Happy Friday! Well, happy "FUN" Friday as the girls say. We've already done the Happy Dance this morning. I'll have to get it on video - pretty funny. So, one of my latest obsessions has turned into a tradition that Peter and I hope to continue for years to come.
I hope all of you had a fabulous Valentine's Day last Sunday and enjoyed the long weekend. Peter and I happened to be in Milwaukee last year during President's Day weekend for a Marquette game (Peter's alma mater) and the two of us had dinner before meeting up with a bunch of friends for the game and so forth. We had such a blast that weekend that we decided to make it a tradition.
So, about a month and a half ago we decided to head up there for the night and head to Coerper's 5 O'Clock Steakhouse for dinner (same spot as last year). Seriously, the restaurant is awesome (and HILARIOUS) and you feel as though you stepped back in time (think 1960s!) - as neither the ambience nor the decor have changed in decades! I don't even know really how to describe it - old school for sure (they give you about 2 tablespoons of butter on your bread plate / salads w/a lazy susan for your choice of 3 dressings / waitresses that have been there for YEARS and YEARS). Even Rachel Ray agrees - as last year she listed it as one of the best places to grab a juicy steak. We had an awesome dinner - loved chatting w/our waitress and just laughed (as the place is just so funny).
We bopped around Milwaukee for a bit before we had dinner and it was just so nice to hang out and not have an agenda or schedule. We stopped by Alterra for a cup of coffee - one of the best coffee stops I have been to in awhile. It was so hard to walk way from the display of GOODIES as they looked so yummy!
