Milwaukee here I come...

In the middle of August I am flying up for a week (Aug 13 to Aug 18) of training in the Milwaukee metro area (really I will be in the New Berlin, WI). I am flying in the day before the training starts since the class starts at 8am. I am thinking after I get in to Milwaukee, get my rental car, and get checked in to my hotel, that I might go downtown and fart around the water front area.

So this brings me to a question. Does anyone know of anything good to do to blow some time in the Milwaukee area? Also any good places that I should eat that I can not get anywhere else in the country?

Talk to Kathy and Gary - they're both from Wisconsin.

Mader's in downtown Milwaukee is a popular destination for traditional German food.

Barnacle Bud's is a real experience for Friday fish fry. Hard to find but a good local secret.

Not sure of your age but if you're a beer drinker, a nice beer garden is Von Trier's

And strangely enough, I would actually recommend you go out for Mexican food. There's some great stuff and it's not 'corrupted' by New Mexican influence. Big list here:

I personally like Rudy's and La Perla, though it's been a quite a while since I've been to either.

Good time killers are walking along the lakefront, visiting the art museum (great new architecture) and going for a stroll along the new riverwalk downtown. Hope it's not too humid!

Bud,

Thank you very much for the suggestions. I will have to add those to my list of places to go eat.

Thanks again,
Kevin
