One of the hallmarks of spring in Lake Country is when The Kiltie in Oconomowoc opens for the season. And there's good reason for that. Almost nothing has more summer promise than a night at this nostalgic drive-in, which is open seasonally.

On the Burger Trail: Company Burger at Company Brewing

Fri, 4 Aug 2017 11:01:00 CDT

I've always liked the laid back vibe at Company Brewing. There's something warm, inviting and lived-in about it. And when you pair that with owner and brewmaster George Bregar's beer, or one of the tap cocktails, it's a pretty great spot to hang just about any night of the week.

Milwaukee's secret gardens: The second floor deck garden at Onesto

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 11:01:00 CDT

Probably the last place you'd expect to find a garden is two stories up in the middle of the Third Ward. But, if you gaze up to the second floor balcony behind Onesto you might spy a burst of green. That's because that unused second story space has been repurposed into a fully functional kitchen garden.

Deciding which AJ Bombers burger to eat for the Burger Trail series wasn't simple. After all, there's a laundry list of options from which to choose. But, since award-winning burgers should be the best of the bunch, I opted for the Travel Channel's Food Wars Champion The Milwaukee Burger.
