Showing Some MKE Luv

Recently I discovered a really neat-o blog: Accidental Wisconsinite. Blogger Meghan is a transplant from Portland who fell in love with Milwaukee. Portland is a pretty dang cool city itself, so that is saying a lot. She writes about Milwaukee with the zeal of a convert and appears to have a fun and interesting life.
A recent post--I Heart Milwaukee--is actually an entry for a contest by National Geographic's Traveler magazine. The website will be featuring the favorite entries.
The questionnaire is the usual fill in the blanks list of "best place to do X", favorite foods, and points of interest unique to that city. I totally agree with Meghan's picks of the Third Ward, the Art Museum, the magnificent lakefront, farmers markets and all the cool festivals. The best one was "You can tell if someone is from my city if_____". The answer she gave was "....if they are ridiculously nice and can drink you under the table."
Yeah, that pretty much says it all.
Now if they can just do something about that weather........

Cool--I'll have to check it out! :)

P.S. My niece "Sfoofie" (see my blog links) lives in the Milwaukee area. I'll be sure to ask her to check out your blog and this other blog, too. :)

Nice!! I saw the Fish Fry dish and immediately thought you found somewhere local to dine. But, I have to ask.... what is in the bowl next to the brat?

Awww, those pictures are making me homesick, even though I can't eat most of that stuff.
(Shelia, it's German Potato Salad.)

I'll be sure to check out the blog; thanks for pointing it out.

MHP--I will check that out.

Sheila--this Fish Fry pic is from WI, but there is a church near my house that has them during Lent...which begins next week! GR is right--potato salad.

GR--the brat is from Bavarian Inn and the Fish Fry is from Lakefront Brewery. I think you will like her blog.
