Milwaukee Adventures // Part 1

So I've mentioned in previous posts that Tom and I have become a couple of Milwaukee foodies. This place is the best kept secret in the Midwest for its foodie culture, and we are digging in! Milwaukee Food Tours does a great job shedding light on the hidden gems of this city.

On that note, I've decided it's time to start a series.

Not only will I include some short reviews or recommendations on restaurants, but I'll also offer a few tidbits on what to do! We aren't big spenders and tend to find adventures in everything we do, so I'll share a few of those secrets with you...some mostly free date ideas!

This blog post idea came on when a girl from work made a comment on how I always find such cool places - so I threw together a little Milwaukee adventure list for her (knowing she loves some good date ideas) and then decided it was blog-worthy info.

Welcome to Milwaukee Adventure Series - Part 1!

Ever wondered what Whiskey flavored ice cream was like? How about Balsamic Strawberry? Or Blackberry and Quark? Check out the 5th Ward for a taste at Purple Door Ice Cream! Their Salted Caramel is definitely a winner.

If you appreciate a strong cup of joe, like we do, Valentine Coffee Company is an absolute must. Every cup is single pour perfection.

Need some yummy American-fare? The Wicked Hop has a burger that's sure to please and a bloody (that I have yet to try) that'll have you coming back for more. Check out their menu online and try not to let your mouth water.

For a fun adventure - we discovered that with a Student ID, you can go to the ticket counter at the Marcus Center for Performing Arts a couple hours before the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra plays and pay only $12 for any seat in the house. A perfect excuse to dress up a little and feel cultured!

Have a fabulous weekend!
