Life Lately: Milwaukee for July 4th!

Happy Fourth of July! I have been so incredibly busy in between my trip to Electric Forest (I hope to make a post about that soon) and going to my boyfriend’s house on the Fourth of July. My boyfriend is from the Milwaukee area. I have been to Milwaukee once, but I was happy to explore it again. Friday we drove down to the city. It was packed! Summer-Fest, an 11-day long music festival was still going on. We started our adventure by walking along the riverfront. It’s really pretty! It has a nice brick path for walking and beautiful restaurants to eat at. We also stumbled upon the Fonz statue. The television show Happy Days is a sitcom that took place in Milwaukee. So in honor of one of the television characters on that show, they built the Fonz statue. Of course, being typical tourists, we took a picture with the statue.

Besides the statue, we discovered an awesome Italian restaurant in the middle of the city. My ravioli was mouth-watering. We also stopped at this video game-themed bar called the 42 Lounge. Since I’m not 21 yet, I wasn’t sure if I was even allowed to set foot in the bar. The bartender said I could stay until 6:00. There are so many television screens on which to play video games. Me, my boyfriend and another friend played a couple rounds of super smash bros on a plasma TV behind the bar. My boyfriend got this fruity drink titled Kirby. I was super jealous.

On Saturday, I went to my boyfriend’s aunt’s house. We went tubing and my back is still sore. It was nice to see fireworks and eat a good amount of food.

It’s good to be back in Winona to catch up on reading and relax before my 21st birthday!
