Schlemeel, schlemazel, hasenfeffer incorporated!

(a.k.a. Weekly Winners, Milwaukee style)

It was 80 degrees and sunny in Brew City on Friday, and I decided to get out of the office and play tourist in my own home town.

Ahhhh. Nice photos! I lived there as a kid and loved the city. (I lived in a litle town slightly north but we went to the city for stuff a lot for various stuff for school etc. Pabst Theater was a regular field trip for plays.)

Good for you for getting out in the sunshine and taking a break!
