eat and drink–the best seafood restaurant in town is in there, a place called the St. Paul Fish Company. . .and of course we have the lake front with the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM), walkways, bike paths, snack shops, cafes, etc. WOW! It is wonderful having this all to ourselves. . .thank you to everyone for staying in the ‘burbs during our visit–jaaa!
I send you crisp and wide-open vibes from the streets of Milwaukee. . .feel them. . .they will make you feel city-fied in a cozy smalltown way.
