Milwaukee Weekend Trip Report

Didn't have a lot of free time but tried to make the most of it. Arrived Milwaukee Saturday at 11 a.m. Checked into the Hyatt Downtown and headed out to grab a bite to eat before the 2 pm show of Capital Steps at the Pabst Theater. Ate at Applebees in the Grand Avenue Mall. Food was simple but good. Walked over to the theater and stopped to watch the scullers on the river; there was something called the Riverfest happening this past weekend. The Pabst Theater was interesting. They had displays of people who had performed there in the past, like the Lunts, Liberace, Mary Martin, etc. Show was great--so funny and they took shots at everyone. Luciano Havabiscotti singing Go Home Ralph Nader to the tune of O Sole Mio was priceless! Afterwards we walked back over to the Grand Avenue Mall and did a little shopping. Went back to the Hyatt and had a lovely dinner at the Polaris, the hotel's revolving restaurant. What a great view of the city!! And the food was pretty good too. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a great table by the window. On Sunday morning we left to drive up to Menasha for my course on Monday. The course took up most of my time the rest of the week, but Sunday night we ate at Victoria's, an Italian restaurant in Appleton (about a block from our hotel, the Radisson). The food was good but way too much, everyone was leaving with doggie bags. On Monday night we ate at a place called Timberlodge Steakhouse. We really enjoyed this one, we had the special which was an appetizer called a Paul Bunyan Onion (delicious!), cream of spinach soup (DH said it was the best soup he'd ever eaten), 8 oz. sirloin with vegetable and potato, and oreo cheesecake for dessert (to die for!). All this for $30. On Tuesday after the course we went to a cheese factory and bought cheese in the shape of a dinosaur and a dolphin to bring back for the kids. That evening we had a banquet for our course catered by the hotel's restaurant (can't remember the name but it was some famous football player I think--it just came to me, it was Vince Lombardi's). The filet mignon was terrific and the chocolate chip cheesecake also very good. I never ate so much cheesecake in my whole life as I did this week. The weather was gorgeous the entire time. What a beautiful area of the country. I think I could live here, except people say it isn't usually that warm and sunny. Too bad, I'm not into ice fishing.
