I haven't spent any time in Milwaukee of late, so I decided a day trip was in order. Unfortunately, Mother Nature elected to be bipolar with a high of 52°. Couple that with strong winds, and I was running more than walking.
My day began with a tour at Clock Shadow Creamery (http://bit.ly/1HyXJyj). The creamery is located in the Walker's Point district, and I took a stroll after to see what the area had to offer. I was happy to unearth some interesting street art and architecture.
Lunch was to be consumed at the Public Market, where my mind was spinning with indecisiveness. Ultimately, I picked a combo meal at Aladdin and did I choose wisely, because it really hit the spot. http://bit.ly/1Gtroym. Be sure to sip a coffee on the fabulous sidewalk patio at Colectivo across the street.
In my book, no trip to Milwaukee would be complete without a photo op with the Fonz. Ayyy....
Due to the weather, my time near the lake was brief; however, I was able to capture a pretty cool photo at the entrance of the fascinating Milwaukee Art Museum.
At last, my highly anticipated jaunt to Lakefront Brewery was about to begin. This delightful brewery earned its own special accolade http://bitly.com/1K6XCNq.
I was a bit discombobulated after exiting Lakefront, getting lost en route to Benelux, my dinner destination. I wound up having to dine at a place near the bus depot, which was nothing to write home about. Benelux will have to wait until next time.

I look forward to a number of summer days in Milwaukee, and will be keeping an eye on this event schedule. http://bit.ly/1dWM59D
