Last weekend was absolutely beautiful. The temperature was warm enough to just wear sweatshirts and the river began to unfreeze. Since then it's snowed and refrozen, but I'll share the temporary glory here. My friend and I decided to go downtown to buy birthday presents for our sisters.
I started my day off with a workout. I ran and finished up week five of my 10K trainer program!
Around noon we hopped on the bus downtown.
We got off right in front of the Hot Pop store. That place is the cutest Japanese themed store I've ever found myself in! After almost an hour of contemplation we picked up awesome gifts!
The Third Ward is one of the coolest places in Milwaukee.
We went to the Milwaukee Public Market to find some lunch. I'm always fascinated by all the sweets on display. There are so many little shops in there that it's easy to get lost!
I found a produce stand and bought five apples and three sweet potatoes for only $4!
There was also an oil shop that had all sorts of different flavored cooking oils. They had crazy flavors like dark chocolate, balsamic pear, and honey ginger. I sampled quite a few!
We got calzones for lunch from an Italian meat market place for lunch. I got one with mushrooms, onions, and sausage. Since the weather was beautiful we walked down to the river to eat.
I love all the remodeled apartments along the Riverwalk.
That night we got free tickets to the Milwaukee Drag Show at the Milwaukee Theater. I felt pretty excited and interested to go! I wasn't really sure what to expect.
There were show posters from past performances all over the walls. The theater itself was gigantic as well! We had to wait forever for the doors to open and there was almost a full house!
I feel like the drag show was a very good experience! For the most part there was a lot of singing and dancing. We ended up leaving a little early when the performances got more promiscuous, but overall I enjoyed it!
