We're in Milwaukee for the Bead & Button Show, teaching for 8 days. We arrived a day early to set up our classroom and had some time to visit the local sites.
There's a lot to see within a short walk of the show. Downtown is a mixture of old world influenced architecture and modern. We took our traditional walk down to the Public Market - a great indoor market full of different food stalls. But the weather is great - warm with a nice cool breeze from the lake.
Tonight we ate outside at Mo's Irish Pub. The weather is great, warm with a nice breeze. Last night we went out with my editor and friend, Mary, who showed us a great time at the Saint Francis Brewery - their Kolsch amber ale is my new favorite brew. One of the best beers I've ever had.
