Heading north of the border for the weekend? Don't enter Milwaukee without my picks for the best drinking, dining, and recreating.
A soccer bar where the beer flows like water and the dudes all sport beards. Grab a Spotted Cow and a board game and join the party.
Alterra takes the crown for best MKE java-slinger, but SCC doesn't mess around--especially in the latte department. Try a Mexican mocha of you're feeling dessert-y.
The long menu of tiki drinks is daunting so remember this- you can't go wrong with the Mai tai (MKE's best, they claim!). Great staff and chill island tunes.
The fish fry is king at this super old-school German supper club. There's haddock, walleye, and perch, with the latter being your best bet. Grab a cup of chicken dumpling soup on the side.
Simply the finest Milwaukee indulgence (other than beer, obviously!). Try a 3-scoop sundae...and plan to share.
A sprawling green space where the high school dudes skateboard, their parents hang in the al fresco biergarten, and their pups frolic in the off-leash dog park.
The tastes of Wisconsin meet global flavors--all under one roof! Beeline toward the cheese stall (obviously!) but make sure to sample the chocolates, coffee, Mexican fare, and seafood.
A really fun, festive Mexican spot. Try the ginger margarita to start. Taco-wise, the carnitas and grilled tilapia are the stars (and opt for corn tortillas).
A standby for consistently well-executed espresso drinks and locally sourced breakfast (try the Local Yolkel) and lunch. Grab a bag of beans and some homemade granola on your way out.
Right outside the Public Market, this gastropub is perma-packed thanks to its hearty Euro fare (try the pannenkoeken at brunch) and scores of Belgian beers. There upstairs deck is prime real estate in warm months.
I've been on scores of brewery tours, but none as entertaining as LFB's. And when $7 buys your tour, a souvenir pint glass, and 4 beer pours, this is easily the best value you'll ever find too!
