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

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

All Good Things… A Packers Season Recap In Fan Photos

10 Darth Packer PB 19

There’s really not that much to say about the loss in the playoffs this past weekend, certainly nothing that hundreds of other sports reporters and newscasters haven’t already speculated on or blabbed about so we’re not even going to try.  And even with the record-breaking season for wins, points, Rodgers, and more, we’d like to … Continue reading

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… * * * * * *

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

Milwaukee City Hall: An Historic Building Worth A Visit

City Hall Reverse View

We had the great pleasure of interviewing Milwaukee Mayor (and former Wisconsin Congressman) Tom Barrett at the Milwaukee city hall for the documentary and while there took the opportunity to check the place out for its historical significance.  It’s quite the building but the pictures do much better to tell you all about it than … Continue reading

Ryan Braun’s Graffito In Milwaukee…

Graffito Entrance

Despite this post being rather late in coming since the Brewers in the playoffs was some time ago (hey, we’ve been busy making a documentary here), it’s well worth noting Ryan Braun’s “Graffito” restaurant in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward for it being both cool and classy.  We went there to watch the Brewers during the … Continue reading

Brewers_Game_02

While this is from a game a few weeks ago in which we were able to get to Miller Park and follow some classic Milwaukee tailgating, it’s still a good time and hopefully a sign of bigger things to come in the 2011 playoffs.  It’s such an astounding place to view a game and the … Continue reading
