Our last night in Milwaukee was spent watching baseball at Miller Park, where the hometown Brewers defeated the visiting Yankees, 4-3.
Every ballpark has its own flavor, and in Milwaukee it’s meat. Four processed meat mascots, including an Italian sausage and a German bratwurst, raced around the bases between innings.
It was a great way to spend what felt like the first day of summer in Wisconsin. Next stop, Madison.
Ah, the beautiful Lake Michigan and the great Milwaukee County Park system.
Today a participant told us about a Milwaukee tradition: the the weekly fish fry at the Lakefront Brewery, which takes place every Friday night, music provided by the Polka Kings.
It took us a while to find it, but we were delighted by the place. It was a big open room with stained glass lanterns and big tables. We had a long conversation with the family at our table and gathered lots of helpful info about Milwaukee and Madison. The majority of the polka dancers were under the age offive.
