Milwaukee Adventures // Part 3

Milwaukee Adventures // Part 3

I'm the WORST these days. We were in Iowa one weekend, Up North another weekend, we had friends in town from out of state, and the list goes on...

But how about I give you a more exciting list, ehh?

Here's my third installment of the adventure series - and take note, because one of these is an AWESOME annual event that is happening this coming weekend! In fact, let me plan the most PERFECT Sunday for you. On June 22nd, just plan on this itinerary. You won't regret it!

First of all, you need to start your day off with an absolutely amazing cup of coffee. Anodyne Coffee Roasters is currently my favorite coffee joint. Their dark roasts are have such depth and arrays of flavor, just drink it black. They have locations in Bayview and Walker's Point, but I personally love their Walker's Point Roastery locale - seriously give these awesome people your business!

Hang onto your hunger for a few hours because next you need to go on your adventure. Side note, Thomas and I came upon this last year by complete accident. We were doing our usual putzing around downtown after church and the Milwaukee Air and Water Show was happening on the lakefront! It gets super packed, but the show is amazing! Helicopters upside down? Planes writing in the sky? You name it, it's there. It goes from 10-3, but just show up whenever and enjoy the people watching :) Oh, and be wary of parking, it's a zoo.

This gem. Ohhh this GEM. Be prepared to take this meal slow. Balzac is a wine bar just off of Brady St. Sundays, they have a deal for their wine - HALF OFF ALL BOTTLES UNDER $60. Thomas and I split a bottle between us and work on a good buzz. You are required (by me) to try their Sac Mac. It's mac'n'cheese like you wouldn't believe. Perfection. Everything else is small plates that are meant for sharing and you probably can't go wrong with anything on their menu.

If you're looking for some "heavier" food, try Stubby's Gastrogrub and Beer Bar. Cheese curds, nachos, flat-breads, wings, burgers...typical Wisconsin fare. But be careful how much you eat! We were full through the following morning!

After lunch, get back to the A&W Show or finish off your day with a walk or bike ride on the gorgeous trails found all over the MKE area.

Happy Adventuring!
