On the road again

18 Aug

Hi folks! I wanted to give you a quick update before I fell off the face of the earth again. Tomorrow morning the Love Muffin and I are road tripping it to Wisconsin. Yes, you read that right – ROAD TRIP! We’ve decided to take the northern route and cross the boarder near Niagara Falls. The trip should take around 20 hours plus the usual stops for food and gas (and the occasional bathroom break). Wish us luck on our journey – hopefully we won’t kill each other – this is the longest we’ve ever spent together in the car (eeek!).

While we’re in Wisconsin we’ve got some great stuff planned. I will try and document as much food and drink as I can to bring you an update after we return next weekend. But to give you an idea of what we have lined up here are a few things:

1. Wedding – reception is a pig roast – nuff said.

2. Milwaukee Irish Fest – Irish music, beer, dancing, dogs – what could be better? (It’s seriously such a blast – you have to check it out!)

3. New Glarus Brewing Co. – Spotted Cow…need I say more?

4. Wollersheim Winery – don’t knock Wisconsin wine until you’ve tried it, okay!?

5. Christian’s Bistro – disgustingly good food in the middle of the State. (Don’t just take my word for it – see what the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had to say)

6. Titletown Brewing Co. – a visit to Wisconsin wouldn’t be complete without visiting Mecca aka Green Bay. We’re planning to check out this fun brewpub in between a Lambeau Field stadium tour and me stalking Aaron Rodgers (don’t ya know!).

That is just a small taste of what we may actually taste. We’ll just have to see where the road takes us and what we find along the way.

Happy Trails!



P.S. I’ll most likely be Tweeting our adventures from the road – you can follow me here.

    Just so you know, Gentile, we are only stopping to pee when we stop for gas. That is road trip rule number one. Other road trip rules to follow…
