What Do You Do In Milwaukee? (Part II)
11. Be a Great Lake Swimmer. South Milwaukee’s Grant Park has beach access to the surprisingly crystal clear and deliciously refreshing waters of the great Lake Michigan. The waters also cure compounded alcohol hangovers of liquor+beer+wine. Check that off my bucket list!
12. Bike the Oak Leaf Trail. Milwaukee’s Oak Leaf Trail is a glorious system of bike trail looping 100 miles of Milwaukee County. The vigorous ride wasn’t the best idea after staying out til 5 a.m. the previous evening but this only affected me during the low-grade incline of the return trip using the direct street route home.
13. Spread the Veganomicon. Resisting the urge to crash hard after our bike ride, we catered a huge vegan meal for Wok Man’s mom and grandmother. On the menu: Sweet basil pesto tapenade (pg. 65) with raw flax crackers, Chick pea cutlets (pg. 133) with mustard sauce (pg.204) with lemony roasted potatoes (pg. 109) and farmer-fresh corn on the cob. Unfortunately we were too fatigued to make the German apple cake from the Joy of Vegan Baking for dessert.
And that’s what you do in the MKE.
