Stradivarius Stolen In Milwaukee

Stradivarius Six Million

Okay, not something to be proud of.  Hope they catch who did it.  But it is a bit humorous that the thief was decent enough to use a stun gun and not a hand gun with bullets. Theft of Stradivarius violin was for money, not possession, experts say. via Theft of Stradivarius violin was for … Continue reading

The Tripoli Shrine Center In Milwaukee

Tripoli Shrine FRONT

I took these shots on a snowy, gloomy day, so they don’t even come close to the dazzling nature of the Tripoli Shrine Center in Milwaukee.  Didn’t get a chance to go inside, which I hear is even more astounding, but will get around to that next time in Milwaukee. From the Tripoli Shrine Center … Continue reading

Does That Make It His Eleventy-Squaredth Birthday? (Humor)

JRR Tolkien BD Cropped

Since Wisconsin does have an intimate and direct connection with Tolkien, Lord Of The Rings, and The Hobbit, that being the original manuscripts are permenantly archived at Marquette University, it only seems fitting to re-post this rather humorous  page from a fellow Cheesehead who’s site is well worth checking out for his sense of humor … Continue reading

John Hawks Pub in Milwaukee

John Hawks Pub 01

Whenever I’ve got to Downtown Milwaukee to meet with my man Carlo at Marcus Theatres, we step downstairs to the John Hawks Brew Pub from some great English fair (or fish fry on the one Friday I was there).  Love this place.  Great food, great view of the river, espeecially if you sit out on … Continue reading

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett Talks Sports, Art & Wisconsin Nice

Tom Barrett Screen Shot Web

I had the pleasure of interviewing Tom Barrett as well last fall (long before the recall election) and he gave some interesting insights on our love of arts, sports, and of course the Wisconsin Nice we are all so familiar with.  It was another great interview for the documentary and will likely be a great … Continue reading

Milwaukee Center, The Pabst Theatre & Milwaukee Rep

Milwaukee Center 08

The Milwaukee Center is quite an amazing place to visit.  Located just across from city hall, this is where we were at for the Lombardi play opening night last November.  It has a lot of other cool elements including the Milwaukee Repetory Theater and the legendary Pabst Theatre.  Plus right across the stree, hidden in … Continue reading

Milwaukee’s Mitchell Park Domes: The Finally

Dome Interior 08

I had posted about the Mitchell Park Domes a couple of times prior but realize that interior shots of the place where never posted.  Since the topic has been covered in words, just enjoy the pictures this time around. * * * * * *

Wisconsin Cheese Mart In Milwaukee

Wisconsin Cheese Mart 01

Wisconsin Cheese Mart in Milwaukee (just down the street from Usingers) is the kind of cheese shop that John Cleese would be more than welcomed to visit since they have nearly every kind of cheese he could possibly list off.  Not only that, most of the cheeses here are many of the Wisconsin originals made … Continue reading

Usingers Sausages: Famous For A Reason

Usingers 02

While some of these photos are from last fall when we visited Usingers Famous Sausages, we also had the cahnce to try some more of it this weekend when first arriving in Milwaukee and it’s pretty clear that they know what they are doing.  My personal favorite was the smoked Canadian Bacon (had no idea … Continue reading

Bombers, Beers, Burgers & A Really Big Chair

Bombers 08

Just happened across these photos again of Bomber’s in Milwaukee last fall, most well know for their Bomber’s Burger that was featured on the Food Wars last summer.  I also wonder if the place might have been named after the Mitchell B-25 Bomber, since General Billy Mitchell was from Milwaukee and his presence is see … Continue reading

The Milwaukee Riverfront: A Place To Fall In Love (With)

Milwaukee Riverfront 01

We shot a few interviews on the Milwaukee Riverfront but the beauty of it really does not need words, so pictures it is… * * * * * *

West Allis Cheese In The Milwaukee Public Market

West Allis Cheese 03

While we are on the topic of the Milwaukee Public Market (from yesterday’s post) it would be timely to mention the West Allis Cheese Shop inside the market.  They also have  two (or more) other shops in the Milwaukee area, but this was the only one we made it to on our last trip.  Lots … Continue reading

Classic Meets Modern At The Milwaukee Public Market

Public Market 01

The Milwaukee Public Market is not what one might expect on first glance.  Somewhat hidden under an overpass and series of bridges in downtown Milwaukee, you have to know where you are going to find it.  Once inside, however, this seeming rustic place becomes a world of unique and interesting shops, stands, and a wine … Continue reading

The Milwaukee Domes Art Festival 2011

Dome Art 01

While a bit late in posting these, art is far more long lasting than travel so we’re sure having these up at any time is a good thing.  The pictures speak for themselves so we’ll leave it at that… * * * * * *

An Oddly Wisconsin Experience At The Mitchell Park Domes In Milwaukee

Mitchell Dome 08

The Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee where something both expected and unique.  When we went to visit them on a Saturday afternoon there were any number of interessting things going on including an art festival, a wedding, and a band playing in the park.  The coolest thing about this place (besides it having the same … Continue reading

The Safe House In Milwaukee, Where Getting Out Is A Maze…

Safe Exit 06

As mentioned yesterday, The Safe House in Milwaukee is a great place to go for lunch or dinner.  We forgot to mention that the food is just as good as the ambiance and fun of being in a spy themed place.  When you do finally get a chance to go there, make sure you ask … Continue reading

Milwaukee’s Safe House Is A Place Worth Finding, If You Can…

Safe House 05

We visited the Safe House in Downtown Milwaukee a short while back and found it to be one of the most fascinating restaurants in the entire state of Wisconsin.  It’s a mystery and spy themed place that has so much going on inside (and underneath) that it’s hard to get to all of it in … Continue reading
